Pacific Pines, Australia
Short visit is greatIt is in a convenient location and easy to get to. Need about 20mins the most. There is information on it and is good enough.
Almost nothing historical leftChihkan Tower is located at Section 2, Minzu Road. The tower was build around 1650 by Dutch, named Fort Provintia, as a defense tower in urban area. 1662, the fort was taken by Koxinga (郑成功), a Chinese general, and turned it into administration center of Tainan. The old fort was completely destroyed by earthquake. The beautiful towers that we can see today is built in 19th century on the foundation of the old fort. It has been renamed as Chihkan Tower. Well, these towers actually have diminished the historical value of the site, to almost zero.
I liked it!Seems like a lot of people weren’t impressed with this spot, but I liked it. It’s a nice change from the temples that you see throughout the area. A nice peaceful spot to sit under the trees and watch the fish. For only 10NT$ you can feed them which was fun. Though small, it was worth a stroll through. One thing I really liked was the fish roof ends that you can see well from the second floors.

Interesting historic landmark in the West Central District of TainanFor a glimpse at the Dutch period in Taiwan, Chihkan Tower offers a very interesting historical experience of the former Fort Provintia, as well as some fascinating perspective on one of the greatest military leaders in Taiwan, Koxinga. I highly recommend spending an hour here checking out the site.
Good view of old fortGood view during evening. Bu not much to see. It is basically a renovated old fort from Dutch era. Good to spend sometime to take pictures and reading the history
