Taiwan, located in the midst of Northeast and Southeast Asian international trade routes, has been an important traffic and trading spot since the seventeen century. Due to its geographical importance and features, Taiwan was a competitive stronghold for countries involved in the Age of Discovery. Its occupation by the Netherlands, Spain, Koxinga in the Ming Dynasty, the Qing Dynasty and Japan helped Taiwan occupy a large role in the World History.

Tainanfu (in Tainan), Lugang (in Changhua), and Bangkah (in Taipei) were commercial ports and financial centers of Taiwan. These three cities symbolized the prosperous trading histories and witnessed the commercial development of Taiwan in contemporary history. This article investigates records related to the Qing official Shen Bao-zhen, the Hsu family enterprise in Lugang, and the Chen family enterprise Tai-yi hao, guiding readers along a brief journey through these three port cities.
