Overview
Visit the historic town of Jiufen (Chiufen) on a half-day tour of Taiwan’s Northeast Coast, and discover picturesque teahouses, homes, and cobblestone streets set high in the mountains. Passing some of Northern Taiwan’s scenic highlights on your way to Jiufen, you’ll also get a glimpse of Taiwan’s fascinating history and traditional culture. Door-to-door transport means a convenient day of exploring.
Highlights
  • Combine Jiufen (Chiufen) with Bitou Cape and cover top highlights
  • Travel to a National Scenic Area for dramatic coastal scenery
  • Visit a historic village to experience classic Taiwan
  • Explore in comfort aboard a climate-controlled coach
What to Expect
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.

Dear Exploration762256, Thank you for take your time to write a review. We are sorry that our service did not meet your expectation. Due to a limit duration of the tour, we are afraid it is not possible to spend much time at each attraction. However, our tour guide should have provided more information about the attractions that you visited. We will review the tour guide's performance to avoid this situation from happening again.

This was not a guided tour but more of a chauffeur service. The 'guide' was kind but it's more of a pick up and drop off service. We stopped on the way to take some pictures. The stop at Jiufen was short and we were left alone for an hour to do our own thing which is good.

One hour drive from Taipei city. The day was steaming hot and the town packed with visitors seemingly all from Japan, Korea and China. It’s quite a task to find a car park. We passed one below the town but the steep walk up would not have been pleasant in such heat. We chose a
