Anping Old Street

Anping Fort historically impressive especially this Anping Old Street. The old street is a great place to try the famous oyster omelet. They serve it with a red sauce and it’s a cheap and tasty dish. Much better than expected and compared to a plate of vegetables much better price.

Anping Old Street (安平老街) was the first street in Taiwan to be given a name. More than 300 years ago this was the first street built by the Dutch in Anping. In the early days, the street was built solely for pedestrians and push carts due to the fact that the street was narrow and there was not that much space to navigate. Many tourists coming to Anping must visit this street, and the noisy and bustling environment of Anping Old Street is one of its hallmarks. The street features all kinds of old stalls and shops, and regardless of whether you are a domestic or foreign visitor coming here
