Hutoupi (虎頭埤) was Taiwan's first reservoir, and has over a century-long history. It is dubbed "Little Sun Moon Lake" after the country's largest lake, and serves as Tainan's back garden. A scene of Taiwanese pop star Jay Chou's musical film The Rooftop (天台) was filmed here. The Huyue Suspension Bridge (虎月吊橋) was built in 1905, adding more charm and flavor to the lake. The scenic paths around the lake are well suited to both walking and cycling, and the excellent leisure facilities, barbecue area and camping area are very popular. As well as enjoying the scenery from the lakeside paths, tourists can pedal the swan boats or paddle the canoes leisurely about on the surface of the water. Dawn and dusk are the best times for viewing the scenery at Hulupi, and many find the transformation of the lake surface at sunrise and sunset enchanting. Every summer when the Golden Shower Trees (阿勃勒) blossom, the forest is filled with their magnificent flowers, and the petals reflect on the water's surface like a golden rain, creating a delightful scene that takes people's breath away.
