As many of you know, Bitan, at the end of the Xindian MRT line was closed for a while. It’s been open for a while but I wanted to let people know that some restaurants and cafes have opened recently and they are quite attractive. The whole area has been given a facelift and gone are the grubby metal shack stalls. Instead are outdoor decks with cozy wicker chairs and canvas sail roofs. There are also some smaller stalls in quaint little booths decorated with little seaside-park touches and colors: this is not a night market look and there is as far as I can see no KTV allowed.
The riverpark itself has new paths and surfaces and landscaping. Lots of work continues apace but it is a pleasant little area for an afternoon or evening meal or cup of tea as you look out over the river and the undeveloped hills across the water.
Overall, it is a great little addition to the city.
