Panong suspension bridge café – Jing Long Café

leave a comment »

A great place to dine at and just chill and relax. It is just next to the Panong suspension bridge which lights up at night, so come by for dinner to get a picturesque view of the bridge from the café. There is a mini-bar in the café and you can try the owner’s special cocktail concoctions.  The owner is so nice. He lent us his personal laptop to access the internet. The café is currently installing wi-fi facilities for its customers.

Interior of café

Cool bar area where they make their drinks. the owner will sometimes flash neon spotlights on the ceiling which form interesting patterns, giving a very disco-like feel to the café.

This is a beautiful artwork by famous cartoonist __ who used to live in  Neiwan. this area is for customers to rest and relax and maybe surf the net. they are considering of changing it to a 6 –seater dining table for customers who prefer to sit crossed-leg Japanese style while they dine.

this café homemake their own ice cream with their own ice-cream making machine. There are many flavours from chocolate, strawberry to yam and sesame.  I suggest you take the fruity or sour ones such as passionfruit and sour plum because this kind of ice cream is made with a higher content of water rather than milke so flavours such as chocolate and sesame wouldn’t taste that good. A unique flavour which can only be found in Penghu & Neiwan is the cactus flavoured ice cream. I can’t really describe how it tastes like, the closest I can think of  is aloe vera. It doesn’t have a very strong flavorful taste but nonetheless do give it a try.

You can choose to sit outside where you can get a scenic view of the panong suspension bridge and its surronding hills and rivers. Look at these pictures! Isn’t it a lovely place to spend an afternoon having tea?

Artistic interior design with flowers and folded paper cranes hanging from the ceiling, making this place really homely.

Panong suspension bridge

with one comment

Narrower than Neiwan’s bridge. You almost feel like you are walking on a tightrope. All I could think of was. I’m tarzan of the jungle!! Haha. Anyway this is a magnificent bridge for taking far-range pictures. I love the sound of the gushing stream below me. This bridge leads to a flight of stairs and a hiking trail up into the mountains.

There are several suspension bridges in Taiwan. I have been to the one in Shifen, but I like this better because it’s narrower and a little less sturdy, you could really feel that you are hanging up in mid-air.

Neiwan’s hanging suspension bridge

We crossed the Neiwan hanging bridge. It was so windy and cooling standing on the bridge and we could hear the gushing of waves against the rocks from the stream below us. Against the backdrop of a full moon, the whole scenery was like from a dream.  So serene and so mystical, I didn’t want to leave.
