      Being Taipei City dwellers’ collective memory, Bitan has now had many brand-new looks, such as the annual Bitan dancing water show and many other changes in the surrounding area that are worth your re-visit. Stepping outside MRT Xindian Station, the first view in sight is Bitan Suspension Bridge that crosses over the river. The Bridge has undergone an upgrade in 2018 and has reinitiated its lighting in November of the same year; now there are more spectacular light sculpture shows to watch every day. Once you are at Bitan, certainly you have to try paddling the swan boat – it’s a part of many people’s memories of their youth! Visitors can even ride the YouBike and follow the cycling route along the Xindian River and enjoy the cooling breeze on the way to Xiaobitan. Sunshine Bridge in Xiaobitan is New Taipei City’s first river-crossing scenic bridge that offers a stylish look, as well as pedestrian and bike trails with nighttime light sculptures. As the musical string-like steel wire ropes are illuminated with moving light sculpture, the image simply resembles a magnificent light concerto! Passing through the Sunshine Bridge, you will find near the other side of the River – Anhe International Sightseeing Night Market. The Night Market has begun operation since yearend 2018 and is as vast as 5,000 ping (which is equivalent to 39 basketball courts), which includes a tourist information center as well as family restrooms. It’s definitely not crowded and offers night owls the ultimate enjoyment in tasting delicious food.
