Rainbow Bridge 彩虹橋

Anchor point
The167-meter long Rainbow Bridge lies across the Keelung River, connecting Xinming Road in the Neihu District and Raohe Street in the Songshan District. Suspended at the center by four steel cables, the uniquely S-shaped, red-painted bridge has an arch structure reinforced with steel ribs, complete with wooden railings. Generously paved with pink and pale blue tiles, the bridge is a modern landmark and also a public facility that can only be accessed by foot and by bicycle. People are often seen strolling on the bridge, which is a shortcut between Neihu and the Raohe Night Market and Songshan Railway Station, drastically saving travel time for those living in the Songshan and Neihu Districts. The Rainbow Bridge attracts many amateur photographers at night, when its illumination adds much to the beauty of the city’s nightscape. Meanwhile, the Blue Highway’s terminal wharf established here also helps to draw crowds to the bridge, making it an emerging, popular tourist destination for those visiting Taipei.

    An iconic look out over the river near the night market with lots of viewpoints. I came along at night for a stroll and was struck by how clean and peaceful it was.

    The bridge is not special but the park near it offers some place to sit and relax after the night market and maybe eat some food you bought there.

    Nothing special. Just and old bridge

    We were expecting that the bridge is glowing in rainbow color, hence the name, but no. The bridge is just a plain old bridge and nothing impressive.

    Noticed the sign to the bridge when we were walking through the market. The bridge was quite colourful and interesting looking. There was quite a nice view at the top looking down the river. It wasn't too difficult getting up the stairs to the bridge. The area was really quiet, a stark contrast to the markets so it was a nice change of scenery.
