The Hydraulic Engineering Office of Taipei recommends the city’s riverside
parks as ideal locations to view the annual Taipei 101 New Year’s fireworks spectacular.
The top locations, according to the office, are Rainbow Riverside Park between the Minquan Bridge and MacArthur First Bridge, and on the Rainbow Bridge that connects Songshan and Neihu districts.
The riverside parks around the Dazhi Bridge are also ideal locations, since they are north of the Taipei 101 skyscraper and are less likely to have the fireworks display blocked by the resulting smoke.
People who choose to enjoy the Taipei 101 fireworks extravaganza at these particular riverside parks can also get a great view of the pyrotechnics display put on by the Miramar shopping center in the Dazhi area. [FULL STORY]
