One day in Tainan

Tainan literally means “Taiwan – South” and is, as you might already have guessed, in the south of Taiwan. It is one of the more famous cities and a good place to spend a day or two in. Due to intense study period I didn’t have much time to research before the trip, the most of our planning was done when we were already in the train from Hsingchu.

We started of with renting a locker to store our luggage in. They had a lot on the train station and it was very convenient. They also had a free shuttle bus taking us to downtown Tainan and then we decided to simply walk from there.

The luggage locker costed 50 NTD every three hours.

A lunch that was more interesting than tasty : steamed rice with soft-cooked peanuts and a sweet sour sauce. I think it would have been better of without the sauce.

It took us quite some time to get to the touristy area we intended to reach. But while walking we had a chance to make little stops, talk with local fishermen, peak into a grand church and take lots of photos.

This is one of many Tainan delicacies: the Taiwanese Macaron. The taste and feeling resembles a French Macaron but it is much bigger and empty inside.
