My favourite city in Taiwan. Tainan is the former capital and the oldest city in Taiwan. It's a sprawling metropolitan city, but underneath it's modern appearance is an old, atmospheric, and traditional soul; More people go to the temples than they do cinemas. Tainan is also the food heaven in Taiwan, and it's famous for its snacks. The people in Tainan are also friendlier and hospitable.
Tainan is a city of temples. Not just for show, these are living temples with a constant flow of worshipers throughout the day. It is also the old capital of Taiwan. There are a smattering of historic sights here for the tourist--enough to merit two full days of exploring. It's also a big foodie town, so in between temples, dig into a bowl of something delicious.
Taiwan is not just about Taipei. Want to find the authentic Taiwan instead of another Asian metropolis like Hong Kong or Singapore, then come to Tainan. Tainan is the oldest city, the cultural capital, and the culinary center of Taiwan, a small city with laid back atmosphere and urban convenience. Tainan is a must go destination when you visit Taiwan only 2 hours away from Taipei by high speed rail.
When we visit Tainan, we found the city looks old and the transport not in order. My son had stayed here four years and he took us to search Tainan food.'Zhenzu Milk Tea' is so delicious but better not to drink a lot because it is too sweet.
