Sinshih Township
 
 

What you must know

 The Place

South of Tainan County, Sinshih borders Shanshang and Sinhua at east, Anding at west, Shanhua at north, and Yongkang at south. It is easily accessible by rail as well as highways. The oval shape municipality is part of the Jianan Plain. It was originally a farming village, but as industrial development took off, factories began to rise. It is a place highly potential for urban development and that is why it was chosen as the site for Tainan Science Park.

 The History
It has been said that this place was a place of nowhere on the route of commercial logistic from Yujing, Shijiqi, Shanshang, Shangjhuang, Baigualiao, Shijaijing, and Sinjhuang. The porters often had to rest in this area but found nowhere for refreshments. Therefore, the porters encouraged the villagers to go into the refreshment business serving the passerby porters. Over a period, a few scattered stalls developed into a small market, so people began to call it the new market – Sinshi. According to history, this place was called the Sincan Tribe; pioneers of Hans renamed it as the Singang Village, and in the Japanese era, it was called the Sinshi Village. This township was a typical farming village, but in recent years, manufacturers began to set up plants along the No. 1 Provincial Expressway and commercial and manufacture activities began to enter this area. In 1995, Tainan Science Park decided to come to Sinshi; this Township became a highly potential city of high technology.
