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.
The Ye Wang Koji ceramics in Jhensing Temple in Jiali District are listed as national historical monuments and have significance in terms of history, culture, and art.
Sigang is rich in flax. The Grand Sigang Bridge that stretches over Zengwun River has gained the reputation as being the No.1 bridge in Tainan.

Unfortunately, this museum is not geared towards the non-Chinese speaking tourist. There are limited interps in English on the ground floor, and next to none on the second and third levels. There is a very bizarre UFO...

Never thought I would taste such great coffee so far away from the city. We visited the salt mountain and people from the group recommended us to grab some coffee next to the Hermin Textile Museum. They have top tier coffee machine and many home made desserts. Strongly recommend to other people that come to this area for a short...
