The old fort is almost completely gonenping Old Fort was built in 1632 by Dutch, to safeguard the entrance to Tainan seaport. It was originally named as Fort Zeelandia. The fort was taken by Koxinga in 1662, and renamed it as AnPing. The fort was completely abandoned under the ruling Qing Dynasty. The complex we can see today is built after World War 2. The remnant of the original fort built by Dutch- a wall located around 50 meters behind the entrance, and an barricaded old well. The white tower which we can see in the tourism leaflets and websites is standing on the foundation of old fort. It was built after World War 2. There is a souvenir shop and information center beside the tower. There are so many stories to tell on the site, but yet so few have been conserved. Anyway, it is still a must visit site in Tainan.

Important historical site worth visitingAnping Old Fort offers a very interesting glimpse into the Dutch period when the fortification was called Fort Zeelandia. Interestingly, the tower was built in 1945 by the Japanese just before their defeat in WWII. The surrounding neighborhood is also wonderful to wander around -- with lots of shops, restaurants, live music and temples to explore.

Historical fortGreat introduction to how the Dutch ‘ruled’ the Taiwan peninsula and how the revolutionist took back over. It’s not a big area, it has a little air-coned museum and a lookout platform overseeing the area. You can also buy a pass for Twd 150 visiting 5 old historical places.
Anping Old PortThis place has so much history and story to tell. Sadly most parts of the old port reconstructed. But it is still worthy to visit and take a rest. Personally, I learn a lot about the history of Taiwan.
