New Taipei City 新北市

The newly founded city of New Taipei is an integral part of the Taipei Metropolitan area and surrounds Taipei City on all sides. Formerly known as Taipei County (台北縣), New Taipei City (pronounced Xīnběi Shì in Mandarin) is home to more than 3,500,000 residents, and consists of industrial districts Xinzhuang and Shulin, commuter suburbs Yonghe, Zhonghe, and Banqiao, mountainous regions Shenkeng and Xindian, coastal regions Tamsui, Ruifang, and Fulong, as well as many other districts and locales all worth a visit.

Most of New Taipei can be accessed conveniently by Taipei's public transit systems, including the Taipei MRT metro system and various bus and train services.
