Shennong Street(神農街)

Traveler rating:4 682 Reviews

Monday:Open 24 hours a day





Shennong Street (神農街) was the entrance to the Tainan Five Channels area important river ports from the Qing Dynasty. Merchants at the time would all enter Tainan through this street, making it the busiest district. However, a century of evolution has transformed the original river port into a city road. While the street was formerly in decline due to being old-fashioned and outdated, it has become a hub of culture creation and art distribution in recent years, and it’s now a mecca for young art enthusiasts in Tainan. The shops on both sides of the street are all packed with various handmade product designs. To preserve their original ideas, many of the shopkeepers prohibit photography, so please be mindful of the shop's rules. All of the shops on the street are definitely worth a look, so don't just walk down the street, and be sure to check out every store.

    I walked here on the way to a night market. It was a beautiful old street to walk up and take some good photos.

    Nothing much. Good to take photo but not much content. Went on a weekday night and there are only about 5 shops in operation. Thought it might be some street for nightlife, but nope. It is just a street. Disappointed trip.

    We really enjoyed walking down this road but many of the shops were closed. One of the storekeepers said the weekend is best. There are a variety of stores with a range of goods. The shoe store had hand made leather shoes, boots and wallets at a fair price. Lots of photo opportunities in this street.

    We visited at night and lots of the smaller shops were open. Awesome place to see historical architecture and it wasn't too crowded on the night we visited.
