Me and my husband had great stay at Sai Kau Kin Old House, it's in the central of Tainan city and very nice neighborhood with easy walking distance of all Tainan's famous food. The house itself is very comfy and nicely designed, we do love the old fashion interior touch that James put in his house. And also the convenience...

We stayed here for 5 nights in April! It was my first visit to Tainan, and as it was the ancient capital of Taiwan (before Taipei), I thought it will be interesting to try an min-shu experience. This turned out to be an excellent choice, as the old (but refurbished) house is located in a narrow laneway - your neighbours...

This is a hotel for the Do It Yourselfers. Hopefully the taxi driver knows the street, in that case he is an expert. Rather direct him to Kangle street and then start searching for a small side alley. Don´t ¨panick if the door is closed. call the owner. He will be there within 5 minutes. He is very energetic and...

The location is perfect-- right in the heart of the old town Tainan so handy to explore the city. There are also lots of eateries around for you to taste all kinds of Taiwanese delicacies. The house itself is century old but equipped with all modern amenities needed. What makes the B&B outstanding is the owner Mr. Tsai (James). He...

If you are like me, and always hope to find that hidden gem with personal touch and local flair that makes your trip unique and special - I am sure you will enjoy your stay at Sai-Kau-Kin.

Staying in West Central District/ North District

Neighbourhood Profile
West Central District/ North District
The West Central District is the most populous and the busiest area. A lot of shops and hotels crowd the district, and the long-standing history results in a variety of street food. In addition to that, this district also has the highest number of temples. This is how it got the name “Tainan’s Pantheon.” Historic buildings are literally ubiquitous. For example, Hayashi Department Store, National Museum of Taiwan Literature, Confucius Temple, Chihkan Tower (formerly Fort Provintia), Sacrificial Rites Martial Temple, Tainan Grand Mazu (name of a goddess) Temple, etc. Recently, the tourism in Tainan has laid emphasis on alleys and lanes. Examples include Fujhong Street specialising in creative handicrafts, as-you-stroll desserts on Jhengsing Street, Shennong Street lined with hundred-year-old ancient houses, Sinyi Street on which the old city gate stands, Sinmei Street where old and new cultures fuse together, and Guohua Street and Baoan Raod famous for all the savoury food. All the traditional and delicious food and flavours are about to burst in your mouth. The North District, on the other hand, is a quiet secret hideaway. Lane 321 on Gongyuan Road used to be a Japanese soldiers’ dormitory. Now a few artists have set up their studios here. There are diversified art styles in each old Japanese-style house. The Garden Night Market on Haian Road is one of the famous night markets in both Tainan and Taiwan, and was the top 12 Facebook check-in location worldwide in 2013.
