The Sicao Mangroves Green Tunnel (四草綠色隧道) was the first artificial canal built in Taiwan more than a hundred years ago; mangroves grow thick on the two banks of the canal to form the “green tunnel” through which a raft takes you on a 30 minute ride. I was adamant to see it, so much so that it was the first stop I made when I arrived in Tainan on that Saturday morning. Luck was not on my side and it was drizzling so hard, the raft rides were cancelled because of the high water level in the canal. I went back the next morning, in slightly better weather, to see what people called the “mini Amazon”. If you are planning to visit Tainan, please make sure you check against the raft ride timings and see this beautiful nature reserve for yourself.
