Below describing some of the main roads nearby NCKU. I have based on the snapshot of map from Google, with one road edited its name as “DaXue Road or University Road

  1. NCKU is located in the East District of Tainan County. Sometime also refer as Dong District on print-out maps. The administrative district has the most dense population of 1.35 per 100 m2.
  2. The university covers an approximated area of 1.73 km2, including all 9 resourceful campuses. Naming a few are Kuang-Fu Campus, Cheng-Kung Campus, and Sheng-Li Campus.
  3. School compound has an estimated perimeter outlined by 4 major roads. Namely, 
    • DongFeng Road at North, 
    • QianFeng Road at West, 
    • LinSen Road on the East, and 
    • DaXue Road as the South boundary.
      Note: The latter is officially named as University Road in school academia address.
  4. Apart from the 4 distanced boundaries, there are also 4 cross-section junctions within. 
    • ShengLi Road and ZhangRong Road head in the direction of North-South.
    • University Road and XiaoDong Road take the lead in the East-West direction.
    • These 2 sets of roads, stretch almost parallel to each other, meet at the 4 junctions perpendicularly.
  5. To be more inclusive, my personal opinion is to have DongNing Road at further south of University Road. DongNing Road is not quite define as the outline, albeit student dormitories in Sheng-Li Campusdominates almost half of the area encompassed by
    • DaXue Road,
    • ShengLi Road at west, and 
    • ZhangRong Road at the eastern side.
  6. In north region of the map, traveling by wheels on XiaoDong Road is probably the more accessible way to reach the opposite site of the railway track. The train station located along Section 2, Bei-Men Road. 
    • The route will bring you through an underpass. The traffic along this road can be congested during peak-hours.
    • The Word “Bei” refers to North in Chinese pronunciation; similar to the word Taipei from second syllabus.
    • Tainan Park is located just at the T-junction of these two jointed roads.
  7. Making your first visit to the nearest school compound via Kuang-Fu Campus is almost next to your door step from Tainan Train Station. Use the Rear Exit of the station.
  8. Popular food lane, YuLe Street (read as “Yu-Ler”) is on a minor road nearest to Sheng-Li Campus and Kuang-Fu Campus.
    • For food and eateries, don’t miss out YuLe Street to have your tantalizing taste of Tainan. 
    • Most food stalls selling at student price. Ranging between NT$ 100 to NT$40 and restaurants NT$200-ish.
    • The word “YuLe”refers to ‘Entertainment’, but not referring to the bustling street with KTVs, Clubs, Bristo bar, or Pubs.
  9. More food can be found if you walk along ZhangRong Road.
    • Only difference is that most shops selling cooked-food are loosely situated apart.
    • Continue straight down to south along ZhangRong Road will see a supermarket to buy grocery.
    • Further down, if riding by scooter, is DaDong night market; the closest night market to NCKU.
  10. The university has an easy-to-remember GPS coordinates.
    • Latitude 22.99868°N, and
    • Longitude 120.21688°E.
    • (based on GPS Planner Online).
