Interesting but not a must-see

A local attraction popular with schools. The main draw are the ruins of the buildings overgrown with banyan trees. Not much else to see if you are not into local history.

It is a former factory. The roots found it way through the whole building. It looks a bite spooky ideal for a horror movie set. Frame of stairs have made so you can see the treehouse from different levels and angle.

An attraction to see the works of mother nature. There is a lake where you can purchase fish food to feed the fish and a look out deck for sight-seeing. Definitely a place to snap Instagram worthy pictures.

Big old warehouse, left deserted, trees growing through walls and floor and ceiling. Really nice. Good for photos. Shows how quickly nature can recover from man's encroach.

I honestly think it is worth visiting. In any case the an ping old street is just beside it. nice to do some sight seeing (entrance fee doesn't make u a lot poorer) and take some nice pictures worthy of profile pics somewhere. feel the power of the trees (old trees eating up an old house).. then stroll down the...

Place is filled with people taking selfies, which a lot of places are I guess. The exhibition inside the merchant house is quite nice though.

The Anping Tree House is an old abandoned warehouse used in WW2 and is now overtaken with banyan trees. It is incredible how nature can over take something so completely. We had a great time exploring it. The cost to enter was less and $2USD.

I took around 45min of bus from Tainan train station to tree house. I reached here around 4.30pm and they close around 1800. You can check their opening hour/last entry time so that you can have more time spent inside tree house. Ticket is NT50/person (if not mistaken). If for your first visit then I would say yes, but for... More

Four of us visited this old building on 12 Mar (Sunday). Not very crowded, and is a nice place to take photos with the trees integrating with some old houses. Entrance fee NT$50 per person.

Honestly, I thought it would be like a jungle house. But the surrounding is quite industrial, in the run-down, seen better days kinda sense. The tree house itself is interesting if you haven't been to a rain forest. The vicinity is active with souvenir shops, local food shops, quite fun to walk around

Staying in Anping District/ Annan District

Neighbourhood Profile
Anping District/ Annan District
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 House, in which beautiful stories were created along with the running water in the canal in the course of history. The National Museum of Taiwan History in the form of green building stands in Annan District. Next to the coastal Cihcao Dajhong Temple is the amazingly gorgeous green tunnel formed by mangroves. Moving slowly in the river course on a pipe raft, you will be greeted by hermit crabs and mudskippers. The sunlight glitters in the woods. This will be like a tranquil journey in the no-man Amazon. What comes next is Luermen River estuary. People can enjoy the beautiful sunset in the Natural Defence of the Capital and also visit the one and only temple which has two barefooted door gods of foreign descent, guarding General Jheng Chengkong, making the trip to Tainan full of stories and mysteries.
