Sihcao green tunnel
Sihcao Green Tunnel in Tainan was once a salt canal. 750 meters long and 20 meters wide, the canal was used to transport salt products from the drying field to the storage back in the days. The rich habitat of the mangrove the canal cuts through is the wetland environment with the most variety of species and plants in Taiwan. It is now organized into a tourism canal for visitors to examine and experience this well preserved wetland.
Tammy & Nive in Sihcao Green Tunnel
This is our very first time travel together. I’m Tammy (Left) and a girl beside me is Nive. Due to that day we missed the bus number 99. Therefore we decided to take T- bike to explore Tainan. Here is one of must visit places in Tainan. Sihcao Green Tunnel is right beside and under management of Sihcao Dajhong Temple. There are two raft routes provided, the Sihcao Green Tunnel and Taijiang Boat Ride. Taijiang boat ride takes you out to the shore to explore the coastline of the wetland.
Sihcao Dajhong Temple
The Sihcao Green Tunnel takes you into the canal to examine closely to the plants and the species along the way. The 30 minute raft ride through the well preserved mangrove with greeneries covering the sides and rare species resting randomly in the woods is very relaxing. With a professional guide explaining the history and ecological facts, the ride is also very educational.
