Gosh! We loved this place. It was crammed full of people (we were there on a holiday) but the smells and tastes were amazing. I would suggest going there with a guide if you can as I am not sure that I would have tried...More

非常に有名な観光地です。 台北に行ったら是非訪ねて欲しいです。 ただ、バスで片道2時間程かかるので 早朝から行く事をオススメします。 Very famous sightseeing place in Taipei. Super recommend place but here is so far from city by bus in 2hours in haif way to better going here in the early morning.

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

Nice place to walk around, but avoid weekends! Too much people in the evenings. Best go early mornings before the tourist busses arrive. Don't miss the Temple down from the old street! Beautiful!

Walking thru this meandering street lined with shops brings one back to the childhood days - fun n happiness filled. You can find some of the best food here - taro balls, meatballs, etc.

Today my wife and I and some friends visited the Jiufen old street. First let me tell you it is a place you must visit early in the morning because the crowds are there by midday. The scenery on top of the mountain is a...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.

Ruifan District
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,

Like other markets they start early and I think with one hours travel from Taipei if u started at 8.30am you would still catch the famous food shops. Even if not open you can catch the scenery.

Stay in taipei, this place is not old or baby friendly. Steep route and long waitint public bus transfer. Not worth visiting unless u're into old heritage houses with average view and awful food.
