Located in the suburb Zho Chen, this relative new and beautiful temple was setup in 1986 and is the largest Karma Kagyu temple in Taiwan. Karma Kagyu is one of 4 major Tibetan Buddhist sects. The temple grounds are big and the main prayer hall has a 16-meter tall Buddha statue. Wander around the temple grounds and do not just pop into the main...more

Beef soup has always been one of Tainan's famous food, the reason being that fresh beef is delivered straight from the slaughterhouse directly to the restaurants (as opposed to the meat being packaged and kept in a cold storage) in the wee hours of the morning, or so I was told.Ah Chen Fresh Tainan Beef Soup is a small local but popular...more
I've been to the Turkish house twice already, and it's been an excellent experience, which makes it a must visit every time i'm in Tainan (Which will become more frequent as it seems).The place has two floors, as the first floor is fairly small. The atmosphere will be almost Turkish, but the white walls keeps the place somewhat distant, almost...more
For the traveling people, finding a place where it all comes together - ambiance, appearance, service and above all taste - is like striking oil. When this happens in a location where the selection is relatively small (mostly because the local cuisine is far from being my cup of tea), this would be equal to striking oil on the same day of winning...more
I must admit that I don't fancy Chinese food all that much. There are very few dishes that appeal to my taste buds, but for the most part, I find it too flat or too sweet, while I on the other hand like spicy and picante food, so the sea food centered kitchen is not my cup of tea. However, Fu Lou has a huge selection of all sorts of dishes, (allot...more
Very local, very famous, and very delicious!! This restaurant used to be a little food stand in Tainan; however, with growth of customer numbers, it has become a real restaurant which you can hold a banquet. Like all restaurants in this island, being boisterous is one of the most important elements here; students, family and friends gather here to...more

Confucianism, the spirit has deep influcence on Chinese culture. Taiwan reserves the tradition. Due to Confucianism we people traditionally respect teachers (, but time is different, the view changed) and take Confucious' birthday on September 28 as teachers' day. On that day we hold solemn ceremony for celebration in Confucious Temples all around...more
well basically i was wandering near an ping fort and this guy plops a lizard on my shoulder and while i enjoy having lizards on my shoulder out of the blue,
he wanted 50 nt.
I paid him, as I actually like iguanas, and they need to eat too, and iguana owners need food. but try to avoid him if you are wandering near An Ping fort.
Unique Suggestions: hmm. walk across the street from iguana holding taiwanese. have 50nt ready! smile!
Fun Alternatives: actually this was a rather fun trap for me.
its better than getting poisonous snakes dropped on me.
Tai-Nan has many famous & yammy food. I recommend you especially "Dry Eel Yi-Noodles". Yi-Noodles are originally right from Tai-Nan. People make noodles from flour and extra with duck soup. To keep the noodles (protein element canbe easily roten) well, they extra fry them so Yi-Noodles smell and taste different from normal noodles (made with flour...more
