One of Taipei's most easily accessible scenic spots, the area around the Bitan (Green Lake) is a must for anyone wanting to escape the madness of the inner city. Located at the very southern end of the red-green MRT line at Xindian station, the area is quite large.
There is a small street market and many different restaurants offering local food. There are also many activities possible on and around the lake itself, such as hiking and renting a paddle boat. The main attraction is the suspended footbridge that offers a lovely view of the lake, the river and the surrounding forests and mountains. The area around the Bitan is definitely a place to spend and entire day to relax away from the city.
