Thursday: open 24 hours




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.

    Relaxing Walk


    I came here alone during the day and it was quiet and relaxing. It can be good for walking with family, friends or just some romantic time with your sweetie.

    Great to walk at day or night


    Can walk or bike. Along path north to a section with morning market. Small reservoir to rent a boat.

    Spectacular - a sight to behold at night


    We were fortunate that our ship departed 10pm so we were able to get the full benefit of the beautiful light show that is the Rainbow Bridge, this after the best city tour by 2 university students from Like It Formosa guides (see separate review). Thanks you Taiwan

    Loved the bridge especially sunday evenings


    You can do a lot of things on this bridge, you can sit on one of the benches and enjoy the water or just watch locals pass by or you can buy some good food from the adjacent night market and bring it here and peacefully eat that. Recommended maybe for about 1-2 hours to relax.

    Maybe because it was very foggy that day but we walked from the subway station all the way to the river walk to see the rainbow bridge. Nothing special. We just walked back to the street market not far away.
