This place has so much history and story to tell. Sadly most parts of the old port reconstructed. But it is still worthy to visit and take a rest. Personally, I learn a lot about the history of Taiwan.

Anping District/ Annan District
Anping District is the area first developed in Taiwan.
It is also the key to Taiwan’s involvement in the

monuments, Anping Fort (a.k.a. Fort Zeelandia) and
Eternal Golden Castle leave behind them the traces of
international trade made by various countries. Another
historic monument that stands the test of time is Tree
House, in which beautiful stories were created along
