We planned a day to go around the anoint old street, we walked with our children, so we took it easy. The shops are not that special. There are a few temples, but small and nice to pass by, but that is it. Some local snacks are avaible around the fort, nice to try. But would not recommend Anping to... More

Interesting old street in the heart of Anping. Nice to have a walk here even after sunset. I recommend you to try shrimp crackers and oyster rolls.

a lot to see. a lot to eat. just like any other night market in taiwan. (well, almost) but it will be a bit crowded as there will a lot inconsiderate people who likes to stand in the middle of the road discussing whether to stop in front of the stall and buy that food.

This is a lovely street with a nice market to match. However, the most beautiful thing on the street is a shop called "Owl Depot", which is dedicated to owls. It features two stories with thousands of different owls of all shapes and sizes. Absolutely wonderful!!!

There's plenty of temples in the surrounding area, it's near the old fort, and it's a bustling old street with lots of choice!

If you want the night market type experience, but only have time during the day, this is a good substitute. They'll have a lot of the traditional fares, as well as some random merchandise. Might as well swing by if you will be visiting the Old Fort and/or the Treehouse.

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.
