Taijiang Ecological Culture Zone(台江生態文化園區)
Crystal white salt fields shine in the sunlight, migratory birds from far away are hovering in the sky, and sitting on the pipe raft exploring the surprise brought by sunshine penetrating the densely growing mangroves, children are joyously enjoying the fisherman’s lifestyle. This is the Taijiang Ecological Culture Zone.
Ecologically, the wetland with the most coastal ecological resources is located in Taijiang. Besides the thick mangrove, there is a rare wonder called the “Green Tunnel” interwoven with the mangrove. In recent years, Sicao Dazhong Temple and the Mangrove Protection Association have arranged the mangrove fishing raft tour from the Sicao Dazhong Temple to the north bank of the Sicao Bridge for visitors to experience and explore the beauty of the mangrove. The fish, shrimps, shellfish, and benthos in the wetland also attract various types of migratory birds to forage in the zone, including common guests like sandpipers, gulls, herons, ducks and geese, and even the rare guest black-faced spoonbills.
Broadly speaking, the range of the Taijiang Ecological Culture Zone covers the Zhengwen River estuary in the north, including the Orthodox Luermen Shengu (Mazu)Temple and the Luermen Matsu Temple, the two major Matsu temples in Tainan City, bordering the Provincial Highway No. 17; the western part of Annan District, including the Sicao Wildlife Refuge, Taiwan Salt-Pan Eco-Village, Luermen River Ancient Trail (landing site of Cheng-king ZHENG), and the ancient battlefield between Cheng-king ZHENG and the Dutch. In zone A3 near the Sicao Wildlife Refuge, apart from the astonishing windbreak, there are comprehensive water park facilities built by the Chengxi Incineration Plant to benefit local citizens. In summer, these facilities are very popular. Integrating ecological education and historical sights, the Taijiang Ecological Culture Zone is an ideal spot for family eco-tour.

Take the cruise or the tunnel ride ?We went with a big group and due to timing, we took the river cruise instead. Thankfully, the cruise tour guide was really informative and knowledgeable so we learn so much on the surroundings and all the birds and sights we saw. Unfortunately, she only speaks Taiwanese/Mandarin.
Boat rides, temple ceremony & museumThree different attractions in one place: 1. River & harbour boat tours: certainly not the best organized (especially if large bus tours disrupt the schedule) but relaxing boat rides through the mangrove river and the harbour (2 separate tours). 2. Lucked out and saw a ceremony at the nearby temple that included a guy scarifying himself with various weapons plus drum dance of two spirits. Lots of loud fireworks. 3. Museum in the same square had a whole whale skeleton, plus shells and skeletons of various sea animals of the area. A decent few hours!
A great place for amateur birdersIt took some work cycling there from Anping, but it was worth it. We saw lots of familiar water birds--egrets, terns, & herons--and others that were new to us, like ruby-throated kingfishers, night herons and spoonbills. We enjoyed the boat tour through the mangrove forest--saw a few birds and our guide pointed out nests & such (albeit in Mandarin). The temple near the boat launch (Shicao Dazhong) is impressive, and there are benches out back in a little picnic area that borders on the mangroves. The only problem was in the organization of the masses of people, which was a bit chaotic. We bought our tickets, and then learned that we'd need to wait several _hours_ before our turns on the boat. Fortunately, the bikes enabled us to take off on a random jaunt through the ecological preserve.
This is a trip to ecologyYou can take a bamboo raft here to visit the mangrove river,It cost $ 250 NT Introduction information that is comparable to the Amazon River, but after visiting that feel a little over The journey takes approximately 30 minutes I suggest you visit are suitable 07-09AM But do not expect too much

Lovely, but the canal ride is rather short.This is a lovely area, outside Tainan. The boat ride through the green canal takes maybe 20 minutes (200 TWD - apx. 6 USD). During the boat ride, you can appreciate the lovely tree canopies and the countless little cancers on the canal's banks. Make sure to put on the local hat on your head, otherwise, you might bruise yourself from the branches. Elderly people might find it difficult to sit on the tiny chairs on the boat. The canal tour itself is only in Chinese, but that does not matter. There's a big temple next to the canal, but the place is quite far from the city center - apx. 30 minutes by taxi - about 150 TWD in each direction.
