Bitan is one of the eight famous attractions in Taiwan which is near by MRT Xindian station and a good place for people to relax and enjoy their weekend.The Xindian River branches off the Danshui River and winds its way through the Bitan area. There are terraces, ponds, and sand bars on both banks of the stream. This area is suitable for canoeing, fishing, barbecuing, rowing, and exploring nature.The lake's steep cliffs and aquamarine water make it one of Xindian's scenic spots. The green lake suspension bridge was renovated and reopened to public use in 2000. A park on the eastern shore contains paths and viewing stands. Floating in a boat on the lake, the reflection of the green mountains create and exquisitely beautiful scene.

    Nice to spend half a day


    The promenade along the river is a good place to stroll and for children to run. Lovely natural scenery around a run-down town. The best views are on the suspension bridge. There are plenty of cafes along the river to chill.

    Mountain breeze walk along Bitan area


    Easy transportation with Taipei subway. Get off at Xindian. Very nice lake scenary along the river with restaurants and water cycles for rent. Take time to walk along the river trail into the mountains to see the old villages and experience the river boat as old transport in those days. Try the hang bridge which link the the river banks. See the old shops and stalls and have a taste of the Taiwan street food and snacks.

    Bitan Scenic Area really is a good place for holidays and weekdays


    My recommendation for travellers is to go walking across the Bitan Suspension Bridge and also go have a look at the only man-power ferry boat left in Taiwan.

    Interesting outdoor option in taipei . Small lake where you can rent a swan boat. Or walk around or along the bridge. Lots of cafes along the lake for local and foreign tourists
