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.

There’s a couple of cafes and a restaurant and some great staff to assist with any questions you might have....

Very nice facility with an observation deck, many volunteers willing to assist you with information and spotting scopes to observe these birds.
Wonderful facility in support of this bird and additional wildlife.
Three 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...
This is a huge temple, located next to the Sihcao canal.
While parts of the temple feel more of a theme park than an actual temple (due to the excessive usage of gold in it), its sheer size is very impressive.
Make sure to check out the back side of the temple - there's a small walkaway which allows you...
