    What to Expect
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Shifen Waterfall, No.10 Gankeng Road, Nanshan Village, New Taipei 226 Taiwan

    Start your tour at the spectacular Shifen Waterfall, also known as "little Niagara." With a width of 40-meters it is the broadest waterfall in Taiwan. 

    Duration: 50 minutes

    Stop At: Shifen Old Street, New Taipei Taiwan

    10-minute ride from waterfall lies the railway town - Shifen Old Street. Behold as train passes directly through the bustling town, snack on local delicacies or stroll the streets for the perfect souvenir. Don't miss an opportunity to light your very own sky lantern, a truly unforgettable experience. (The sky lantern cost is not included in this tour)

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Chiufen (Jiufen Old Street), Jishan Street, New Taipei 22450 Taiwan

    Wander through the narrow alleyways and enjoy the specialty street food. Try the delightful Taro Ball dessert, a sweet glutinous rice dessert which will make you eating one after another. After a day of sightseeing, rest your feet at a traditional tea house and sip on a Taiwanese tea while taking in the magical views of Keelung Port at noon. And don't forget to visit the famous A-mei tea house, which looks exactly the same as the one that appears in the famous animation by Miyazaki Hayao: Spirited Away.

    Duration: 2 hours

    Awesome day touring with Henry. The day started out raining and he was prepared with ponchos and umbrellas for us. Henry educated our group about Taiwan’s history and current events. Our driver did an excellent job transporting us safely. I’m very pleased with My Taiwan Tour

    I went with my husband and parents on a small guided tour which is worth it as you can more or less dictate your own pace. Our first stop was at Shifen where we released a lantern carrying our written wishes into the sky. While you are there don't forget to check out the ice
