I spend a Saturday afternoon with friends there. There are a lot of choices of food (like most tourist spots in Taiwan)
Both side of this Drawbridge have shops and puddle boat stations....More
Take your time to enjoy he view of nature. It's not spectacular but beautiful view of mountains on one side and city view on the other. It's a drawbridge but don't feel like one, it's big enough and not big sway. No need to afraid.
Very scenic bridge definitely worth crossing. We chose a bright sunny day to visit the Bitan Scenic Area. Being a weekday, it was very peaceful. The bridge definitely adds up to the charm of this already relaxing area. It is a well-built structure, not shaky...More
The drawbridge spans the river and is a fantastic place for sunset photography! The quaint rickey drawbridge is shakey and adds to the drama and excitement as you traverse its length. Below, you can see paddle boats and colorful LEDs lighting the banks. Many locals...More

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
take some rest, why not set foot in feature restaurants on the east bank and comfort your soul with great food and beautiful scenery with an air of romance. The neighboring Wulai is one of the few districts in Northern Taiwan with indigenous culture. You can visit the Atayal Museum for the history and culture of indigenous people, or go for an in-depth indigenous tribal life experience and enjoy unique totems and architecture. The area is famous for its hot springs and cherry blossoms. Visit in spring to bask in the color of cherry blossoms, and experience hot springs in winter to warm the body and heart. Don’t miss the old street if you enjoy shopping and buying. If you want to stand closer to nature, the different appearance of Wulai Waterfall from time to time from trickling to overwhelming will capture your heart.
