Located in Nanshan District, Nantou Ancient Town, also known as Xin’an Ancient Town, was built in 1394.

It was first built to guard Dongguan and later became a government department location for Xin’an County.

Inside the town, there is Guandi Temple and Dongguan Chamber and Maritime Defense Public Department. Traditional residential houses and temples with styles from the Qing Dynasty can also be seen inside the ancient town.
