Sunset Platform(觀夕平台)

Traveler rating:3.5 35 Reviews

Tuesday:Open 24 hours a day





Sunset Platform (觀夕平台), located in Anping Harbor National Historical Park (安平港國家歷史風景區), has become a popular scenic spot in recent years. The triangular platform, protected on two sides by trees, creates a lush green scene, and in front of the platform is the beautiful blue ocean view. In the afternoon, it is common to see families bring their children to play with sand and fly kites on the beach, or two to three friends roll up their trousers and paddle through the waves along the shore, but sunset is when the most people come to stand on the platform. Sunset Platform's low light source design makes it not only good for viewing the sea in the daytime, the low light pollution also allows the glittering stars to be seen at night, making this a popular location whenever a meteor shower is forecast.

    Delightful walks along the canal (when it's not too hot)

    Traveler rating:4 2019-04

    I think this would be best done closer to the evening when the lights come up and the heat goes down. We walked part of it in the mid afternoon and had to quit. I could see it was a pleasant area to walk. Tip: both sides of the canal have a walkway with a few bridges where you can cross back & forth as you like. Bus stops are adjacent to the bridge entrances.

    Nice walkway

    This is a canal which was cleaned up by the government to promote a clean and healthy living environment. There are parks and pedestrians walkways on both sides of the canal. Many food shops are also located along the banks here due to the increasing residents and visitors.

    Nice walk and a few surprises

    Traveler rating:4 2018-10

    So I wanted to check out the canal. I was walking and so I continued to walk. When I first got to the canal I lifted my camera to get a picture of one of the bridges, alllll of them are different there are no two bridges that are alike which was nifty, but I got an even bigger surprise. After I took my photo I heard a splash. And to my surprise there are JUMPING fish! It was amazing! I spent quite a few minutes just taking pictures of the bridges trying to get a jumping fish with it! I had a great time as I wandered down towards the Fort.

    Nice and quiet for sunsets

    To get a beautiful and calm view in Tainan, this is a nice area to shoot photography for sunsets and evening reflections in the water. It is a peaceful walk, as well.

    Away from the crowds a beautiful and relaxing walk under trees along the canal.

    Traveler rating:4 2016-04

    I was in Anping a week ago in April and took a SOLO stroll along the canal away from the crowds. There was quite a lot to see and do along the way when walking from Anping Road side and starting from the blue bridge towards the other two bridges. Lovely sightseeing and quiet. I was lucky to find a jazz band playing for nobody at the blue bridge next to the canal. I took a video of them standing on the bridge. It was really nice to walk along the canal every time I needed exercise and relaxation. I crossed the white bridge (the middle one) and had some snacks at the 7-11 on the other side. There are many restaurants and big shopping stores when crossing the bridge to the other side of the canal away from Anping touristy area. Trees all along the way next to the canal in Anping Road. Finding accommodation online along the canal would be very quiet and relaxing. PERFECT.
