Jiufen is actually quite far from Taipei. However there is public bus to reach there (Jing Gua Shi if not mistaken). It is up on hill so be ready for some dizzy rides up and down. There are a lot of shops, mostly souvenirs and...More
The Old Street is chock a block with shops selling souvenirs with little variation from one shop to another. It's on a hillside and there are some 400 steps from bottom to top. One street goes up and down, another goes along the hillside. And...More

Tourists crowd the sidewalks! Stores hawk food and wares! Buses and mopeds zip by. The lights. The sounds.
Seriously, if this is your scene, it doesn’t get my nuttier than here, even Harajuku! Fun if you are in the right mood.
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. Gazing at the ShueiNanDong Remains of the 13 Levels,
it is like a beautiful palace that was deserted, earning it the name of “Potala Palace of the Mountain Mines”. Probing forward to the mouth of the river is the considerably distinguished Yinyang Sea, with its half gold half bluish green spectacle inspiring countless imaginations of romance. Walking along the streets of the meandering old streets of Jiufen and tasting the various kinds of authentic eateries is the love of tourists. Stepping into the Golden Museum, one can glimpse the historical traces of the mining industry culture, reminiscing of past glories from its museum, living quarters, and shrine remains. The unassuming mountain city of Houtong used to be a mining village. With the call of cat lovers, volunteer groups were established to create a friendly environment for cats and turned Houtong into a cat village for cat lovers.
