South of Tainan County as well as south of Jianan Plain, Yongkang is a town of flat farmland with a slightly protruding table-land at its southwest side. This table land, named as Tainan Terrace, is around 30 meters above the sea level and slops to the surrounding areas. The east around Sinshih Village is the edge of Sinhua Barrows protruding above ground 10 to 50 meters. The center of this township is the Dawan Lowland, marking 5 meters above sea level. Yongkang borders Sinhua at east, looking out to Sinshih and Annan District of Tainan City at north and northwest, divided by the north district of Tainan City at southwest, and links to the east district of Tainan City, Rende Township, and Gueiren Township at south. With its convenient transportation network and location, Yongkang is the most populated township of all municipalities of Tainan City.

 The History
Yongkang was a settlement point along the Singang Creek (today’s Yanshuei Creek) developed by the Hans in the Zheng Cheng-Gong Era. The Hans traced upstream of the Taijiang Inland Sea and settled at the south bank of the creek. Yongkang was right at the pivot point northbound to and from the administration center of the Prefecture (today’s Tainan City). Yongkang was known as the Pu Chiang Tou at earlier times. In the end of Ming Dynasty (early Qing Dynasty), Japan was in the war era; during which, a massive amount of deer skin was needed to make soldiers’ armors. Taiwan was a source of supply. The Hans traded rice, salt, and other necessities with the aborigines for deer. The skins were exported to Japan and the meat was made into jerky and sold to China. In southern Min language, Pu means flat land, Chiang is a type of small deer, and Tou (Head) means a cape of seashore or riverside where deer flock.
