The gondola ride includes four stops, namely the Taipei Zoo Station, Taipei Zoo South Station, Zhinan Temple Station, and the Maokong Station. The three most beautiful times to take the gondola are in the midst after rain, when the sun is setting, and when the lights of the city are shining at night. As the gondola passes over the undulating terrain, you can glimpse moving Metro trains, the park along the Jingmei River, and the "giraffe" incinerator. When you reach the second stop, the gondola takes a big turn, and you will get a panoramic view of the landscape, including vehicles moving along the freeway below.

Welcome to Pingxi
Situated in the northeast area of New Taipei City, Pingxi is a well-known mountain town, which is near the upstream of Keelung River and surrounded by mountains. As the Keelung River runs through this small town, which has caused very obvious erosion and dissected topography in the vicinity, there are a number of faults and peculiarly-shaped rocks and boulders. Numerous waterfalls of different sizes appear where the river flows, including the Shifen Waterfall, Lingjiao Waterfall, and Yenjingdong Waterfall (meaning glasses hole) as well as a few potholes. These natural phenomena are all rare landscapes in northern Taiwan. Pingxi is also known as the “home of sky lanterns.” The ancestors in Pingxi hid in caves around hillsides upon the invasion of armed bandits. Those who remained in villages would release sky lanterns to inform their villagers in hiding that the crisis was over. Hence, sky lanterns were also called peace lantern or blessing lanterns. Today, visitors come to Pingxi to release a sky lantern during Lunar New Year holidays to wish for a prosperous year ahead. As environmental awareness increases in recent years, the eco-friendly materials of sky lanterns have been adopted to achieve the balance of tourism and ecology, and sky lanterns are released in a controlled quantity each year.
【English】Chen Cheng-po outdoor Art Museum
Chen Cheng-Po Outdoor Art Museum is exhibiting twelve pictures of Tamsui scenery by the first fine-art painter Chen Cheng-Po (1895-1947). The exhibition introduces viewers to historical aspects of the paintings, leading them into the Tamsui of former years. During the mid-1930s, Chen visited Tamsui frequently. He portrayed various natural and cultural products from the local area with paint, fountain pen, or pencil, on canvas or sketchbook. It is rare in Taiwan, even in the whole of Asia, for a painter to create such a great number of scenic works depicting a single location, so these paintings are special. Chen’s works are not only of value in terms of art history, they are also evidence of Tamsui’s history. Many scenes and buildings depicted in Chen’s works are still well-preserved. Guests may visit famous spots like Jinkang Street, Tamsui Red Castle, Chapel of Presbyterian Church, Tamkang Senior High School, and Customs Wharf, which have been depicted in Chen’s paintings. One may experience the history of the town of Tamsui through these incredible artworks. The exhibition is hosted by Tamsui District Office and Chen Cheng-Po Cultural Foundation, and is on display at the art gallery in front of the Presbyterian Church Chapel. Through a Beacon mobile guiding system, the visitor is able to view a detailed analysis of the painting while appreciating the works, and listen to the audio tour in Chinese, English, and Japanese.
