[Eternal Golden Castle] 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.). Watch out the battleship just beside the seashore, which is a now a marine museum.
Beautiful lake. Nice Japanese buildings.Would have been nice to see the Sakura .. Will go back in March
Tainan has several really nice lakes near by. They are pretty to walk around and make for a nice trip. They always miss some facilities, like a decent place to have lunch, etc.
