Meet a driver at your Taipei hotel and then board a coach heading toward Taiwan’s Northeast Coast, where you’ll see the lush coastal cliffs of Bitou Cape. From there, continue to Nanya, following a coastline that’s dotted with rock formations and eroded coral. You’ll also catch sight of the Bay of Two Colors, with bright contrasting waters created by a historic mine.

Step off the bus in the former gold mining town of Jiufen (Chiufen), where houses are closely packed on steep mountainsides—a fascinating glimpse of a traditional Taiwanese community. You’ll have time to soak up the historic atmosphere of Jiufen (Chiufen) by wandering the cobblestone streets on foot before boarding the coach for the return trip to Taipei, where this tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.

Charming place to visit

Nowadays the location is popular thanks to a movie telling the story of this village. Main activity - Ulong tea testing, walking through the old streets and enjoying terrific views to the ocean from the top of the city!
