Yanshui Qiaonan Old Street(鹽水橋南老街)

Traveler rating:4.5 47 Reviews 4.5




Walking into Qiaonan Old Street (橋南老街), tourists will be met with the familiar sounds of the Quanli Blacksmith Shop (泉利打鐵舖), a sound that has rung out consistently for over a century. Once the main street in Yanshui(鹽水) and a gathering place for merchants, Qiaonan Old Street gradually declined after the Yuejin Harbor (月津港) silted up, and the clamor of the bustling port is no longer heard. All that remains to tell the story of Qiaonan is a row of old buildings; tourists can search for hidden treasures in the Qiaonan Historical Relic Store (橋南歷史文物館), or sit and reminisce in the Qiaonan Coffee House (橋南咖啡屋). In the Old Street's early days, people would come from far and wide to visit the Beidi Temple (北帝殿) and make offerings to Xuan Tian Shang Di (玄天上帝), the Dark Warrior God, and the Temple still attracts many worshippers to this day. Tourists may explore the surrounding area, and eat their fill at a range of eateries serving local delicacies such as Yanshui noodles, pork rice, and bean strip soup. After the meal, having a red bean milk ice or watermelon lemonade at the Yin Feng Ice and Fruit Shop (銀鋒冰菓室) would make the perfect dessert.

    Chinese New Year activity, seeing lantern festival here. Lantern design is creative and colorful, especially seeing in the night. The reflective light and color on the canal is awesome.

    相約 我們在此相遇 Rendezvous at the Yuejin yue jin habor at Yanshui, Tainan

    Traveler rating:5 2018-01

    The Yuejin lantern festival is fantastic! You definately can't miss it! 2018月津港燈節以「相約」為題」,將人與人的相會轉化為點與點的連結,金色圓點象徵著夜晚的明月,銀色圓點則是水面上的月光倒影,流動的線段意表月津港蜿蜒的河道與串連的燈火,同時也代表著人們期待相會的心思意念。 讓美麗的不期而遇成為情深意重的長久約定,藉由光的浪漫,喚起人對於約定的執著。
