History

The Five Harbors Cultural Park is located at the south of Chenggong Road and at the west of Sinmei Street, extending to the south of Jhongjheng Road. It was a channel formed by the Tai River. Different from the Chihkan Cultural Park’s heritage from the Dutch era, the Five Harbors prospered during the reign of emperors like Tongjheng, Cianlong, Jiacing during the Qing Dynasty. In the age of marine dominance, the port area was where business opportunities were. The Beishih Street (Shennong Street) was famous because it was located north of Nanshih Port and south of Fotou Port and can be reached directly from the Shueisian Temple.

Feature

The construction of an underground area beneath the Haian Road was unfortunate. Many residential houses were damaged, as well as the business opportunities along the street. However, this event came with an unexpected blessing. When Haian Road was reopened to public, those crumbling old houses became the best canvas for groups of creative artists. Graffiti and artwork gradually appeared along the street and many unique stores, eateries and pubs were established along the hundreds of meters of Haian Road, making it a night time must-see attraction. Be it day or night, if you are tired, be sure to visit Haian Road for a relaxing time.
