The mountain area in Tainan has a variety of geological features ranging from forests at low altitude to the barren land of chalk soil. Mountain trails wind through mountain peaks. When it is sunny, the landscape of the coastline of western Tainan can be seen from the mountains. Yujing is famous for mangoes. A lot of tourists come here to enjoy the delicious Irwin mango shaved ice from June to August.
In spring and summer, the nights at Meiling in Nanci District see a bustle of fireflies throughout the valley, whereas in winter, a scattering of white plum blossoms intersperse among Meiling. Tasting plum chicken soup while appreciating a sea of clouds here is a great luxury.
Situated in Nanhua, which has a myriad of secret destinations, is a guesthouse “Breezy Village” that is similar to the scene in the movie “Spirited Away.” What is more, when you walk into the Vajrayana Padma Wod Ling (Tibetan meditation centre), you would think you were in Tibet. Wandering on the highway along Nanhua Reservoir gives you an opportunity to appreciate the grand view of natural valley and mirror-like water surface.
The most mind-blowing sunrise over a sea of clouds can only be appreciated in Erliao in Zuojhen. Everyday thousands of visitors and photography lovers come here just to see it. The landform of chalk soil also renders Zuojhen the name of Moon World.
The reservoir itself is nice to look at but there are not a lot of things to do. We did not see any trails for hiking. There is a huge forest area around but not a lot of tourists. I would not recommend going unless you pass by there anyway. You even need to pay to go in.

There are bus tours that go there as well. Many shops to choose from and a mango market to buy wholesale mangos for...
Most tourists don't know about this Tibetan temple in Tainan. If you take a taxi here, you will thank me later. It's a huge temple complex that will give you a special feeling of peace. The temple office kindly ordered me a return taxi.
