Introduce

Anping Tree House(安平樹屋) is located behind the Tait& Co. Merchant House(德記洋行), and was originally a Tait& Co. Warehouse. Built around the end of the 19th Century at the beginning of the Japanese Colonial Period, this place was also once a warehouse of the Japan Salt Corporation, and the current scale the building is the product of extension by the Japanese. After over a hundred years of transformation, the warehouse wall is covered in banyan roots, and the dense, towering treetops seem to have become the roof of the warehouse. This unusual appearance gives Anping Tree House a sense of mystery, and the distinctive form of the tree house is a marvel of symbiosis, similar to the large trees of Angkor Wat coiled around the Ta Prohm Temple. The gaps between the tree trunks make a perfect walkway for people to walk through, and one can also travel among the treetops. The tree house is also a good habitat for wildlife, and lots of squirrels and birds frolic. When tired of walking, tourists can visit the Tree House coffee shop, cool down with an ice cream and then continue to explore the elegance of Anping.

    Really cool place

    Traveler rating:4 2019-11

    The house was so much bigger than I expected! When we visited there were not many tourist, otherwise the place can easily get a bit to crowded which will make it more difficult to enjoy it. Good place to visit on a cloudy day!

    It's the famous tree house that attracts visitors, but apart from that you visit the Tait house - a merchant house from 1867 with and exhibit of household items from 17th century and museum showing the economic significance of Anping in past centuries. But yes, the tree house is impressive - the banyan tree's roots and branches cover the building of former warehouse. The platforms allow to get to upper level and appreciate the view from another angle. The entrance fee was TWD 50.

    The root of tree are growing from the roof of a old house and across the wall. This tiny roots will grow bigger like a trunk of tree over few hundred years. This is one of the tourist attractions in Tainan.

    Beautiful place to spend our afternoon

    Traveler rating:4 2019-02

    For a small fee of NTD50, it was a good way to spend our afternoon. There was a two-storey building and a musuem inside. The Tree House area was also a nice place for some photos and it was good weather when we were there. The "skywalk" was also nice as it was cool inside the trees area. Got some souvenirs at the shops too!
