Description - What to expect

Meet your tour guide and driver in the afternoon, then take a Jiufen day trip to the northeast part of Taipei and discover the remnants of the gold rush past. Before you reach the town of Jiufen, you will stop by Nanya, which is known for the unique rock formations eroded by seawater, lying along the coastline.

Then, drive past Bay of Two Colors, literally a bay where the sea is split into two colors – yellow and blue. The Chinese name “Ying Yang Sea” is given because the contrasting colors are associated with the Chinese Yin and Yang symbol.

Next to your Jiufen day trip stop by Jinguashi Remains of the 13 Levels. Established in the 1940s, this copper and gold refining plant was shut down in the 1980s due to the exhaustion of mine ore. From far away, this building looks like an abandoned palace and becomes a popular shooting spot for music videos and TV commercials.

Finally, the last stop and also the highlight of this Jiufen day trip, Jiufen itself. Flourished in the 1940s due to the gold mining industry, even though the golden age has long gone, this small town still has lots of stories to tell. The movie “A City of Sadness” directed by award-winning director Hou Hsiao-Hsien, made Jiufen once again a popular, tourist spot in Northern Taiwan.

You may take sit in one of these unique tea shops, and enjoy a picturesque view of the town, or stroll along the street, where you may enjoy a little shopping for the local snacks and souvenirs. If you have a sweet tooth, don’t miss the opportunity to try the famous local snack “Taro Balls”! Your Jiufen day trip ends with return transport to your Taipei hotel in the late afternoon.
