Bitan

Bitan (zh-cpw|c=碧潭|p=bìtán|w=pi-t'an), historically called "Shi-Bitan"(石碧潭), is a tourist spot in Sindian, Taipei County, Republic of China (Taiwan). Bitan literally means Green Lake, referring to where the Sindian River widens to form the lake. There is a famous suspension bridge that is used only by pedestrians. The bridge can be seen on the crest of Sindian. There are many restaurants, carnival activities, and pedal boats in the area.

Bitan can easily be reached via Taipei's MRT system. The lake is just a few footsteps southwest of the Xindian station (south terminal station of the green line).
