Zhilan Park Ocean Viewing Platform used to be a well-known tourist attraction in Sanzhi. It has been closed for many years as it was identified as a dangerous building caused by severe sea erosion. Today, the reconstructed viewing platform is a new building built on top of the original base. At the end of the 57-meter-long aqua-blue corridor, there is a giant shiny wedding ring, designed by a local artist from Sanzhi and the professional team from the municipal government. The ring installation art bears the meaning of relationship, the concept of concentric circles, and the shape of rings. With the color of the ocean as the main tone echoing the magnificent seascape, the fluid and dynamic shape adds to the beauty of the North Coast.
The reconstructed ocean viewing platform is connected to Zhilan Park Trail. Visitors can walk along the trail for about 5 minutes to Qianshui Bay Seaside Park, where they can enjoy the water in the hot summer. They can also sit and listen to the sound of waves in the cafe while enjoying afternoon tea in the beautiful North Coast sunset. All the romantic scenic spots on the North Coast can also be combined into one trip with your partner, as in "First encounter at the Love Boat in Bali, fall in love at Tamsui Lover’s Bridge, committed at Sanzhi Ocean Platform, and engaged at Shimen Happiness Bell.”

Wulai Waterfall Cable Car
The 80-meter-high Wulai Waterfall cascades down from the top of the peaks. The white water bands are completely natural. Its greenish waves often attract tourists to watch the Warriors Square on the opposite side. The Wulai Cable Car, which crosses the Nanshi River by Hot Spring Street, is a charming landmark of Wulai, which sprays upwards. A great location for overlooking the waterfall.
Taishan Down Temple
Due to the increasing number of pilgrims at Taishan Up Temple and the inconvenience faced by pilgrims when hiking up the mountain, Yung-lai Huang and Wu-jiue Tsai proposed to build another temple. As a result, Taishan Down Temple was constructed on Gouzaiqi Street in 1875 (the first year of Emperor Guangxu’s reign in Qing Dynasty. Taishan Down Temple (also known as Down Temple) is not as prominent as Taishan Up Temple, and it is not designated as a historic monument. However, Down Temple still boasts a proud history of nearly 130 years since it was built in 1875.
