2019 TAIWAN - A street with stores in Tainan

Tainan, the oldest city in Taiwan and also commonly known as the "Capital City" for its over 200 years of history as the capital of Taiwan under Koxinga and later Qing dynasty rule, is also the one of the larger metropolitan areas in Taiwan. Therefore it has many department stores, shopping malls and prestigious boutiques. It is famous for its night markets, that operate in urban or suburban areas, and are similar to those in areas inhabited by ethnic Han.
