Visit the Beautiful Lin An Tai Ancestral House

An exquisite and very well maintained house and gardens found in the northern part of the city, the Lin An Tai Ancestral House dates back to around 1785, making it one of the oldest buildings in Taiwan.

There are five buildings within the grounds, and you’re free to explore inside the houses (although there was a wedding reception during my visit so I never got to see inside). A useful English guide to the buildings can be found here.

The beautiful landscaped gardens and pond look stunning, and there are walkways and pavilions to explore.

Although Lin An Tai Ancestral House’s location is quite a walk from the closest MRT, there are a few other attractions nearby, and it’s worth seeing this as part of a walk I’ve devised.

  • Free to enter


  • 20 minutes from the closest MRT station
