Xining North Road, New Taipei, Taiwan
The Tamsui River begins just north of Banqiao District from where it flows northwest before emptying into the Taiwan Strait. Given Taiwan’s mountainous geology, most rivers flow east-west, making the Tamsui one of Taiwan’s few rivers with a north-south flow. Known to suffer from industrial and municipal pollution, cleanup efforts have been launched as well as projects to improve access and create green space along the river banks.
