Jiufen is a 1.5hr bus journey from Taipei. It is situated on a hilltop which offers a nice panoramic view of the surroundings. The famous area has to be the Jiufen Old Street which winds through the quaint old shops and teahouses. One can easily...More
Went here with friends - there is so much to do you could spend the entire day on old street and the surrounding streets.

All varieties of crafts, foods, souvenir . You can bargain at some stores, but not a lot since most of them already offers some sort of discount (volume or special). Prices are generally 20 to 30 % cheaper than the US (mid-west) for the comparable...More
It was rainy season... So the steps were wet and the place was crowded with tourists especially tourists from Hong Kong running away from their problems and major riots back home... I still enjoy the food shopping and sight seeing though but I don't see...More
We took a metro to Ruifang and then the bus to Jiufen and it was very easy, so save your money and avoid the tours. The road is very steep and winding and the buses handled it beautifully. The town is an old mining town...More
Very fun area. Jiufen Old Street isn't the easiest to get to via public transportation, but there's a lot of things to eat and explore here. It's also very scenic and larger than I had initially thought.
With its air of historical heritage, Shuijinjiu (ShueiNanDong, Jingguashi, Jiufen) used to be prosperous and glamorous due to mining. Although its magnificent semblance no longer exists, the peaceful and beautiful atmosphere has persisted. With a wave to the age of the gold rush, one can still see a glimpse of its glorious past through the Golden Waterfall. Gazing at the ShueiNanDong Remains of the 13 Levels,
it is like a beautiful palace that was deserted, earning it the name of “Potala Palace of the Mountain Mines”. Probing forward to the mouth of the river is the considerably distinguished Yinyang Sea, with its half gold half bluish green spectacle inspiring countless imaginations of romance. Walking along the streets of the meandering old streets of Jiufen and tasting the various kinds of authentic eateries is the love of tourists. Stepping into the Golden Museum, one can glimpse the historical traces of the mining industry culture, reminiscing of past glories from its museum, living quarters, and shrine remains. The unassuming mountain city of Houtong used to be a mining village. With the call of cat lovers, volunteer groups were established to create a friendly environment for cats and turned Houtong into a cat village for cat lovers.
