Danshui River Mangrove Conservation Area
This rather rare and, to some, odd attraction is just south of the Hongshulin MRT station. It's rarity lies in the fact that is the only publicly accessible mangrove swamp of the type shuibizai. These plants will only grow in the salty waters of estuaries, and are generally in areas that are hard to reach.
The are is a great place for watching birds, so ornithologists should be sure to bring binoculars. Furthermore, the swamp is home to some thirty species of crab, some of which live only here. The visitor center is the only access point to the swamp and can give you any and all information you need.
