Taiwan -day 3- Tainan

Continued from Taiwan -day 2- Taipei/Tainan.

Breakfast is included in the fare. It was buffet, but we expected meals afterward and we took the breakfast a little.

This is a traditional rice cracker store, Lián de táng bĭng jiā. All are hand-made and the supply is limited. You can buy only two packs.

Then we visited several sightseeing spots.

The first one is Chīkănlóu, or Chihkan Tower. It was a fortress built buy Dutch in 17 century, and Zhèng Chénggōng renovated his castle after he won the war.
