Bitan(碧潭) Bridge, Xindian(新店)

As usual, on the weekend I spent my days by wandering around in Taipei. If there still a metro line to it, I go for it(traveler cemen, maunya gampang).

On Saturday I go to Xindian(新店) the southest part on the MRT Line. Actually I have no idea what they have in here until I googled it on the MRT train. They said, they have a night market and a suspension bridge. Well, since I was going on quite noon, the night market will not be there, so let’s take a walk on the Suspension Bridge, and if I stay long enough, maybe will take a look on the night market.

When I arrived on the MRT Station, I was shocked. I thought Xindian will be like more a countryside with no tall building at all. But dude I was wrong. The place is nice, it has that modern atmosphere instead a countryside. I actually kinda like the neighborhood. To go to the suspension bridge what we have to do is just take a quick left after exiting the station. from there you can see the bridge crossing the Xindian River. They have some cycling area with rented bike over there.

I decided to take a little walk around the riverbed. It is nice, putting the heat aside. the wind was blowing so nice. take a little walk and I found a row of restaurants, or 餐廳 (Can Ting) in Chinese. I see a little on the price and that price is the same as my weight. Damn High! But I think if you are a tourist it would be fine to stay and spend some cash on food there.

After walking quite a while at the restaurant row, which is de-routing from the suspension bridge, I decided to walk back to the bridge with different route, which is apparently a backyard from some apartment there. So, I walk until the bridge and crossed it. on the other side I see an old lady selling Ice Cream 冰淇淋 (Bing Qi Lin). I kinda want to buy it but I be a man and hold my desire to eat the Ice Cream!(Well, it’s kinda going to rain though, that’s why I can resist the Ice Cream) I take a walk from the bridge and see some hiking cycling route.

After a little walk on the other side of the bridge, I decided to go back because it’s look like it is gonna rain. BIG TIME! And I was RIGHT! as soon as I enter the MRT Station, the thunder is starting to play. I was kinda happy I don’t decide to go to the night market, because I will be soaked if I pushed to go there.

Well, until next time.
