Kanga spends Vacation time with Mr Tu in Taiwan

Mr Tu takes Kanga on a Vacation



Schools are closed and children are still on vacation. So I went to Tainan with Mr. Tu’s family and stayed with his relative.
Tainan is a city in southern Taiwan. It is the most antique city of Taiwan, governed as one of special municipalities.

“What is the paddy field for? There is no any  plants inside.”




When you get closer, you can see small crystals in the water. Do you have any idea what it is?



These are salt evaporation ponds.
Salt evaporation ponds, also called salterns or salt pans, are shallow artificial ponds designed to extract salts from sea water or other brines. The seawater or brine is fed into large ponds and water is drawn out through natural evaporation which allows the salt to be subsequently harvested.



They told me the salt here is not for human consumption. These salt evaporation ponds are only for visitors. That’s the reason why I can lie on a pile of salt and enjoy sunbath.



When they told me that drying and salting was the only widely available method of preserving fish until the 19th century, I jumped out of that salt pile and stopped sunbathing. I don’t want to turn myself into one of them.



You can use their facilities . 你可以體驗從前採鹽的辛苦




You can also have a good time hiking in the White Mountain, the giant salt rock. 你也可以登上台灣的長白山–七股鹽山。

    I wonder how much salt they produce a year? It looks like a lot and I wonder how big the salt hills are? It would be great to go there and would like to find out more about then!

    It looks like Kanga is having a blast at the salt farms. I wonder how much salt there is in the whole salt farm? I would love to go there and learn more about the process it goes through. There is a lot of salt at the farm.
