I ranked this terrible because the museum is now closed due to lack of funds and interest. The Salt Mountain is still open but I would not advise a special trip and if you are driving by it can be adequately seen from the road.

Anping District/ Annan District
Anping District is the area first developed in Taiwan.
It is also the key to Taiwan’s involvement in the

monuments, Anping Fort (a.k.a. Fort Zeelandia) and
Eternal Golden Castle leave behind them the traces of
international trade made by various countries. Another
historic monument that stands the test of time is Tree
House, in which beautiful stories were created along
