Travel from Taipei to Tainan by bus

The ancient city of Tainan used to be the beating heart of Taiwan for over 200 years, earning it the nickname ‘Capital City’. Tainan is home to thousands of temples and historical landmarks that remind the city of its history and culture. Tradition is alive and thriving seamlessly with modernity, as evidenced by the festivals and parades held in its busy streets. The local food is legendary yet unique only to the region, which is why cooking classes are the best way to get to know the city. Other ways to explore Tainan are visits to Chimei Museum, Ten Drum Cultural Village, and various street markets all over the city.

The best time to enjoy Tainan is from December to February, when there are lesser crowds and the weather is cool and dry. But if you’re keen to join the festivities, book a reservation in February for the Chinese New Year celebrations.

Since it’s a small city, getting around Tainan isn’t a problem. The MRT system and intercity bus lines are easy to navigate and always efficient. Taxi-hailing apps like Uber are also available in the city.
