This library is done completely with wood. Really peaceful and people are so educated. There are also people doing painting in front of the bridge.

Beautiful architecture and a lovely environment to read a book. Take train to Beitou Station to change to Cincinnati Beitou Station and follow the signs there. Nice place to relax, rest the feet and read a book with a view.
