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.”

Liulang Road Scenic Trail
The Liulang Road Scenic Trail is one of the busiest tourist routes in the Shuinandong/Jinguashi/Jiufen region. The name ;Liulang; originates from the term "liu-long;, which is a local slang for gondola lifts. In the past, traffic problems in Jiufen led to the construction of a light rail connecting Ruifang to Jinguashi, but a stretch of terrain that became Liulang Road of today proved too steep for rail construction, so a gondola was built to transport passengers between the light rail stations.In principle, the Liulang Road Scenic Trail follows the original route of the light trail and gondola. The cliffs en route consist mainly of tough rocks. These rocks house gold urns containing the remains of past gold miners.
