About the Author
I’ve been living and working in Taiwan since August of 2007, and have been living in Tainan since November of 2008. It only took one visit from Taipei to know that this was where I wanted to live. While I don’t claim to be an authority on the city of Tainan, I thought I would share my explorations with those interested in what goes on here.
For more information, I have a personal website link. Otherwise, I can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org
About This Site
This blog is a one-man operation done during my spare time. I have no editors or fact-checkers. While I try to make sure my information is correct, I only have so much time to dedicate towards research. Sometimes information about Tainan available in English is inconsistent and sparse if it’s available at all. I do my best to sort through the Chinglish and inconsistencies, but that’s all I can do. If you note any incorrect information, please bring it to my attention.
In regards to names of places and streets, I have flip-flopped around on various spellings, but have decided to generally stick with hanyu pinyin spellings. I made my final decision when Google Maps changed to pinyin. However, this is not consistent with the actual street signs in Tainan, which mostly uses tongyong pinyin, which is a romanization system that is quite particular to Taiwan (and these days only southern Taiwan). I apologize if there are any problems due to this inconsistency, but I have to choose one or the other and typing both all the time gets messy.
My opinions, especially regarding restaurants, are just that. There is no accounting for taste.
