The Anshun Salt Fields in the Taijiang National Park were built in 1919 and have two types of sun-drying techniques: the tile-pan salt fields and the earth-pan salt fields. It is the first salt-making area in Taiwan. Most of the current Anshun Salt Fields have now been designated as an ecological protection area, while other parts have been incorporated into the Tainan City Industrial Zone. Several salt village buildings and a small part of the salt fields have been transformed into facilities that highlight the salt industry culture and offer ecological education.

To promote the local history and culture, the Taijiang National Park Administration (Administration) launches the "Anshun Salt Fields" board game, which opens for registration and on 1 December 2022. For further detail, please visit the official website of Taijiang National Park.
