The area
Neighborhood: Banqiao / Zhonghe / Yonghe District
Banqiao district is the center of administration, shopping and transportation of New Taipei City, encompassing shopping, tasting local snacks, and experiencing traditional and night markets. Here is also the first choice of Christmas celebration in Taiwan- Christmasland in New Taipei City. Within this modern complex, a garden architecture full of Chinese tradition “the Lin Family Mansion and Garden” is hidden, complete with attics, pavilions and artificial mountains and fountains. Zhonghe and Yonghe not only have world class soybean milk, but also have places with a rather artistic lifestyle. Near MRT Yongan Market Station, there is the only old document repair book hospital in Taiwan - the National Taiwan Library Book Hospital bookbinding room. It has been here since Taisho year 4 of the Japanese occupation, which is extremely rare! In addition, the tiny crisscrossing streets of these two cultural districts still holds many interesting bookstores waiting for your discovery.

Humungous structure that you can see from everywhere.

We visited this place with a local who told us that people run around here, we spent about 30 minutes walking and having a good talk, the structure is huge and worth the visit for some selfies nothing out of the ordinary.

2017/08/07 新月橋橫跨大漢溪,連接板橋跟新莊兩地,夜晚會散發出七彩顏色,利用燈光來烘托出拱橋優美的弧形,這張倒影照片是在板橋端的濕地池塘旁邊拍攝到的。The reflection of the Crescent Bridge at ponds looks magnificent, Banqiao District, New Taipei City.

Gorgeous Rainbow Colored Bridge!
Nov 2016 • Family
It is a bridge linking Banqiao to Xinzhuang (板橋與新莊), and is a sight to behold in the evening, especially when the bridge is bathed in an array of colors. Very convenient. Only cyclists and pedestrians can share the wide spacing bridge to take an evening stroll or exercise. Some 60m of the walkway are covered with clear glass panels which allow one to see the river 12m directly below. Cool! You can visit the night market at XinZhuang once you cross the bridge (evening time obviously)!

Note: Locals use this a lot, not many foreign tourists there. But it is as much a tourist spot for Taiwanese, especially with the many Pokemon hunters nowadays! Should you be in the area and decide to explore the two districts, this will be a wonderful experience. A pleasant walk, and romantic for couples! Kids will love the walk on the bridge too.

It can be rather windy up there and chilly if it is winter. Jackets or windbreakers advised. Beautiful to photograph, day or night (Best is evening time, at twilight). Almost no dustbins, so carry your rubbish till you cross over the bridge to whichever side. Help keep the bridge clean! And final note: No Smoking allowed on bridge!
