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.

Where to stay in Tainan

The long established city of Tainan offers plentiful accommodations for the range of visitors it receives each year. Primarily located to the west of the main train station, hotels range from the luxurious to the basic, and everywhere in between. Overlooking green areas or the canals, the most glamorous among the options here come in old and new buildings, while the more budget-friendly--including youth hostels, guesthouses, and simple hotels--occupy side streets close to the main transport hubs and historic buildings.
