This region is renowned for its deep culture and history but also for its beautiful natural scenery, stunning sunsets and awesome food and delicacies. Anping Old Street is lined with traditional rammed earth houses, low brick houses as well as Western mansions, and a myriad of street food, including fried wontons, shrimp rolls and the famed deep-fried sandwich. Visit Guohua Street to sample Taiwanese specialties and local markets. Discover Taiwan’s people and past at The National Museum of History. Chimei Museum includes beautiful gardens and a private collection of art and musical instruments. Anping Fort, the first fortress built by the Dutch in Anping in 1924, is the oldest in Taiwan.
