Xindian / Wulai District
The Bitan Scenic Area with its beautiful mountains and
rivers was one of the eight sceneries of Taiwan
earlier on and was reputed as the “little red cliff”
due to its steep cliffs on the west bank. If you enjoy
wandering through this area by bike, there are well
established surrounding riverside cycling paths. One
may also boat on Bitan in paddle boats which are also
quite pleasant. If you are tired and would like to
