One Day Accessible Tour in Tainan, the salt industry

Culture & HeritageAccessible travel


The "Beimen Vistor Center" has many touristic attractions. The "Crystal Church" is now its landmark and the hottest check-in place with its European style architecture and painted walls. The "Jingzaijiao Tile-paved Salt Fields" is essentially derived from this particular landscape formation. To prevent salt crystals from attaching to the soil, salt miners at Pottery Dish Salt Field manually laid out broken debris of pottery onto the crystallizing ponds of salt fields. This approach resulted in purer and clearer salt being mined. Under the sunshine, the Pottery Salt Pan displays a resplendent, mosaic like pattern. These features make it a unique cultural landscape of the homeland of salt. Today, it has become an excellent site for tourists to experience salt drying. The "Taiwan Salt Museum" is where you can also learn what the salt industry is like around the world by visiting the "Salt Mine in Poland" and the "Well-Salt in Sichuan" exhibits. You can also purchase salt products here.
