Before searching the best places to see countdown-firework, there are some tips you should know.
Taipei Metro Map
1.      Taipei MRT serves all the night of New Year Eve. Therefore, you don’t need to worry the public transportation if you live with the service range of Taipei MRT.
2.      Monsoon come from the northeast. Since there will be lots of smoke during the firework, the direction where you watch 101 matters

        For the places to watch countdown-firework, the key is not where is the best place, but how long can you wait. If I told you that the best place to see the countdown of New Year Time is the intersection of 7th Ave and Broadway, you would ask how long do you need to wait. The information is public. The better the place is, the much crowded the place is. Therefore, in additional to the direction and pictures for these places, please also note the estimated time you need to wait.

Direction: Take MRT to Xianshan station and follow the hiking path to the observation desk(about 1 hour from the MRT station).

        Definitely, Xiagshan is the best place to see 101 countdown-firework because it locates at the southeast corner of Taipei 101 and it is at the same height of Taipei 101. However, everybody knows it. Photographers wait over 24 hours in the narrow path. It is very difficult to find a place the time of countdown-firework.

Direction: Take MRT or Train to Songshan Station (Green Line) and go north, through the Rainbow Bridge, to the north bank of Keelung River (about 0.5 hour from the MRT station).

Rainbow Bridge
       If you don’t want to waste too much time waiting the best place, this the best place for you. In additional to the large space of the river bank, at which you may arrive 30 minutes before the countdown-firework, you will pass by Raohe  night market and Rainbow Bridge on the way to the north bank of Keelung River.
