Highlights

It's in the middle of Shuitou Village, which has many other attractions within walking distance, including Jinshui Elementary School Museum and the Overseas Chinese Culture Museum.

Free guided tours (in Mandarin Chinese) are offered every day.

Deyue Tower is on the list of Taiwan's Top 100 Historical Buildings.

Introduction

In the early 1900s, Shuitou Village was prosperous from the trading business. Being close to the sea, it was a relatively easy target for pirates. So the villagers decided they needed to ward them off. In 1931, a Fujianese architect was commissioned to build this distinctive defensive tower.

Special defensive features include holes in the walls on the 3rd and 4th floors just big enough for guns to aim at invaders. There's also a secret emergency escape path between the tower and the house next door.
