Later, Zheng Jing planned to Chengtian House as Dongan, Xiding, Ningnan, and Zhenbei Sifang. Our school is located in Tainan Donganfang Cultural Park. . Dong'anfang Cultural Park can be said to be an area where Tainan's Eastern and Western beliefs and cultures coexist. Because of the exchange of Western beliefs and cultures, Dong'anfang Cultural Park presents an inclusive style of Chinese and Western cultures. This time, the Tainan Boai Elementary School's online blog team Chamingzhen project team will take you to find a century-old street, which is an old street built by the Dutch during the Ming Dynasty.

This time our special topic '[Finding Tea]-A Century of Zhenfa Tea Shop' is located on Minquan Road and Qingnian Road.
