Jin Zai Jiao Salt Mine -Tainan Apr 08, 2016
The Jin Zai Jiao salt mine / salt field is one of the old salt field that still remain operating in Taiwan nowadays. The salt field isn't very big but it's a a widely known gem among local photography enthusiasts.

Arriving just moments before the sunset, I saw a row of cameras mounted on tripods all positioned to capture the dramatic sight of salt crystals glinting in the red glow of the sun setting in the distance. I did not bring my camera, but still manage to capture the beautiful sunset with my handphone camera.

There is some open area open to public and allow visitors to take off their shoes and picking up a wooden rake, allow them to do hand harvesting salt by the old-school way in one of the many evaporation ponds. There are free basin and water tape to allow visitor washes their foot or hand when needed.
