Treasure Hill by Day

Treasure Hill by day
The view from the riverside bikeway on a gorgeous September day.

I was riding along the riverside bikeway in Taipei 台北 the other day when I stopped to take this photograph of Treasure Hill 寶藏巖 (pinyin: Bǎozàngyán), an illegal hillside community recently transformed into an artist village. I wrote a little more about Treasure Hill in this piece about giant fortune cookies so I won’t repeat myself too much. Suffice to say, it’s a tremendously photogenic place and an interesting feature of the riverside park south of Gōngguǎn Station 公館站. It also has a dark side, but that’s a subject for another post.
