Huyue Suspension Bridge (虎月吊橋)
Hou-tou Pei (虎頭埤) was Taiwan’s very first reservoir, and over the one hundred years that it has been in existence it has been an object of praise and admiration from scholars and the literati. It was even one of the settings for the Jay Chou (周杰倫) movie The Rooftop (天台). The Huyue Suspension Bridge (虎月吊橋), built in 1905, added an even greater sense of charm to the site, and as it has stretched over the water surface for the past one hundred years, it has been a place to catch the first rays of morning sun or multicolored afterglow of dusk. Walking on the suspension bridge, you can reach a small isle in its central area, upon which is located a pavilion from which to enjoy the landscape and water scene. During non-working days it is common to see visitors sitting leisurely to enjoy the water scene and the boats floating across its surface. On a trip here, as well as enjoying the sights of the suspension bridge, you can take a trail around the lake to enjoy the scenery, or alternatively to hire a swan boat or kayak to leisurely explore some of the lesser visited and lesser seen landscapes within the Hou-tou Pei area. Early morning and at dusk provide the most strikingly beautiful scenes, and the sunrise and sunsets provide an ever-changing environment that will leave visitors spellbound.
