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

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,
