Honestly! I had to spend 1h10 into the bus to get there! and the last bus left at 18:10! what for? for a mountain of "salt" black of air pollution... anyway, it's my opinion, but nothing very amazing there!

Wasn't expecting much when I planned this but the view was spectacular! Walk up the mountain if you can and you will be able to see the beautiful surroundings. Be careful when walking as it can get rather slippery.

We came here in July, very hot. Kids not willing to walk and see. Better to come in autum or winter, so visitors may enjoy and willing to walk around.

The trip is primarily to see the man-made mountain of salt. We were told that it used to be that one scales the salt mountain. Now the stair is topped with a layer of fiber glass for easy footing and protecting the steps against erosion...More

Beimen Area II
This part is the more populous and busier district
along the coast in western Tainan. It was one of the
places where the Siraya people, Taiwan’s plains
aborigines called home. Extending from Jiali, Soulangh
Cultural Park is the centre of culture and art in the
area. The exhibitions in the warehouses at the sugar
refinery integrates local culture.
