This year's Bitan Water Dance takes place in April and May, making this time of year the greatest for seeing fireflies. In Bitan, tourists can thus do more than just ride swan boats and see water dance performances; they can also visit the neighboring Hemei Mountain Trail (和美山步道) to see fireflies.
There are also many riverside restaurants with beautiful scenery along the Bitan River.Photo reproduced from BALI waterfront restaurant (水岸BALI景觀餐廳) Facebook
