One of Taiwan's best-preserved historical towns, Hengchun Old Town retains its original city gates and ramparts. Stroll along parts of the original 2,500 m (8,202 ft) long, 13 m (42 ft) high city wall that once completely surrounded the city. When passing through, make sure to visit each of the gates and take in views over the entire city from the watchtowers above. Throngs of tourists give the old quarter a distinct buzz, which carries over in its vibrant nightlife and pristine beaches. A visit to Hengchun Old Town represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Hengchun road trip planner to plot your vacation.

  • The city walls are well preserved and have been nicely restored. It is historic as it is from the Qing dynasty. It is not a very big area but worth a quick stop and a few pictures.  more »
  • There are remnants of the old Hengchun Town but you don’t really get the atmosphere of an old town (unlike Takayama in Japan); there are many nice food outlets and cafe though.  more »
