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

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

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.

Very nice place with a lot of feel if you have watched Spirited Away. The toilets are fairly clean and Im pretty impressed. :)

Unfortunately it is always very very crowded which makes it quite annoying, but the place itself is so beautiful and very local. Also there are a lot of good places where to eat.

Ruifan District
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.

Like other markets they start early and I think with one hours travel from Taipei if u started at 8.30am you would still catch the famous food shops. Even if not open you can catch the scenery.

Stay in taipei, this place is not old or baby friendly. Steep route and long waitint public bus transfer. Not worth visiting unless u're into old heritage houses with average view and awful food.
