  • Visit paintings of famed Taiwanese painter Hung Tung and learn about his unique style, use of vivid color and influence on modern art

What We Love:

Join this unique tour in and around Beimen District, sighting fascinating landmarks far removed from the usual tourist trail. Begin with a graceful boat ride beneath the arching mangroves of Sicao Green Tunnel, then try a spot of birdwatching for the endangered black-faced spoonbill, only found in a few parts of the world. Next you'll visit the area's most romantic building, Beimen Crystal Church. The modern architecture and romantic atmosphere make this a popular photo shoot location for newlywed couples. Discover the artwork of Hung Tung, a self-taught Taiwanese artist whose colorful abstract style heavily influenced Taiwanese modern art in the 1970s, before coming to the Jingzaijiao salt fields. Tainan used to be Taiwan's most important salt-making area but the flats are now abandoned is favor of cheaper imported salt. A few are maintained for tourism purposes so you can still watch and learn about traditional salt-drying methods.

North Gate Visitor Center perimeter, is designed to place the wedding, also friends hyped, fortunately convenient parking place is big enough; a good place to stop and take pictures for the whole family.

Planning was good, parking place is also fairly easy to find, and some wall art full of a good shot, it is recommended not to hold too high expectations of the visit, or may feel disappointed, but also full of pity is crystal church simply too ! But in fact it is full of beautiful scenery on. Very suitable for family riding outing, young lovers about dating. Hope that I can add some snack vendors! Add some more traditional fashion. I hope the next opportunity and then past the north gate of the church when you can visit the Crystal Crystal Cathedral.

This church is beautiful. The design is stood out. Given the fact that there are not a lot things to see here. You can come to this place and take some good photos since it is the area where taiwanese come to take wedding photos.
