Most visitors head to the districts’ old streets and their hot springs, but they are often unsure of how organize their visits, city officials said. The New Taipei City Government has asked the central government for NT$380 million (US$12.9 million) from the Forward-looking Infrastructure Development Program to help fund a revitalization project. The second phase would focus on linking the two districts, they said, adding that they hope to begin work on the project next year if the city gets the funding. Nearby Zhongshan Hall would also be renovated, and a new bathhouse and foot bath facility built for hot springs tourists, Chang said. The parking lot could serve as an important juncture between the two districts as visitors to the two districts pass by it, Chang said.
