Tainan is Taiwan’s oldest town and the cradle of Taiwanese culture. Most early emigrants to the island passed through the city, some moving on to develop the north, still others choosing to explore the less developed regions that lay to the south. Centuries of cultural nourishment coupled with the area’s lush natural and manmade beauty give Tainan its rich cultural ambiance. Those who live, work and play here … those who have made Tainan home have bequeathed to posterity a stirring, multifaceted portrait of this special corner of Taiwan. Pulled forward through the vicissitudes of history, Tainan’s men and women of literature have painted the past in vibrant, living colors, challenged their present, and gazed hopefully toward the future.
