Sihcao Green Tunnel is a part of Sihcao Wetland which is located within the Taijiang National Park in Tainan, Taiwan. The Sihcao Wetland area used to be salt farms for more than 200 years. With this history, the natural Sihcao Green Tunnel was used as a salt canal to transport salt products from the drying field back to storages. Today, Sihcao Green Tunnel is a popular attraction features educational raft tours around the Green Tunnel. Taijiang National Park is a conservation area for endangered birds; the park has the most diverse plants and animals in the entire Taiwan!
Qigu area used to be the biggest solar salt field in Taiwan. Qigu has a long history of generating salts and has a great contribution to Taiwan’s salt production. You can climb onto the salt mountain which is made up of 60,000 tons of salt. At 20m high above the ground, from the top of the salt mountain provides a good view of the area. It is also at here that you can try out salty ice cream.
