Xinhua Old Street was a bustling commercial area during the Japanese occupation period. Baroque-style buildings remain from that time, with their elaborate decorative touches. Several decades-old shops are also in the area, adding to the yesteryear charm. The Yang-Kuei Literature Memorial Museum is a highly interesting stop, with extensive exhibits introducing the anti-Japanese-occupation scholar Yang Kui.
With its lush forests and picturesque lake, the Hutoupi Scenic Area well deserves its place among Taiwan's top-12 scenic sites. Visitors can tour the lake on a solar-powered boat or walk from shore to shore across the landmark Hupi Suspension Bridge. For a view of the local plant life, head to the mountainside Dakeng Leisure Farm. Here, visitors can enjoy a rustic family vacation, with cabins for overnight stays and children's play areas. The farm is also known for its cuisine, made with locally grown bamboo shoots, grain-raised miniature pigs, and other farm-fresh ingredients.
Opened in 1981, the Cailiao Fossil Museum in Zuozhen houses an extensive collection of fossils and shells presenting a geological record of the terrestrial and marine species that once inhabited this area. The Tibetan Buddhist Karma Kagyu Monastery is also located in Tainan City. This architecturally impressive monastery is a popular retreat situated in the tranquility of nature. For a view of the geological wonders of Tainan, you may want to visit Caoshan Moon World. The terrain here is formed of slate-gray mudstone; the highly alkaline soil here is non-arable, leaving a barren otherworldly expanse that gives this spot its name.
