  • 남항산계-코끼리산 보도 (난강산맥-샹산 등산코스)

    주소:
    Taiwan, Taipei City, Xinyi District, 象山步道 .

    소개
    사수산(四獸山)은 타이베이시 송산, 신의구와 가장 가까운 산이다. 코끼리산은 사수산 보도계열에서 가장 높은 곳에 위치해 있으며 전방에 장애물이 없어 높이 올라 타이베이의 풍경을 보기에 매우 적합하다. 신의구의 상권의 101빌딩, 국제무역센터, 워너 영화관, 신광미츠코시 백화점 등 눈에 띄는 건축이 헤아리기 어렵게 많은 타이베이 분지의 풍경을 모두 감상할 수 있는 곳이다. 코끼리산은 범위가 넓지 않지만 감상할 곳은 매우 많다. 그 중 산위에 웅크리고 있는 육거석(六巨石)은 코끼리산의 대표적인 경관으로 거석이 즐비해 있어 경관이 특이하다. 코끼리산에서 거석을 타고 올라가야만 정말 코끼리산을 등산했다고 할 수 있다. 정상의 풍경은 또 다른데 사방에서 불어오는 바람을 맞으며 끝없이 펼쳐진 타이베이시의 모습을 볼 수 있고 101빌딩을 찍기에 매우 적합한 곳이다.타이베이 분지를 감상하는데 가장 좋은 위치는 능선에 위치한 시야가 확 트인 초연정(超然亭)인데 이 초연(超然)이란 명칭에서도 알 수 있듯이 여기서 바라보는 풍경은 코끼리산에서 최고라 할 수 있다. 초연정의 평대에 서서 보면 가까이 산 아래의 신의계획구가 보이고 멀리 원산, 북투(베이터우)분화로, 관음산과 대둔산 화산군 등 경관이 눈에 들어온다. 국경일에 불꽃놀이가 있을 경우 많이 사람들이 이곳에서 감상하기도 한다.
    거석공원 계단 부근을 돌면 매우 큰 거석을 만나게 되는데 위에 인위로 조각한 돌계단이 나오고 이를 따라 올라가면 타이베이 분지를 조망할 수 있다. 좌측 산허리, 산등성에서 우측 산허리선까지 각기 다른 각도에서 타이베이 분지의 아름다움을 볼 수 있으니 코끼리산의 매력이 집중된 곳이라 하겠다. 길목에는 각종 해설안내판이 있어 방문객들에게 산의 특색을 알려주고 있으므로 이곳은 그야말로 자연교실이라 할 수 있다. 길에 비치된 생태 안내대로 따라가다보면 마치 자신이 바로 삼림해설원이 된 것 같다. 코끼리산은 능선, 암벽, 산언덕, 산구릉, 산계곡 등 각종 다양한 환경을 가지고 있고 70여종의 고사리류가 있는데 이들 고사리류는 코끼리산에서 수시로 볼 수 있다. 어떤 것은 나무기둥에 기생해 살고 어떤 것은 암석과 땅에서 자라고 어떤 것은 습한 밀림에 무성하게 덮여있다. 그중 황금갈고리 고사리는 군락이 가장 크고 그 수량이 타이베이에서 가장 많은데 과거 의학이 발달하지 않았을 때 민간에서 이를 지혈약으로 사용했다고 한다. 또한 넓고 햇빛을 향하고 있으며 또 습한 산구릉에는 공룡시대부터 생존해 온 오래된 고사리류인 “필통나무”가 자라고 있다. 필통나무 군락은 타이베이시에서 가장 진귀한 생태특색으로 필통나무가 군락을 이루고 있는 풍경은 전 세계에서 대만 북부에서만 발견된다. 습한 환경에서 달팽이 군락 역시 장관을 이루는데 사문호씨 달팽이, 담배관 달팽이 등은 산 곳곳에서 볼 수 있다. 이는 원래 저해발의 원시활엽림의 면모로 생태가 더욱 다원하고 풍부하며 녹음이 산을 뒤덮고 있으며 여러분의 탐험을 기다린다.
    코끼리산은 해발이 181미터밖에 되지 않아 “정상정복”을 꿈꾸는 사람들에게는 도전성은 덜한 편이다. 코끼리산에 오른 후 만약 체력이 아직 남아있거나 혹은 몸을 더 풀고 싶은 사람은 보도 양쪽에 많은 체력 보강 시설과 폐활량 증강 시설이 있어 이를 이용하면 된다. 정상에 있는 일현정(逸賢亭)에 이르면 체조를 하거나 혹은 활기이 넘치는 어린이들이 뛰어다니는 것을 볼 수 있는데 온 가족이 레져와 운동을 겸하기에 알맞은 곳이다.

    타이베이 신의구(信義區)의 한 모퉁이에 빽빽히 늘어선 낮은 주택건물들. 이렇게 즐비한 건축물들은 대만으로 이주 온사람들의 웃음과 눈물 섞인 영예로운 이야기를 기록하고 있다. 이곳은 바로 당시 타이베이 시의 초기 군인들이 살았던 옛 군인촌인 사사남촌(四四南村쓰쓰난촌)이다. 경제발전과 생활 수준의 연이은 상승에 따라 옛 가옥이 살기 불편하고 좁아서 변화된 수요에 부합하지 않게 되자 1999년 시정부는 주민들을 이주시키고 이곳을 재개발하려 하였다. 그러나 문화계의 권고로 이곳을 신의구 문화회관 및 문화공원으로 기획되었고 2003년 개관하였다. 회관 내부에는 4개의 대칭된 건축물이 있다. 과거에 빼곡히 늘어서 있던 가옥들은 이미 행사나 전시공간으로 활용되고 있는데, 특별전시관, 군인촌 전시관, 전시공연관, 지역마을회관 등을 포함하고 있다. 외관은 여전히 군인촌의 낮고 소박했던 독특한 모습을 보유하고 있다. 그리고 과거의 좁았던 골목길들은 또 다른 복고적인 분위기를 물씬 풍기고 있다. 이곳은 멀리 보이는 타이베이 명소 타이베이101 및 주변의 현대식 건물들과 강렬한 대비를 이루면서 타이베이 시 발전의 아름다운 증거물로 자리하고 있습니다.

  • Tiaomi Historic Trail

    주소:
    Tiaomi Historic Trail, Rice Trail The end of Alley 100, Lane 600, Wuxing Street, Taihe Village, Xinyi Dist., Taipei City Taiwan, R.O.C .

    “Tiao” in Tiaomi means “selling grains” in Chinese and “Tiaomi” means “peddling rice”. During the period between 1821 and 1850 (Emperor Daoguang’s reign), in a move to reduce time spent on transportation and labor, farmers in the Sanchangli area built this narrow mountainous trail as an alternative route to the smoother - yet longer - foot path. There are a total of 500 stone steps on this trail to facilitate quicker transportation of rice in regions like Nangang, Muzha, Shenkeng and Jingmei, and support more frequent trade activities. Since there is a Tiaomi Temple along the trail, the trail becomes its eponym, Tiaomi Historic Trail. “Tiaomi” also means “shouldering rice” in Chinese. Legend has it that due to the steep, treacherous steps, carriers at that time had to rest by the Temple when travelling across the region. To express their gratitude to the God of the Earth for blessing them with a safe journey, they would leave a bowl of rice while resting. As time passed by, the residents built a simple temple using stones to show their respect for the God. After several reconstructions, it became the current “Tiaomi Temple”. There is also the “Dexing Coal Mine Entrance” near the trail. Dexing Coal Mine started its operation about 1897, and reached its operating prime between 1946 and 1948. This was followed by the exhaustion of the coal vein. The site was abandoned, leaving only the mine entrance as a tourist attraction. The stone steps on Tiaomi Historic Trail resurfaced in 2011 along with the establishment of an arch bridge, wooden path and tourist signposts for the Trail.

  • Songshan Cihui Temple

    주소:
    No. 33, Ln. 251, Fude St., Xinyi Dist., Taipei City Taiwan, R.O.C .

    As the Chinese poet Liu Yuxi had famously contemplated, “Mountains are prestigious for the presence of immortals, not for their height; seas are sacred for the inhabitance of dragons, not for their depth”, the Songshan Cihui Temple in Taipei’s Fushou Mountain was founded, and is currently operated, by Guo Ye-zi, a devoted and virtuous Taoist priestess who insists on a career of universal relief through a facility that educates, inspires and purifies its followers. In other words, the temple was constructed out of the founder’s ultimate compassion that urged her to extend self-help to others. Dedicated to “Wuji Yaochi Dasheng Xiwang Jinmu,” or “Mother of the Infinite Jade Pond,” this awe-inspiring, gracefully landscaped temple is nestled amid verdant hills to evoke religious sentiments. That explains why it is a mythical sanctuary for Taoist deities and immortals, a Mcca for Taoists seeking peace of mind, and an intriguing must-visit for tourists. Occupying an area of approximately 33,000 m2, the towering Cihui Temple comprises a group of elaborately structured, five-story buildings flanked by pagoda-style bell towers for an imposing and magnificent effect. The patio outside the temple’s 2nd floor main hall commands a panoramic view of downtown Taipei, which is exciting and unforgettable enough to make you want to linger longer. Patterned after traditional Chinese temples, the main structure is a quaint mixture of the distinctive palatial arts from the Ming and Qing dynasties and modern architectural techniques, ingeniously accentuating the mountain area’s luscious pine woods with its red bricks and yellow rooftops, in a dazzling manner, like a green cocktail garnished with a red cherry.

    If someone ask where the center of Taipei's garment wholesale area is, it is believed that everyone's first response would be "Wufenpu", a place that hundreds of garment wholesale stores gather near Songshan Railway Station. 

    The Wufenpu shopping district originated from the gathering of early central and southern people who made a living in Taipei in Wufenpu. With the remaining rags or unsaleable fabrics of export clothing, they simply processed and sewn them into underwear, children's clothing or rough work clothes and provided them to roadside vendors and retail stores for sale, which gradually made the name of Wufenpu popular.

    Hundreds of garment companies are gathering here. Inexpensive clothing attracts retail traders here to shop for wholesale or retail, and many young people also come to shop because of vivid styles and fashionable design.

  • Thermal Valley

    주소:
    , Beitou Dist., Taipei City Taiwan, R.O.C .

    Located beside Beitou Hot Spring Park, Thermal Valley is one of the sources supplying the area’s hot springs. The sulfuric steam that blankets the valley year-round gives the valley a frightening quality, giving rise to nicknames like “Ghost Lake.” The springs here have the highest temperatures of any in the Datunshan volcano group. With its surreal sulfuric atmosphere, it’s no wonder Thermal Valley was considered one of the “12 great sights of Taiwan” during the Period of Japanese Occupation!

    The “Beitou rocks” (aka Hokutolite or Anglesobarite) in Thermal Valley contain the radioactive element radium. Out of the many thousands of minerals existing in the world, they are the only ones named after a place in Taiwan, and can be found in only two places: Beitou and Tamagawa, Japan. In recent years, the “Beitou Rock Conservation Area” has been established to ensure the protection of these natural rarities. Thus, when visiting Thermal Valley, you not only get to experience “hell” but also gain insight into some rare radioactive rocks!

    Water temperature in Thermal Valley’s hot springs ranges from 80-100℃. The sodium carbonate springs tend to be corrosive, and have come to be known as “Green sulfur springs” and “Sulfur heads.” Visitors used to boil eggs in the hot springs, but the practice has since been prohibited—not only to protect the water quality but to keep tourists from falling in and boiling themselves!

  • Maokong Gondola

    주소:
    No.8, Sec. 2, Xinguang Rd., Wenshan Dist., Taipei City Taiwan, R.O.C .

    With a total length of 4.03 kilometers, the Maokong Gondola is the first gondola system in Taipei City. One-way travel time on the gondola is about 20 to 30 minutes. The gondola ride includes four stops, namely the Taipei Zoo Station, Taipei Zoo South Station, Zhinan Temple Station, and the Maokong Station. It is very easy to ride the Maokong Gondola; after getting off the last stop of the Metro's Wenhu Line—Taipei Zoo Station—walk to the Maokong Gondola's Taipei Zoo Station to take the gondola.

    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. After passing the Zhinan Temple Station, you will enter a steep V-shaped gully; this is the climax of the gondola ride, and is an unforgettable experience.

    The final stop is at Maokong, where numerous tea plantations and tea shops are located. Many visitors specially make the trip here to have tea and chat. Make sure to visit a tea shop and order the famous “Muzha Tieguanyin” or “Wenshan Pouchong tea” when you visit Maokong. The trip will be worth your while when you taste the delicious specialty tea and meal combo, and view the stunning scenery of Taipei Basin.

  • Nangang Mountain System: Xiangshan (Mt. Elephant) Hiking Trail

    주소:
    Xiangshan (Mt. Elephant), Xinyi Dist., Taipei City Taiwan, R.O.C .

    Xiangshan derives its name from its external shape (“xiang” means elephant in Chinese) and is located at the south-eastern section of Xinyi District. Its composition is mainly sandstone, akin to that of Hushan. The tawny cliffs and giant rocks along the path, coupled with numerous natural life forms and birds, make the entire mountain resemble a natural ecological paradise. It’s a great place for the general public to enjoy outdoor leisure time and bask in the beauty of nature.
    Along the trail there are explanatory sign boards providing information to visitors concerning the environment. The diversified cliff and slope terrains form a great nurturing ground for fern-family plants. In particular, the quantity of Taiwanese Cibotium (Cibotium taiwanianum) and Flying Spider-monkey Tree Fern (Cyathea lepifera) ranks top in Taipei City.
    Back in the days when medicine was not as advanced as it is today, Taiwanese Cibotium was commonly used to stop bleeding. The Flying Spider-monkey Tree Fern, on the other hand, is the most valuable ecological feature of Taipei City.
    Standing on the top of Xiangshan, the entire Taipei Basin is right under your eyes. The extension of the ridge reaches into Zhongqiang Park of Xinyi District, and therefore has become the best evening stroll venue for local residents. It is also a great vacation spot for people to relax and relieve stress.

    The Six Giant Rocks
    “Laolaixia” is the name given to Xiangshan’s landscape of peculiar giant rocks. On top of these rocks, the entire view of the bustling Xinyi District is captured; it is a popular spot for photo-taking. The rising sun juxtaposed with Taipei 101 and the slumbering Xinyi District skyscrapers provide endless pictures of enjoyment throughout the day and night.

     

  • Songshan Cultural and Creative Park

    주소:
    No. 133, Guangfu S. Rd., Xinyi Dist., Taipei City Taiwan, R.O.C .

    The 6.6-hectares Songshan Cultural and Creative Park in Taipei’s Xinyi District was completed in 1937 as the Songshan Tobacco Factory, which was one of the seed companies of a monopoly system mandated by the Taiwan Governor-General Office. The premises were one of Taiwan’s pioneers of modern industry, as well as the first professional tobacco plant. A gracefully simple Japanese modernist structure, the factory features meticulously crafted face cams, glasswork and bronze nails that made it arguably a “model factory” at that time. When Japan lost the war in 1945, the Taiwan Provincial Monopoly Bureau took over the factory and renamed it, Songshan Tobacco Factory of Taiwan Provincial Monopoly Bureau. The factory ceased production of cigarettes in 1998 for concerns over urban planning, regulatory changes in the tobacco and liquor marketing system, as well as shrinking demand. It became a relic of the past after being merged into the Taipei Cigarette Plant.

    In 2001, the Taipei City Government named the tobacco factory the city’s 99th historic site and converted it into a park comprising city-designated historic sites (namely the office building, the 1st to 5th warehouses, cigarette plant and boiler room), historic structures (the inspection room, a machinery repair shed and a nursing room) and architectural highlights (the Baroque-style garden, an ecologically landscaped pond, a public bath and a multi-purpose auditorium). For more efficient reuse of space, the Songshan Cultural and Creative Park was built on the historic site as a production base for designers and cultural & creative businesses, as well as a venue for performances and exhibitions. The park introduced to its premises a Taiwan Design Museum and TMSK through partnerships with the Taiwan Design Center and prestigious Taiwanese glasswork label LIULI GONG FANG, respectively, besides a snack bar that was converted from the machinery repair shed.
