The Bitan Scenic Area in the Xindian District is one of the best go-to spots for a relaxing weekend getaway in Taipei. People come here to fish, barbecue, and more. One of the most popular activities to do in this area is stand up paddle boarding along the Xindian River. There’s plenty to see with the area’s abundance of ponds, terraces, and sandbars. The water's natural aquamarine color is worth marveling at as well. With your English/Chinese-speaking instructor, spend some time paddling across the waters and admiring the views all around you. Listen closely so you can learn as much tips and techniques as you can about stand up paddle boarding. Smile for the inclusive photography service so you can bring home spectacular photos to always remember this experience.
