How to get there?
Dajia Riverside Park (under Dazhi bridge)
For Training Days :The most convenient way to arrive at the dragon boat location is to take a taxi, as transport to the Dajia Riverside Park is quite limited. Alternatively you can take the take the R34 bus which arrives directly at the dragon boat area or MRT to Xingtian temple and take a taxi from the MRT to the Dragon Boat arena for around 90 TWD.
For The race Days : TMI will be running a free bus departing from TMI school on the race days.

What should I wear/bring?
As the practices will be on the river you will get wet! It is best to wear clothing that you don’t mind getting wet. We recommend shorts, t-shirt, sandals (flip-flops). For the racedays, TMI will provide all members with uniform jersey’s which can also be kept as a memory after the event is over.You will also need to bring any form of photo ID to show you are part of the team.
For any questions students can speak with reception at the Institute.
Happy Paddling!!!
