Brought to this place, thought it would be some kind of a big salt mountain and interesting place. Turned out wrong. It is a small mountain and unfortunately we can't go to the top of it. Nevertheless, I am glad they have a souvenir shop on it. I bought some salt products such as soap, face foam, and mask which... More

Just a small mountain and not allow to climb up due to maintenance for the rainy season. It takes time to travel from tai chung. Don’t waste your time.

Taiwanese friends treated me to a brief stop for ice cream at one of the concessions and a hike up the man made steps up the salt "mountain" for photos and a view of the area. The steps are... More

Every things destroyed and the place is very far from the city and should pay high amount of taxi fee. I can say if you want to go there you waste money and time

Should have taken advice from the tainan driver not to waste admission fee and time here. The staff at the ticketing counter should have at least informed visitors or put up signs indicating that the fake salt mountain was under maintenance and not climbable. There was no nice sight or entertainment apart from a bit of lousy shopping.
