Nightscape-viewing from Yangmingshan 陽明山夜景

Anchor point


The nightscape viewed from Yangmingshan is a famous tourism attraction of Taipei City. In addition to Yangde Blvd., where uphill travelers will be mesmerized by the dark sky sprayed with blinking stars, merged with a shimmering sea of city lights, the locations in Yangmingshan popular with nightscape-viewers also include: the Baiyun Villa, Zhuzihu Scenic Lookout, Yonggong Rd., Lin Yutang House, and the road that bypasses Yangmingshan National Park and leads to Dinghu or Beitou. Likewise, the Erziping Recreational Area and Qingtiangang are both terrific stargazing spots known for a panoramic view. With a premium location close enough to the Taipei Basin and a slope steep enough, the iconic back-hills of Chinese Culture University offer a bird’s eye view of the city cloaked by night, and an illusion of being sucked into the nebulous, dreamily lit windows below.

    Amazing national park nearby Taipei city with hot springs


    This is an amazing national park which is close to Taipei city. And very easy access by bus. There are many hot spring scenery to see inside the park. Make sure check the flower clock. There are also many restaurant inside which can enjoy nice night view of city. There are different things to see and do all around year. Also different flower to see at different month. Great place to enjoy the nature. Also, it’s cooler than the city. And great place to hiking, the tallest mountain of Taipei city is inside. It’s link little yellow stone park of Taiwan.

    Lovely place! If you don't drive, there's a little country bus which takes you on a ring road around the mountain. Take a long hike if you have several hours. Can get a bit misty and rainy (that's Taiwan for you), so go prepared!

    Caught the Sakura over at Yang Ming Shan!


    My friends and I made it here in time to catch the Sakura season over at the Yang Ming Shan Mountain areas! We hired a driver that drove us all the way from our hotel and brought us out for a full day tour over at the Yang Ming Shan National Park Area. There were a few checkpoints that the driver have introduced us which were really great spots to take an OOTD photo and see the Sakura flowers! We even managed to squeeze in some time to actually do a short trek around the area and I would highly recommend people to drop by. Feb will be a good and cooling season to come!

    Wonderful hiking options


    From Taipei, take the S15 (small bus) for a 30-minute or so inexpensive bus ride to this wonderful mountainous place. For a worthwhile half-day adventure, start at Qingtiangang Visitor Center, hike over a hanging bridge to Lenshuikeng Visitor Center, where you can get a meal or something to drink. Cross the road, turn right and walk 5 minutes to a Hot Spring where you can dip your feet or up to your thigh in nice warm water. From there, hike some more, past scenic Menghuan Pond, where you can hear birds, frogs, and other wildlife. Eventually, you will reach Mt. Qixing East Peak, then on to Mt. Qixing itself. Relax here with other climbers, before descending to Xiaoyoukeng Visitor Center. There you can take the 108 bus back to where you can grab the S15 back to Taipei. This can be a strenous, relatively steep climb in parts, in particular if you are not in ready hiking shape. And the hike back down is steep and slippery in parts, so wear good hiking shoes and be careful. On cloudy days, you won't see much beyond the immediately visible (including some wlidlife), but on clear days you can see for miles, and it's spectacular.
