Taijiang National Park is the 8th national park of Taiwan. It was established in December, 2009, covering land from Annan to Cigu. It has got its name due to the historical remains of Taijiang Inner Sea. The abundant wetlands and lagoons contain a diversified eco system, and hence, enable visitors to observe various birds and fishes. In addition to the eco diversity in the park, the footprint of and stories about ancestors developing the land portray the look of the fishery and salt industry of earlier days. It can also be imagined how changes have taken place over hundreds of thousands of years from a vast inner sea to present-day wetlands and plains. Getting on a pipe raft in Cigu area on Taijiang River is the best way to understand the ecology and landscape of the inner sea. Stepping on the sandbank is like ascending a no-man’s land. Visitors can overlook the blue Taiwan Strait, and traces of crabs on the sand beach could be found. On the way back, try the freshly caught seafood. Oysters and milkfish are the local delicacies, to name a few.
The Black-faced spoonbills winter here. On the day I went, they were resting behind a mangrove island so I didn’t see them. Apparently if one of the local ospreys flies by, they will be flushed into flight.
You can get here by bus on the weekends. Take the 99 loop bus to the end of the line. The birdwatching bus...
We actually only drove through part of the park but we spotted some nice species: egrets, grey herons, stilts. There were also ibises, but we were told that they were runaways from breeding farms as it's not a local species. Unfortunately we did not find any spoonbills.
Big and beautiful Chinese temple of Taiwan. The temple architecture is really very beautiful and massive.
The temple is not very old but is a very important religious center for people of Taiwan and as informed people from around the country visit it.
Good to give a visit if around
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.
This is a very big national park. You can visit the nature reserves, mangrove, beach area, salt hills, temples and many more.
The sites are very scattered, so do plan your route carefully. Great place for outdoor lover.
Located somewhere in the outskirts of Tainan, we came here after visiting some salt fields. The food was awesome, everything we had was fresh and the dessert was a great ending (we had their famous tapioca dessert soup). Only downside was that the toilets didn't have soap nor toilet paper.
