I was happy to stumble upon Duìyuèmén 兌悅門, one of several remaining Qing dynasty era gates in Tainan 台南. Built in 1835, it now opens onto a small plaza and Fat Cat Deli (visible through the archway), another hip cafe in Tainan City 台南市. I recognized it on sight, having read about it in the excellent Tainan city guide. Tainan 台南 is filled with cool little surprises like this. It might not be the most remarkable place but it’s rather cool that this little gate is still in use. Stay long enough and you’ll see locals zipping through the portal on scooter, somewhat unlike scenes from a century ago, but still quite charming.
