Wasn't expecting much when I planned this but the view was spectacular! Walk up the mountain if you can and you will be able to see the beautiful surroundings. Be careful when walking as it can get rather slippery.

We came here in July, very hot. Kids not willing to walk and see. Better to come in autum or winter, so visitors may enjoy and willing to walk around.

The first time I visited 12 years ago, this place was impressive. The salt mountain was white and stood high against the blue sky. Now, it is about 70% of the previous size that I remember, and it is a dirty brown color. Some of...More

Beimen Area II
This part is the more populous and busier district
along the coast in western Tainan. It was one of the
places where the Siraya people, Taiwan’s plains
aborigines called home. Extending from Jiali, Soulangh
Cultural Park is the centre of culture and art in the
area. The exhibitions in the warehouses at the sugar
refinery integrates local culture.
