Tainan Countryside Fun

Hello everyone. Welcome to Time for Taiwan. My name is Michella Jade Weng. The origin of more than 10,000 branches, this is Nankunshen Temple, one of the most symbolic places of coastal Tainan. In addition to coming to see the temple, visitors to these parts also come to experience the unique local fish and salt farm life.

Ever been mudskipper catching before? They're cute, amphibious and live happily in mud.

The sensation of mud squishing through my toes is not something I could have imagined. And it's not all that soft, but it's slippery, so if you're not careful...

I knew it.

That wasn't a fart, OK?

This one is big.

Mudskippers are supposed to be very good for you, and some people eat them with soup and ginger. But we're not having any today. Too cute. No way.

Michella Jade Weng, Host:
So it's lunch time and today we're making our own meal of chicken and eggs, Taiwanese sausages, sweet potatoes and corn by baking it in this mud oven.

Most kids love these lunches, especially because they can help out.

More than an hour later when the oven is nice and hot and red, in go the pots, sweet potatoes, corn and sausage. Then on goes the lid and then the eggs on top of that.

Another 45 minutes later, you remove the dirt that's been keeping in the heat and lunch is served!

How's the food, kids?

Ready for more fun? Late in the afternoon, Beimen's hundred-year-old salt pans are a good place to be, especially if you're looking for a nice sunset.

When you see the sun about to go beneath the horizon, you might want to get your camera ready. This is one of the must-shoot scenes for photographers in Taiwan. And even if you don't have lots of experience or a fancy camera, this is still one picture you won't want to miss. Catch the shot, and you'll remember it as the one place you'll wish to come to again.
