I'm so confused because after enabling anonymous access in central administration panel on SharePoint 2010, I can't see the Anonymous access in the Site Setting -> Site Permissions

Any idea?

I would imagine you did not set the anonymous access policy in Central Admin. This seems to be a commonly forgot step in enabling anonymous access.

If you look at the article provided by saumlin you will see that step described in steps 5 and 6.
