Review: Sightseeing Tour Bus in Tainan

Conveniently See Tainan’s Best Attractions

Tainan is the former capital of Taiwan and it’s oldest city. There are many sites to see in Tainan and it can take multiple days to see everything the city has to offer.

Fortunately, there is a sightseeing bus for tourists to see all of the most important locations in Tainan.

Tainan City offers a Double-Decker Sightseeing Tour bus that lets you get on or off at any of the 10 bus stops for a 6 hour tour. This tour lets you see Tainan’s best attractions and offers the most convenient way to visit Tainan’s popular attractions and famous landmarks at your own pace.

The West Loops offers top attractions such as, Tainan Train Station
Fort Provintia, Shennon St., Anping Fisherman’s Wharf, Eternal Golden Castle,Tainan City Hall (Taipung Suites), Siaosimen, and Confucian Temple

The East Loop will take you to Tainan Train Station, Shangri-La’s Far Eastern Plaza Hotel, Barclay Memorial Park, Chimei Happiness Factory

If it is your first time visiting Tainan, then I definitely recommend taking this tour. The driver and tour guides are really friendly and helpful. If you take the bus, you need to keep track of time. Otherwise you will need to wait an hour for the next bus. If you purchase through Klook, you get two extra hours on the Tainan Sightseeing Tour bus and the ticket is $10 NTD cheaper.
