Tainan Attractions

Tainan City ─ Qigu Salt Mountain
Located in Qigu District, Tainan, Qigu Salt Mountain is one of the most popular attractions in Tainan. Qigu Salt Mountain is set close to Qigu Lagoon, the largest inland lake in Taiwan, which is rich in ecological resources and the habitat for winter migratory birds-black-faced spoonbills. The area's long history of generating salt and its great contribution of nation’s salt production make it a renowned place for rich mineral substance.

There are 2 salt mountains in Qigu Salt Mountain area, the major mound and north mound. The major mound is comprised of 60,000 tons of salt left over from the Taiwan Salt Corporation’s Qigu Salt Fields, which is about 20 meters-tall. Visitors are offered with great views of other salt fields and surroundings when viewing from the top of the mound.

Other than going up to the top of the salt mountains, visitors may also enjoy salty ice-scream at the onsite salt mart, which is only available in Qigu. In addition, there are a number of recreational features include bumper boats, go-kart, and Doo-doo trains making it an interesting Tainan tourist spot for visitors of all ages.

Located right next to Qigu Salt Mountain, the Taiwan Salt Museum is where visitors will be given some ideas of the history of Taiwan salt industry, the science of salt and the use of salt world-wide. Black-Faced Spoonbill Conservation Area, Ocean View Pavilion, and Qigu Lagoon are other attractions nearby that are worth-seeing for one’s Tainan trip.
