Tainan Ecology Tour

Discover Tainan's culture, wetlands and snacks!

Kaohsiung 57 Booked

Full of fascinating geology, beautiful architecture and romantic nature, not to mention Taiwan's best snacks, this full day tour is sure to show you the best of Tainan

  • Climb atop the 20m salt mountains and look across the salt fields

  • Visit the Black-faced Spoonbill Reserve and bird-watch this near extinct bird (Sep-Mar)

  • Explore the French-designed Eternal Golden Castle, originally built as a fortification against the Japanese

  • Browse the small street stalls for Taiwan's tastiest snacks

  • Glide by boat through mangrove forests creating a romantic green tunnel

  • Inclusive of comfortable coach transportation including hotel pick up and drop off

What We Love:

Beginning at the Qigu Salt Mountains, where thousands of tons of salt have piled up to 20 meters high, you can actually climb atop to enjoy fantastic views of the now disused salt fields and surrounds. Visit the black-faced spoonbills at Qigu Lagoon and watch these near-extinct birds wade into the water, sweeping their beaks side-to-side to catch prey. There are sadly only 2,700 of these beautiful white and black birds left in the world, and Taiwan is one of the best places to spot them. A visit to the culinary capital of Taiwan wouldn't be complete without tasting some Tainan snacks from the network of street vendors before heading to the Eternal Golden Castle. This 1876 fortification was created from red bricks and has a decidedly European feel to it. End with a blissful mangrove boat ride where a canopy of green hangs above as you glide through. It's nature at it's finest.

It is quite interesting if you are into military defense strategy. They managed to conserved some cannons from that time. It is small like everything in Anping, but meaningful.


Next to the salt museum is this salt mountain. Though the place is no longer producing salt, but it is a nice place to see the history of salt production, sculpture made by salt, and the salt mountain.


A well maintained historic spot. Being the first western style fort in Taiwan, the Eternal Golden Castle was built to resist the Japanese troops who invaded Taiwan in 1874. It was a progress toward modernization of Taiwanese coastguard military defense. To me, it is much better than the An-ping Fort (a fake historic architectural built during the period of Japanese occupation) and the Chih-kan Tower (reconstructed historic spot, it has not been the original Fort Provintia). Though not a place of fun, It is a good place of historic interest, nostalgia,…… and meditation.
