Chigu Salt Mountain, Tainan

(110+ reviews on the web)
Landmark Tourist Spot
If you like amusement parks that aren’t all carousels and ferris wheels, visit Chigu Salt Mountain. The former sea salt storage area was transformed into an attraction where you can climb like you would a regular mountain. The site consists of several tall piles of sea salt, where you can climb the primitive stairs to reach the top and enjoy the distinctive views. You can also watch local artists carving beautiful sculptures out of salt and admire their work. Before you leave, make sure you try the unusual flavor combination of salt ice cream. Our Tainan vacation route planner makes visiting Chigu Salt Mountain and other Tainan attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
