The Anping Tree House is an old abandoned warehouse used in WW2 and is now overtaken with banyan trees. It is incredible how nature can over take something so completely. We had a great time exploring it. The cost to enter was less and $2USD.

I took around 45min of bus from Tainan train station to tree house. I reached here around 4.30pm and they close around 1800. You can check their opening hour/last entry time so that you can have more time spent inside tree house. Ticket is NT50/person (if not mistaken). If for your first visit then I would say yes, but for... More

Four of us visited this old building on 12 Mar (Sunday). Not very crowded, and is a nice place to take photos with the trees integrating with some old houses. Entrance fee NT$50 per person.

Honestly, I thought it would be like a jungle house. But the surrounding is quite industrial, in the run-down, seen better days kinda sense. The tree house itself is interesting if you haven't been to a rain forest. The vicinity is active with souvenir shops, local food shops, quite fun to walk around

The 'tree house' is a large somewhat ruined empty building overtaken by banyan trees, Angkor Wat-style. The modest entrance fee also includes an interesting historical museum in an old merchant house

The old abandoned warehouse is fused with banyans so you feel you are in the tree when you in the warehouse. Never seen this before. It is really peaceful and good place to enjoy nature. It is also short walking distance from Anping Old street. It is good for a half-day or one-day trip planning.

Good simple exhibition to display the beginnings of Tainan to visitors. Its proximity to the Anping area also makes it easy for visitors to drop in. Interesting to walk around the tree house but I wish more signs around the walk could be displayed for more information about go the tree house came to be and what sort of restoration... More

I was expecting just another historical site but this made it to one of the most memorable place for this trip. I arrived just as the free guided tour was starting. The guide was not just knowledgeable, he definitely love his town. We learnt interesting history and tickled by his dry humour. He saved the best to the end when... More

A great example of the revitalization of a once deserted old warehouse, now permeating with youthful vigor and laughter. Perfect for an aimless stroll in an autumn (or winter since Tainan is almost never cold) afternoon!

Staying in Anping District/ Annan District

Neighbourhood Profile
Anping District/ Annan District
Anping District is the area first developed in Taiwan. It is also the key to Taiwan’s involvement in the international community. The two famous historic monuments, Anping Fort (a.k.a. Fort Zeelandia) and Eternal Golden Castle leave behind them the traces of international trade made by various countries. Another historic monument that stands the test of time is Tree House, in which beautiful stories were created along with the running water in the canal in the course of history. The National Museum of Taiwan History in the form of green building stands in Annan District. Next to the coastal Cihcao Dajhong Temple is the amazingly gorgeous green tunnel formed by mangroves. Moving slowly in the river course on a pipe raft, you will be greeted by hermit crabs and mudskippers. The sunlight glitters in the woods. This will be like a tranquil journey in the no-man Amazon. What comes next is Luermen River estuary. People can enjoy the beautiful sunset in the Natural Defence of the Capital and also visit the one and only temple which has two barefooted door gods of foreign descent, guarding General Jheng Chengkong, making the trip to Tainan full of stories and mysteries.
