Tainan City ─ Anping Tree House
Anping Tree House-
Located next to the Old Tait & Co Merchant House (Old De-Ji Merchant House) in Anping District of Tainan City, Taiwan, Anping Tree House used to be a warehouse of Tait & Co, one of the top five trading companies in Anping area during the period of Japanese colonization.

Abandoned for many years, a gigantic banyan tree has taken over the warehouse in various ways, including its aerial roots and trunks that have became part of the architecture. The brick walls of the warehouse have faded and collapsed which allowed roots and trunks to take over walls, windows, doors and ground forming an extraordinary scene.

According to Taiwan’s folklore, banyan aerial roots convey negative energies that kept the local residents away from the warehouse as they believed the strong negative energies would bring misfortune. The Anping Tree House was once known as the “Haunted House” for many years until it was officially opened to public in 2004 as a project of the National Anping Harbor Historic Park. Visitors may also find a display centre for the history of the tree house and the ecological environment of the area. Today, Anping Tree House is a popular Tainan attraction that allures many local and oversea visitors for its mysterious, extraordinary appearance during their Tainan travel.
