Hi there!! If you have followed me on my previous posting. I am posting my trip to Tainan City, Southern Taiwan which is the oldest city in the country. It has left behind a very complex history but I will not dwell into that as I will not bore my reader with history lesson. =P
Back to the train.This is shot in the train… a long4 1/2 hr journey from Hsinchu by the normal train. If I recall correctly, there were about 25 stops before reaching Tainan.
Yup.. you could see that I was getting bored here. Taking weird shots. HAHA!!
The view. The railway tracks is near the coast. So you could see lot of wind turbine along the way.
… lots of open fields where farmers plating their crops. So, if you like to see the view of the country side, you could take this normal train and enjoy the slow ride.
One of the stops along the way before arriving in Tainan.
Ok… let’s skip and head to Tainan.
My first stop was to Chikan Tower or also known as Fort Provintia. It is among the most important historic sites in Tainan City as well as all of Taiwan and not to mention, also one of the prettiest.
Below is the map of the Chikan tower and it’s compound. Yup… it is right in the heart of Tainan city surrounded by the newer buildings.
View from the entrance to the tower. You can see the stone slabs which is the turtle monument.
Old quarters which is turn into souvenir shops.
Like what you read and see? Well, dun stop. Follow me on my next posting to see more of Tainan through my ‘íphone 4s’ lense. =)
