What We Love About Tainan

Tainan is Taiwan's oldest city and was the country's capital during the Qing dynasty. This old town has now been transformed into a hipster enclave with a multitude of food options that you can stuff your face with! Take a look at an abandoned sugar refinery that is now the Ten Drum Cultural Village! Queue early for the best seats at the Taiko Drumming show and take a tour of the sugar mill afterwards. Retrace Tainan's history as a Dutch colony by visiting Fort Provintia and Fort Zeelandia or visit one of the city's oldest temples – Confucian Temple.
