Our slogan at Your Fun Apartment is “A Playground for Living, Fun, and Design.” It is also our first inspiration. Tainan is a comfortable place to live. Therefore, we chose to build our guest house here and began to understand and experience what life is like in Tainan.
We refer to ourselves as “the Apartment”, so that visitors can feel they are staying in a homely environment, and our guests here can feel free and relaxed. They can go upstairs and downstairs. They can go to the open space on the first or second floor for chatting, reading, or listening to music. Stories and TV show screenings occur here, too. Sometimes, it reminds us of the scenes and atmosphere of the French film “The Spanish Apartment.”
Taiwanese Old House with French Elegance French people and Tainan people have something in common: both are proud of their own culture and history, and they live at a slow but comfortable speed. This is the life we want to live, and a life that we are learning to live now. This is why we chose to mix Taiwanese and French styles and themes together in a traditional style Tainan house.
Your Fun Apartment would like to present its customers with neither the luxurious decorations of the Louis XIV era, nor the grandness of Napoleon III’s Opéra de Paris. We don’t want to only present you with an image of a French village, with its printing patterns and ceramic cups and plates. We also appreciate the stylish, easygoing and sturdy features of contemporary French home decoration style. We also incorporate the popular loft style of New York apartments, as well as the European retro look of the 1960s. The French also admire oriental elements, and we often see their skillful mix of oriental and western cultures combined with a French atmosphere.
We selected a typical Taiwanese old house with many old Taiwanese elements, and we are really fond of French home decoration style. This is the idea that inspires us to make the transformation, by using a traditional Taiwanese house as the subject decorated in a French style.
Tainan Old House Inn is like a hidden gem inside the rustic maze of the old market. To find it on your own would be nearly impossible. You head past the decades-old food stalls and textile shops, and then through a small door and up a ladder-steep staircase to the second floor living space.
The Old House Inn is not so much an inn, but a nightly house rental. It is a five story shop-house in the middle of old Ximen Market, and the second through fifth floor are fully yours during your stay. There is a living space and library on the second floor, a large dining area, kitchen, and veranda on the third floor, a bedroom on the fourth floor, and a bathroom that takes up the entire fifth floor. The house has been cleaned up and renovated to include some modern fixtures, but great care was done to preserve the character of the house. Old master craftsmen were hired to ensure authenticity of construction.
Staying in hotels can be a merely serviceable experience, or it can be an experience in itself. If you’re coming to Tainan, ask yourself this, “Do I want a standard experience, or do I want a unique experience that gives me a real sense of local culture?”
The Old House Inn has preserved a bit of local history and given people a chance to experience local life on their visit to Tainan.
A trip in Old West Market
It’s so hot in Tainan, is it suitable to wear suits?
“Since we have the material with cooler technology, people from 30 or 40 years ago would come here once a month to order trousers. They usually order 3 pairs of trousers or more, since once the materials wear off, they wouldn’t wear it anymore. Moreover, they would wear the trousers when they go on a trip, go back to the hometown, or whenever there’s a chance to take photos, they all wear suits.” said the tailor in Tainan, explaining the details of Tainanese suit customized history.

Farewell to Single life proposal
With this guide, we will introduce you to the worship of the notable Yue Lao in Tainan. Participants in this event will know the basic knowledge of Yue Lao, offerings, and secret tips. We guarantee you that after this introduction, you will be able to find your partner!
FRAU magazine, in Japan, have made a special column on Yue Lao years ago.
I introduced Aoki Yuka, two editors, journalists and most importantly, a photographer in Tainan to Yue Lao. The photographer did not have a girlfriend for a long time, because of his bad habits, such as not taking showers, not doing laundry, being messy and so on. In general however, he is a nice guy. Yet, he is certainly not “ideal” in Japan, thus we taught him some “secret tips” from the temple! I took a photo of the Japanese photographer, it showed that the flush on his face is the colour of destiny. He said himself that the Tainanese Yue Lao is incredible! I met Aoki later then, she said this photographer got a girlfriend after he returned to Japan, and he’s getting married this year! He kept saying that Yue Lao is so awesome! His current girlfriend is a model in Japan. So come and worship Yue Lao in Tainan!
He sent me his marriage certificate!
