Quite historical - 1600s and the place is very clean with lots of interpretive boards around. It is not a big place and it should only take someone around an hour to walk the entire grounds. There is a large temple next to this castle so it would be worthwhile to visit. There are a lot of local eateries around... More

We took Tainan bus no. 2 to Anping Fort which stops at Anbei Road (last stop). Anbei Road is near to Anping Tree House and Former Tait & Co. Merchant House (3 mins walk). Took some pictures of the buildings as have no intention to enter. Then we walked to Anping Fort taking Gubao Street. (refer to picture) Entrance fee... More

I really love going to the Anping area because there's quite a lot to see around here! Be prepared to pay for lots of little entrance fees- 50 nt here, 25 nt there. The old street along the fort is lined with a market at the weekend, almost feels like a nightmarket during the day. Quite fun if you've got... More

Taiwan was one of the key Dutch colonies in Asia (1624-1662). This fort was the most important structure in Taiwan. The visitor can see the complexity of the 17th century Dutch construction and many walls have been excavated for archaeological research. There is also a very good museum that is part of the small admission fee. This is definitely a... More

There are some history here between Dutch and the local Taiwanese. For our family, it was just another bathroom break from the bus ride. Overall, the place was poorly kept when they have an admission charge. Our family enjoyed the surrounding neighborhood with the misc. food/drink stands instead.

This spot is very important in terms of history of Anping or even Taiwan. However, the presentation of the whole spot is poor. Information is far from enough ad it is fobidden to take photos of exhibits in the tiny museum. I learned about the background mostly from Tait (德記洋行, the trading firm museum next to Anping Tree House) instead.... More

Now the tower and the area around it are damaged and under repair (as of Dec/2016). Check the information if you want to enjoy the perfect Anping Fort. I've been here twice, once with my family, and my friend. I liked the view from the tower and the area around it, inspiring me of ancient Tainan when the Fort was... More

This is quite a famous place. It has historical atomsphere and food is great. But it would be crowed if weekends. If you prefer quiet place, you should go at weekdays.

They had a performance but it was just 3 men dressed in traditional garb and one man just talk and talk, narrating what happened in the past. For those keen on history it is interesting and informative, if not - it might spoil your day. Entrance fee is for maintanence for the place.
