While it does not have the long history of Ankor Wat, Anping Tree House is definitely worth a visit for its own version of the "accidental" beauty that nature can create. Ankor Wat was impressive for the abundance of banyan trees crisscrossing each other, growing over, through, next to structures in ruins. But because they were ruins, visitors essentially could only see exteriors. Anping Tree House, on the other hand, was originally a vacated storage area. In some ways, it was much more interesting to go inside the house and see the growth atop of you and around you, framing doors, through windows and walls. Outside, there was a metal staircase that led to a small viewing/sitting area above one of the storage rooms . We arrived right before closing, so we had the area to ourselves. It was very calming and awe-inspiring to sit amongst the tree trunks and branches. When the dim lights of the house came on, it felt somewhat magical. The museum next door is also interesting to visit if you have time. It gives a simple snapshot of what life was like when the Dutch occupied Taiwan.
