Taiping Sky Bridge (太平雲梯), Taiwan’s longest suspension bridge, in Meishan, Chiayi County, will officially open on September 23 with tickets only available online. Ticket sales for the opening day will begin on August 31.
Tickets for the Taiping Sky Bridge cost NT$100 (US$3.2) for adults, NT$80 for students and those in groups of 15 or more, NT$50 for children and the elderly, and NT$30 for Chiayi residents. Meishan residents receive free entrance.
The online booking system will track orders so that if a user orders tickets three times but fails to show up at the bridge, he or she will be blocked from using the website in the future.
The bridge that runs through the mountains near Alishan National Scenic Area was inaugurated on August 20. It rises 1,000 meters above sea level and spans 281 meters.
130 people will be admitted to cross the bridge every half hour. The Taiping Sky Bridge will be closed every Wednesday for maintenance.
Next year the Taiwan Lantern Festival (台灣燈會) will be held in Chiayi, which will highlight the bridge.
Individuals and groups of 15 or more can purchase tickets up to 30 days in advance at http://www.tpticket.tw/.
The site is only in Chinese. The left side is for individual ticket orders (each person can purchase up to four tickets at a time), while the right side is for groups of 15 or more.
