    Itinerary
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Yeh Liu Geo Park, No.167-1, Kangton Rd. Yeh Liu Village, New Taipei 207 Taiwan

    Yehliu Geological Park (野柳地質公園) resides within a cape 1.7km long and is home to some of the most famous eroded rock formations in the world.

    Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

    Stop At: Golden Waterfall, Jinguashi village, Ruifang District, New Taipei Taiwan

    Golden Waterfall is located near the Gold Ecological Park (黃金博物園區) in Jinguashi. Although real gold flowing from these falls would be too good to be true, the water is certainly a beautiful gold color as a result of the combination of regular rainfall in this mining area and the abundance of heavy metal elements deposited in the riverbed.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Chiufen (Jiufen Old Street), Jishan Street, New Taipei 22450 Taiwan

    With an unmatched old town atmosphere and seaside flair, Jiufen (九份) is a must see spot when visiting northern Taiwan. Always teeming with tourists, you might notice that Japanese people make up a huge proportion of the crowds gathered. Many are keen to catch a glimpse of the setting of Hayao Miyazaki's Academy Award winning “Spirited Away”, especially the iconic red lanterns. This is also a film mecca for lovers of Taiwanese film, especially fans of Hou Hsiao-hsien's “A City of Sadness” (悲情城市), which utilized Jiufen as the backdrop to the events of the 228 Incident. Given Hou’s recent award of Best Director in the 2015 International Cannes Film Festival for his new film “The Assassin”, we expect even more people will make their way here in years to come.

    Duration: 2 hours

    Stop At: Shifen Waterfall, No.10 Gankeng Road, Nanshan Village, New Taipei 226 Taiwan

    Shifen Waterfall (十分瀑布) is the most renowned cascading waterfall in Taiwan.

    Duration: 40 minutes

    Stop At: Shifen Old Street, New Taipei Taiwan

    Shifen Old Street is a bustling hub for those eager to get a glimpse of an old railroad town which still retains the charm of yesteryear. Originally built to transport coal, the Shifen Old Street stop has now become one of the most popular on the Pingxi rail-line. It is easy to see why so many are drawn here - local food, souvenir shops and puffing trains add to the charm of this little gem, as well as make it a fantastic place for photography.

    My driver was Martin. He was very friendly, knowledgeable and told me many things about Taiwan besides that of the tour. He even helped me pre arrange taxis for the remainder of my stay in Taipei! I highly recommend this tour!

    Geopark was interesting. Although the day was intensely hot in August, we enjoyed people watching and interacting with small groups of families who were on vacation here. It was a unique geographical landscape with the socio-phenomenon of a small seaside attraction. The rest of

    It was great. We visited more places than i thought and though the Geopark was very crowded, our guide got us in quickly, and made sure we saw the intro video in English. It was a long day, but we did so many things that would have been harder if we were doing it ourselves.
