Taiwan – Tainan; 2 Days Trip on History (2)

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.

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.

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.
