proof of times...just outside of the old street, there is this guy costume up as monkey god.. and my kids love him so much.. he doesn't request any payment, i just gave him NT100 as gratuity... there is couple more small stall along the walking path... you can feel is very old town setting ... even though this is a Fort, but is feel like guarded park .. because there isn't any line to queue or next spot to go on.. it just a wide space every visitor can roam around freely, climb the fort area and snap photos... no rush... aint like some places you need to have nerve of steel to line up waiting for your turn to snap that "instagram" photo... Is pure leisure for us to visit this park... but just beware... is an old fort.. and just like all fort, there will be no cover ... so use your own sun block or bring your own umbrella during a sunny day.... there is toilet , a small cafe booth and a postal box so you can write back a postcard to yourself from there......
Old sign of short Dutch ruleThe fort formerly known as Fort Zeelandia, was built in 1634 by the Dutch during their rule on island of Formosa. The Dutch were defeated by Koxinga and surrendered the fort in 1662 what is officially considered the end of their colonial rule which lasted 38 years. The fort itself is divided into outer and inner fort, including watch tower. It was built from bricks imported from Java and was armed with cannons. The walls were quite thick and it's easily visible on the fort's grounds. There's a small museum inside the fort providing historical background. The entrance to the complex costs TWD 50. English guide service is available on Sundays 1-4 pm.

Interesting Cross-section of Taiwanese HistoryThis fort, which was begun in the Dutch colonial era, and called Fort Zeelandia, was later captured by the Chinese and renamed Anping Fort. The fort was in use up until the 1970’s but since then has been given over to tourism. The old wall still exists, which is fascinating because it was constructed of bricks made in Indonesia, then built with mortar made from sugar cane, sticky rice and oyster shells. There is an on-site archaeological display and some ancient looking Chinese cannons.
