The scenery on the bridge is really beautiful! On the Taiping Cloud Ladder, you can see various natural landscapes such as sunset, sunset glow or the sea of clouds, and the well-known 36 bends of Meishan, which fainted along the way, are also completely displayed in front of you. When the visibility is good, it is said that it can continue along the Jianan Plain Seeing the Taiwan Strait and taking children to get to know Taiwan, it is really a good place to educate and enjoy. Unfortunately, Jeffy's geography is not good, so I don't know which side is the south, south, west, northwest on the bridge!

I wonder if anyone is born afraid of walking on a rickety suspension bridge? But don't be surprised! According to the official website, the Taiping Sky Bridge can withstand strong earthquakes of magnitude 7 and gusts of magnitude 16. Walk to the other end of the bridge for about 5-10 minutes, there are two routes to go down the mountain, they areYunzhinan Road (40 minutes in total)With the lighterSlow downhill on the return journey (15 minutes in total), Both ends can reach Taiping Old Street. Yunzhinan Road will first climb the Haohanbo of 268 steps for about 10 minutes before starting to go downhill. If you climb up, you should see more and more beautiful scenery. If you have time, you can stay a little longer and walk on the mountain. It's a pity that we didn't have enough time that day, so we went lazily and went downhill and downhill ?

After going down the mountain, we came to the nearby Taiping Old Street to eat specialties. My parents insisted on buying the grilled corn from Taiping Old Street for us to eat. After eating, we found it was really fragrant, cheap and delicious ?
