Where to enjoy nature in Hsinchu (Part II)

If you are looking for a place to rest from always busy city life, there is a restaurant in the mountains of Hsinchu. The place is called Xin Xian Forest and the view there is really beautiful.

The entrance isn't free but it's definitely worth to come. You can enjoy your walk among beautiful nature, take some pictures and exchange your ticket for some cold drinking in this hot summer weather.

They have huge park, a path among bamboo forest, little river and a lot of place for kids to run. In the autumn you can enjoy the changing colors of bald cypress and maple trees. 
They have small rose garden and you can find some fruits and even vegetables growing there.

Another place to visit is Green Grass Lake (Qingcao Lake). It is the oldest scenic spot in Hsinchu which was originally build as a dam in 1956. In 1987 the government turned it into recreational area.

The bridge can bring you to little island in the middle of the lake, where you can take a sit and watch the beautiful scenery around.

The place is not big and nothing interesting around, good only for a walk around. Anyway there was still many people hidding in the shadow to watch city view behind the water.
The only thing I didn't like was that really big ants walking everywhere...

A Hsinchu Park near zoo has a small lake, Confucius Temple and some cherry trees which blossom in October and March.

The Zhubei beach pavilion is always full of people.
There are also many people selling food on the entrance.

If you don't want to go to the beach, you can as well spend time near the river. There are plenty of rocks on the river in Hsinchu called Tofu Rocks. Grassland around can be a nice place for picnic too. Kids have a lot of place to run around and you can enjoy nature. If you are tired of city and buildings, you can go there to watch sunset.
