Jing Zhai Jiao Tile Paved Salt Fields(井仔腳瓦盤鹽田)

Traveler rating:4.5 93 Reviews

Wednesday:09:00 – 17:30





Jing Zhai Jiao Tile Paved Salt Fields(井仔腳瓦盤鹽田) were Beimen's first salt fields, and the oldest remains of tile paved salt fields in existence, and feature beautiful art made from salt tiles that resemble mosaics. 2002 saw the end of 338 years of thriving salt industry at Jing Zhai due to the rising costs of labor, and the salt fields which used to cover this whole place were abandoned for a while. In order to revive the culture of the salt industry and breathe new life into the salt fields, the site has now been brought back to life as a distinctive scenic spot on Tainan's coast.  Every day the sunset shines on the salt field and it reflects the sky's beauty, with the clouds over Beimen Lagoon on the horizon. For this reason, the salt field is always full of photography equipment, and an endless stream of tourists come to appreciate the scenery, reviving the life memories of residents, and allowing tourists to experience the drying, raking and collecting of the salt. Every day brings a different kind of salt pan sunset; this is a scenic spot of Tainan's coast that cannot be missed.

    Beautiful but far from town

    Traveler rating:4 2019-10

    The salt field is very far from city and must be travel by car. Actually it is quite small and nothing much to do, just take photo. I went there in noon so nothing much to do. The guide told us at sunset, a lot of people come to take beautiful sunset due to the salt lake reflection. There is a shop selling souvenirs, ice cream and salt. There are also a few stalls selling food close by.

    Beautiful reflections of salt field

    Traveler rating:5 2019-05

    I 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.
