Description

Crescent Bridge is 1,133-m long including its approach lane and connects to Banqiao 435 Art Zone and Xinzhuang Old Street; the Bridge is the longest double spanning steel arch bridge in Taiwan. On the bridge, four distinctive styles of observation and resting terraces have been planned out. There is also the exceedingly popular transparent bridge flooring – Sky Walkway (60m-long; made with transparent tempered glass; and offers a bird’s-eye view of the Dahan River below to experience the visual stimulation), which has frequently attracted tourists to linger here to take photos (little reminder: bikes are not allowed up on the Sky Walkway). On the other hand, visiting the area nearby Crescent Bridge at night will allow you to appreciate the Light’s Rhythm light sculpture show. With the lighting accentuating the graceful curve of bridge’s arch and the overall scenery that extends out from the lighting’s reflections over the riverbanks, Crescent Bridge has become a new popular landmark for many tourists and photography enthusiasts. On some occasions, there will also be musical performance at the little plaza in the sky – isn’t it a pleasant life experience as you take a walk on the bridge while listening to the melodious music?
