It’s been a few months since I arrived at this district in New Taipei. This place is recognized in Taiwan as its Ceramic capital.
Here’s a list of some of the popular Tourist Attractions in Yingge 鶯歌 District that I have explored so far…
The Origin of Yingge’s Name
Did you know that this district got its name from a rock? According to a legend, Koxinga the Chinese general of the Ming Dynasty shot down a giant bird thus turning it into the stone that stands today.

High-quality ceramics can be found in here. This old street is always packed during weekends and during holidays too.

The General Admission fee is 80NT$. This museum boasts of ancient and modern ceramics. It even features a timeline that indicates the origin of pottery making in Yingge.

> Da’an 大安溪 River Cycling Route

> San Ying Park 三鶯陶瓷河濱公園
> Yuānshān / Lushan Scenic Area 鳶山風景區
This is part of Sanxia District but this is only 6 kilometers from Yingge, so I decided to include this in the list.
I climbed this mountain on my bike without any hint on how high this is and was completely caught off guard of its steepness. You can also hike up to the top if you prefer. If you’d rather choose to be on a scooter, then that would be better. You can park your bike/scooter upon reaching “the Bell”. Check out the video here:
