“Kind of cool, but not worth going out of your way”

If you are in Tainan anyway, it's pretty neat to see how the banyan trees have grown around this old warehouse. Not worth a special trip out of your way to see, though.

Green trees everywhere. Near Ann-Ping, the most famous collections for many cultural shops and delicious food. Can spend a whole day here to enjoy the calm and easy atmosphere in Southern Taiwan. Thumbs up from locals.

We got some amazing pictures, but there is no need to stay too long here. They have a ton of information on attractions they PLAN to build in the area and I'm sure in the future you could find more to do in the area. It's a short walk to the Fort from here, which is good as you can include the Tree House into any itinerary.

I won't repeat what everyone else has said. It's interesting and fun here.
Make sure you slow down in the very first room of the warehouse however, because there are a series of well written panels in English explaining why and how the banyan tree gets to do all this stuff. It's quite fascinating and obviously written by someone who is well versed in the science of banyan trees. I never thought I would care but by the time I walked out I was a convert.
The museum next door is also really good. Story of early peoples here. Our guide book said the upstairs wax dioramas were hokey but I didn't think so. They were amazingly life-like and its nice to know that all the ancient peoples smiled all the time. Watch out for the three guys armed to the teeth who are about to tackle a tiny little deer. Must have been macho night at the ranch.
Seriously, this site is OK. And real nice washrooms.

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.
