Sio House(夕遊出張所)

Traveler rating:3.5 131 Reviews

Wednesday:10:00 – 18:00





Sio House (夕遊出張所) is located behind the Yanshen White Beach Park (鹽神白沙灘公園), and covers approximately 330 m2. During the Japanese Colonial Era, it served as the Anping Office, Tainan Branch, Governor General of Taiwan Monopoly Bureau (臺灣總督府專賣局台南支局安平分室), an important base during this period of prosperity for the salt industry. Soon after Retrocession, the office was converted into a dormitory, providing lodging for the family of salt industry managers. It is currently operated by a local company, and has been renamed Sio House (夕遊出張所).This place has an extremely deep connection with salt, which is pronounced Sio in Japanese, and is also a great spot to view the sunset, as well as an evening walking spot for travelers, therefore it was named with the two characters Xi You (夕遊), meaning “Sunset Travel.” Inside Sio House, 366 kinds of colored birthday salts attract many tourists to come and search for their own personal colored salt. The colored salt-baked eggs are both delicious and fun; take a wooden mallet and lightly break the shell to try a warm, fresh baked egg with the distinctive saltpan flavor.

    Not much to see but very friendly staff

    Traveler rating:2 2019-11

    The salt museum is pretty much just the 366 coloured piles of salt. The signs are only written in Chinese but the staff is very friendly and helpful.

    366 colours: one colour for a day

    Traveler rating:2 2019-05

    The main attraction is 366 different coloured salt with a unique colour associated to a day in a year. It is quite an eye opening to see so many different shades of colours that can be made. Rather than being a museum, this place feels more like a tourist shop selling souvenirs by capitalising with one colour to represent one day so usually people will buy those associated with their birthdate.

    Old Japanese house

    Traveler rating:3 2018-11

    It is rather a souvenir shop of salt than a museum. There are 366 kinds of different salt which are connected to birthdays. The house is beautifully reconstructed for old Japanese style.
