Tainan, Taiwans oldest city.

Mit einem Nachmittagsbus von Alishan runter nach Chiayi und von dort noch eine kurze Zugfahrt bis nach Tainan, Taiwans älteste Stadt. In unserem Hotel wurden wir nicht nur von der Dame an der Rezeption, sondern auch vom hoteleigenen Hahn begrüßt, der dort Haustier und Maskottchen zugleich ist.

We took an afternoon bus from Alishan down to Chiayi and from there a short train ride to Taiwans oldest city Tainan. At our hotel we got a welcome not only from the woman at the reception, but also from a hotel owned rooster what´s the hotels pet and mascot.

A rooster on the leash, a living hotel mascot, Taiwan can be sometimes a bit strange.

Die folgenden zwei Tage streiften wir durch Anpings Altstadt inklusive Anping Treehouse, besuchten den Grand Matsu Temple, gönnten uns ein Abendessen und kosteten Eierwaffelkreationen in der Shennong Street, gustierten im Hayashi Departmentstore, aßen köstliche Seitanburger an einem Straßenstand, nahmen die 182 Art Space Gallery unter die Lupe und machten einen kleinen Ausflug mit dem Zug zum Ten Drum Rende Creative Village.
