Southwest Coast Tourism Union

Southwest Coast Tourism UnionLOGO
Yunlin, Chiayi and Tainan are collectively known as Yunjianan. They are part of a broader tourism union that includes the "blue highways" that connect ports such as Budai to the offshore islands of Penghu, as well as diverse Alishan and the Tropic of Cancer theme of Chiayi. This area offers a variety of sea and land recreational experiences.
Farms and fisheries are well developed here. Salt pans, wetlands and birds abound, and the land is dotted with award-winning landscape art. Classic small towns, farms and fishing villages provide a "slow" culture of open spaces with a local feel, which is all well suited to in-depth travel. The area's industries yield local experts and interesting products, such as mullet roe, milkfish, white shrimp, clams and gentian grouper – all of the highest quality. The four seasons each provides special attractions. Visitors can enjoy viewing migratory birds, exploring the area's culture, eating local delicacies and shopping for local crafts. Immerse yourself in this land and enjoy a sense of happiness for both mind and body!

This is a national treasure that preserves Taiwan's salt-drying culture and introduces it to visitors from around the world.
