【 Introduction 】
Dahu Bihu Meiti Riverside park
*Order Reversible
With the billowing trees overhead, the silver water shimmers in the sun. Such scenic views can be found in Dahu, Bihu, and the Meiti Hebing park, three large bodies of water all in the Neihu area. The lakes were built initially by the government for disaster prevention, a format that came from Japan allowing for evacuation to more spacious areas. The paved hiking trails in nearby hills and Chinese style pavilions on the water all provide a nice environment to work up a bit of sweat or relax with the view of water. 

While biking and circling the paved path around the lake may be nice, biking from the lakes to the river allows a simultaneous exploration of the Neihu district, a stark contrast to the city centers. The frequent YouBike stands around the lake make the biking trip all the more convenient.
