Oyster Farm Tour in Cigu Lagoon, Tainan (七股潟湖龍海號+烤蚵)

In this trip, we visited Tainan and unlike Taipei, Tainan is laid-back and you hardly see much vehicles or people on the street. We visited many places in Tainan but the highlight was definitely the tour to the oyster farm in Cigu Lagoon!

We took the Long Hai Hao Raft where they tour around the living habitat of the Taiwan oysters!

The boat captain invited some passengers for hands on experience!

You see that ball of rock looking stuff? That’s how they farm the oysters in the Lagoon! When you pull them out, TADAH, there are a whole lot more below the first ball!

This is followed by the much anticipated oyster feast!

The oysters are smaller than those farmed in Australia and even though I am not much of an oyster fan, I stuffed more than 15 oysters in my face. They were so fresh that by eating it as it is after a simple grill over charcoal brings you on an oyster high. BBQ Oyster with a little Wasabi is my favourite!

Slurps. I’m salivating right now.

We also ordered a grilled fish which the staff helped grill to perfection! This was one of the meals which we really eat our hearts out!

For a mere NT $ 330, which translate to slightly over SGD 14, we had unlimited supply of oysters for an hour. Don’t understand that 1 hour, one of us armed with 2 cans of Heineken, ate almost close to 50 oysters.

    How do you get to this place? Do you need to do advance booking. I will be flying into Kaoshiong and staying in the hotel there, do I need to book a hotel in Tainan?

    Hi! May i know how much did you book the driver for? If let’s say we just need him to pick up from tainan or chiayi to cigu oyster farm and back to tainan.

      Hi there, it’s been too long since we book him. I can’t remember how much we paid but I’m sure they also do one day tour.
