Rustic Railway

The Pingxi Railway line, which links several small districts in Northern Taipei, is probably the most famous railway to non-locals. It owes much of its popularity to a 2011 film, You Are the Apple of My Eye. In the film (which is packed with 1980s nostalgia from start to end), the photogenic but star-crossed couple of the show takes an oh-so-cute road trip, which included walking adorably on a picturesque section of the rail. In practice however, people who attempt this invariably look like clumsy penguins learning to tap-dance on a metal grill. Fortunately, sections of the railway are indeed quite beautiful, so there’s something to do even for those who choose to remain grounded.

Don’t try this at home. Or in public. Or anywhere.
