At present this place is partially covered in scaffolding and sheeting, so it takes away from the scene and to be fair it's not all that interesting anyway, if you were going to miss one on your walking trip of the city then this would...More

the gate is somewhat hidden in a humble park with some interesting trees. you are just far away enough to be out of the noisy traffic. My highlight was enjoying a beer (35NT!) on the historic city wall. i noticed the gates are closed often......More

It is good for a few photos but it probably won't keep you interested for more than 20 minutes. Not a good place for disabled people or anyone with a stroller.

Landmarks of Tainan. Worth a visit and pictures. The Firing ceremony in the afternoon is interesting. Outside the walls is one of the most famous special restaurants in Tainan.(Wu-Jiao Chuan Ban,means 5 penny restaurant.)

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
