TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — This photo is of a new rainbow-colored suspension bridge for tourists that will be opening in central Taiwan next month.

The 342-meter suspension bridge, which leads to the Double Dragon Waterfalls in Nantou County's Xinyi Township, is set to open to tourists on April 1. The bridge hangs 110 meters above the ground, the equivalent to 30 stories, and is the highest and tallest suspension bridge open to tourists in Taiwan, according to the county.

The Nantou Country Tourism Office said the most popular spots in the scenic area are the Double Dragon Trail, suspension bridge, and Double Dragon Waterfalls. The design of the bridge, which was built at a cost of NT$55 million, is intended to give travelers the feeling of walking on a rainbow, with the colors changing every 50 meters, as they take in the coiling Double Dragon Waterfalls and the vast valley below.

The bridge opens from Tuesday to Sunday each week from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Only 250 people will be allowed to walk on the bridge each day and visitors to the scenic area are capped at 1,500 per day.

Adult tickets are NT$100, complimentary tickets are NT$70, and tickets for seniors aged 65 and over are NT$30. Included with the ticket is a shuttle bus ride to the bridge.

Due to the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, visitors are being asked to take their temperatures, disinfect their hands, and if necessary wear face masks.
