Hengchun is on the southern tip of Taiwan and gets its name because it enjoys spring-like weather year-round. The old city was built in 1873 during the Qing dynasty. The city wall, which is the best preserved in Taiwan, is 2.700 meters long with gates.

The old walls in the center of Hengchun sits on the highway to Kenting. Travelers can begin their visit at the West Gate and walk to the Queen of Heaven (Mazu) Temple, the South Gate, and the East Gate, where they can climb to the top for panoramic views of the town. They can also watch flames spewing from the ground beside Chuhuo Bridge.
