Beautiful reflections of salt fieldI arrived at the salt fields just before 5pm. The sun was starting to set and the scene of it was beautiful. Salt was piled up in sections throughout the field. Most of the sections were prohibited from entering. Nevertheless there were some sections with tools and salt for people to experience salt farm ploughing. The sunset scene (5:30-6pm) was so pretty that either mobiles or cameras could easily take nice photos of it. Unfortunately there was a bit of thick cloud near the horizon, I couldn’t see the sunset till the end.

Salt fieldThere is an activity area for kids to play with salt. Also a souvenir shop selling chips ice cream, buns and salt. Some vendors outside selling fried food. Can give it a miss if not into salt.
Beautiful SunsetI read some ‘lukewarm’ reviews about this place but still insisted to have a visit. We were staying at Grand Uncle House, Baihe. The owner & our driver reminded us to reach the salt fields before 4.30pm in order to see sunset and the many birds returning to their nests. Our driver alighted us at the entrance of Jingzaijiao. There wasn’t a salt factory. Tonnes of salt were covered by canvass sheets. The fields were not green but white with salt remnants. Crystalized grounds like cement I thought. Triangular heaps of salt (greyish yellow in colour though if you go closer to examine) were separated in every section and visitors could take photos without much obstruction. There is a tower that you could climb up to by stairs & stand on it to have a good view of the surrounding. It was so windy, we felt so cold. The scenery was beautiful, coupled with sunset... hundreds of birds flying back home! Many visitors were from Korea, their tripod stands & shuttle cams were ready for the sunset views! We were thankful as we didn’t miss a single bit! There is a souvenir shop. We bought some items there but they weren’t really salt-related though. You can buy their salted soaps & scrubs. Don’t forget to try some snacks (deep fried fins) at a stall just outside the entrance. We didn’t realise that the restaurant where we were going to for dinner later happened to be their’s too (see below for details). This restaurant is just 5 minute drive away. Please visit them, the quality was good & service was prompt. Try their famous noodles! The price was reasonable. ** According to some of the locals there, this field is going to be converted to either a big amusement park or a huge playground ** We also visited the tiniest church in Tainan called the Crystal Church. There was an event there ‘Ladies’ Night’. We just went there & took some pictures (picture in green). We enjoyed our day in Tainan & would not hesitate to revisit next time.
Salt HarvestingExperience salt harvesting from sea water. It’s quite a distance from Tainan but it’s well worth the trip. Sea water goes through 2 reservoirs to increase the salt content before it goes to the salt field . It’s tough work and one can experience the back breaking tasks a harvester goes through. This Is the oldest Salt field in Taiwan and do make the trip if possible. Outside the salt fields ; there are stalls selling salted eggs, Pei Tan and dried fish. The eggs taste good ! Make the trip and experience the efforts that goes in harvesting salt . If time & weather permits; stay to watch the sunset .
