Click here if you would like to read an overview of my 2 weeks vacation in Southern Taiwan.
We were told by everyone about how amazing the food in Tainan is. I think we expected a little too much. We were also quite unlucky in a way that the highly recommended food stores were either closed for the day, sold out, or closed during the timing we were at. Well, we had our fair bit of fun in Tainan.
We took a train from Kaohsiung to Tainan which cost only SGD$3 and takes about an hour.
We stayed at Tainan Station Oldman Captain Hostel 台南車站 老曼船長 青年旅館, recommended by my godbrother. Great location! (located right beside Tainan train station), it used to be the railway office. The owner of the hostel is extremely funny and nice, we had such a great time chatting with him! The cheapest dorm cost about SGD$20 per night.
We spent 3 days in Tainan and what we did mainly was food trail.
Here are some of the food stores that we were recommended:

Overall, Tainan was my least favorite place out of all, but it's still a good place to visit especially if you are interested in Taiwanese History.
