Wednesday:open 24 hours




The167-meter long Rainbow Bridge lies across the Keelung River, connecting Xinming Road in the Neihu District and Raohe Street in the Songshan District. Suspended at the center by four steel cables, the uniquely S-shaped, red-painted bridge has an arch structure reinforced with steel ribs, complete with wooden railings. Generously paved with pink and pale blue tiles, the bridge is a modern landmark and also a public facility that can only be accessed by foot and by bicycle. People are often seen strolling on the bridge, which is a shortcut between Neihu and the Raohe Night Market and Songshan Railway Station, drastically saving travel time for those living in the Songshan and Neihu Districts. The Rainbow Bridge attracts many amateur photographers at night, when its illumination adds much to the beauty of the city’s nightscape. Meanwhile, the Blue Highway’s terminal wharf established here also helps to draw crowds to the bridge, making it an emerging, popular tourist destination for those visiting Taipei.

    Bridge is a sight to see


    There is no sight that can match a well-built bridge, Taipei has several. The Rainbow Bridge lights up at night in a variety of colors.The stroll from the MRT is worth it. There's also a well-known night market nearby where you can do some shopping. The bridge is especially colorful at Lantern Festival, the 15th (and last) day of the Lunar New Year celebrations.

    Nice walk around


    Nice walk around the bridge to take photos with words like Love I heart you. Nothing else since the red bridge didn't light up when I was there.

    Relaxing Walk


    I came here alone during the day and it was quiet and relaxing. It can be good for walking with family, friends or just some romantic time with your sweetie.

    Spectacular - a sight to behold at night


    We were fortunate that our ship departed 10pm so we were able to get the full benefit of the beautiful light show that is the Rainbow Bridge, this after the best city tour by 2 university students from Like It Formosa guides (see separate review). Thanks you Taiwan
