Where to Stay in Tainan- 3 Door Hotel Review

Where to stay in Tainan 3 Door Hotel 三道門建築文創旅館

Continue my previous post of Taipei. Let’s move to Tainan- South of Taiwan. Since it’s my first time visited Tainan due to my business trip. Otherwise I guess I might not even think of visiting this place as it won’t be my bucket list. Not saying this is not an interesting place but not a hot travel location.

So before introducing the hotel I stayed, just a bit intro. of Tainan as I think not everyone have been to this place. It’s situated the South of Taiwan – Tai (Taiwan short term) and Nan ( means South) not a super hot travel spot for tourist but still have it’s attractiveness. Tainan is the oldest city of Taiwan. When I first arrived, I felt it looks totally different from Taipei. It’s more like an old city, everything looks so vintage or I can say it’s like back to the 80s/70s. (I’m not exaggerate but true). You will know what I mean when I showed you the below pictures. However I doesn’t mean I don’t like this city, but it’s much different compare with Taipei or Taichung however it’s also interesting to visit such an ‘old city’ / country side within a region.

Due to my last business trip, I visited Tainan last week. As usual, I would not miss any opportunity to look for some interesting spot while I was away from home. Narrow Door Cafe is one of the Cafe where I marked on my must go list.

The name of the Cafe is already interesting enough for me to visit them. If you have ever been to Taiwan, you might find Tainan is quite different from Taipei. There aren’t any tall buildings but small stores and alley. If I need to use only a word to describe Tainan, Old city would suits the best. A little background of the Narrow Door cafe, it was originally owned by a doctor during the Japanese occupation era, then it has been taken over by the owner of Narrow door cafe in 1999. Thus the cafe looks so rustic and have retain what it had since constructed.
