As the Tainan City Bus to Anping district stops here, I thought I should not give this place a miss. The adult ticket costs only 50 NTD (students and elderly get 50% off at 25 NTD!) and you can take pictures at the grand entrance...More

The name of this place may sounds exotic, but in reality it's just a fancy name for an old fortress built in the late Qing Dynasty (c. 1870's). The castle gate is an arched opening accessed by a bridge which in those days, could be...More

Just some cannons surrounding an old fort. When I was there they fired one ofbthe cannons which was pretty cool but this place is not worth getting of the track for.

I kind of went on a bit of a wander throughout the city and ended up here. It's pretty out of the way from everything and not necessarily worth the trip however if you are interested in old forts it's kind of interesting.

The outside gate in the picture above is probably the most interesting part of the castle. The show of the guards shooting the canon is kind of hoaky. Definitely not a must see attraction.

I came here with my friends, hoping that we able to learn Taiwan history and beautiful surroundings. But, we were disappointed. Basically, it's just a training camp. That's it. There's no explanation or whatever.

Anping District is the area first developed in Taiwan.
It is also the key to Taiwan’s involvement in the
international community. The two famous historic
monuments, Anping Fort (a.k.a. Fort Zeelandia) and
Eternal Golden Castle leave behind them the traces of
international trade made by various countries. Another
historic monument that stands the test of time is Tree
