#1 of 16 in Parks in Taoyuan
Water Body Nature / Park
Walk over the great dam at Shimen Reservoir for panoramic views of the surrounding mountains. Head to the nearby park for cycling, walking, and picnics, or grab a bite at the Hakka restaurant offering highland cuisine. Bird-watchers should look out for the endemic Taiwan whistling thrush, Japanese white-eyes, light-vented bulbuls, and many other species (a museum in the vicinity exhibits descriptions and sightings of local birds). Dress warmly: the winds at this altitude can be harsh. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Shimen Reservoir and many more Taoyuan attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Taoyuan holiday planner.
