Taiwan Trip 2015 - Day 2 - Tainan - Anping Town - Anping Old Fort (Fort Zeelandia)
After alighting from the bus, walked towards the post office which is next to the bus stop, the fort is just behind the bus stop and the post office. The post boxes right infront of the post office. Fort Zeelandia was a fortress built over ten years from 1624 to 1634 by the Dutch East India Company (VOC), in the town of Anping (Tainan) on the island of Formosa (present-day Taiwan), during their 38-year rule over the western part of that island. Although the site was previously named Orange City (奧倫治城), Anping City (安平城), and Taiwan City (台灣城), the current name of the site in Chinese is Anping Fort (安平古堡).
