Sio House (Salt Museum), Tainan
(3.1/5 based on 50+ reviews on the web)
The century-old building of Sio House (Salt Museum) offers visitors a bit of cultural history and some cleverly designed salt-based exhibits and activities. Once used for storage, selling, and inspection of salt, the site now provides a spot to get some souvenirs for yourself or your loved ones. It displays salt in 365 different colors, one for each day of the year, with a short blessing tagged on it. Don't miss the wishing tree, where couples write down their blessings and tie them to it. If you're traveling with kids, check out the sandpit near the car park. Put Sio House (Salt Museum) on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Tainan vacation builder.

  • One of the purpose of your visit to the Tainan was here. Built in the architectural style of Japan remains the building. That salt production, variety of salt-related goods, 365 colored salt is a sight to see. Good ice cream melt away because of the heat. But is Anping Fort in near excellent.

  • 夕遊出張所觀看介紹就可以直接列在台南旅遊景點之一,一進入就會看到日式老建築、掛滿許願卡的大樹與滿是拍照的人潮,參觀裡面所販售的紀念品,最吸引人的目光除了翠玉白菜與雪鹽燒之外,最壯觀的就是366色的彩鹽,不過紀念品有點小貴。

  • Lots of salt? Not big, just a house. Could stop by to have a quick look.
  • Might be fun for a kid to play with the colorful salt egg
  • 很美 還可以玩沙
  • 來看看還不錯
  • It's just a shop. Though the building is quite special.
