New Taipei CityA Unique Blend of Nature, Culture, and Energy
Surrounded by mountains, Taipei is a basin city highlighted by its dynamic energy and international spirit. In the northern area of the city is the Yangmingshan National Park, one of the favorite leisure spots among the people living in Taipei because of its unique volcanic topography enriched by a rich variety of plants and luxuriant forests. Beitou hot springs at the foot of hills have been a renowned attraction ever since the 20th century. The nearby golf courses offer panoramic view and fabulous scenery, thus is a great option for a relaxing tour combining golf, hot spring, and cuisine. Tamsui, formerly a fishing village located at the mouth of Tamsui River in the northwest of Taipei Basin, boasts beautiful sunset and distinctive fisherman’s delicacies. As most golf courses in Tamsui sit on mild slopes, a magnificent view of the river mouth is ready to be admired from on one of these courses. A good example is the North Bay Golf & Country Club—which features spectacular precipitous cliffs and panoramic ocean view—at the coastline on the north side of Tamsui. After an enjoyable round of golf, don’t forget to pamper yourself with fresh seafood at the fishing port nearby.
