Vintage Homes in Tainan

Old wooden homes in the oldest of Taiwanese cities.

Tainan 台南 is the most historic major city in all Taiwan 台灣. It might not look so different from the main thoroughfares but the moment you step into what I call “back alley Tainan” you will probably notice something special. The labyrinthine network of laneways and side streets that stretch between the major roads feels like a world out of time, a window into the past. This particular shot was captured somewhere near the western gate of the old city.
