Xindian 新店區 is one of Taipei's southern districts. It's famous for its mountains, lakes and the river with the same name. The district is mostly rural in the south and urban in the north, where most of its population is located. Here are the must see buildings and parts of Xindian (my personal recommendations): Xindian Old Street and Bitan.
