Took a half day trip to Jiufen old street. The road to jiufen was quite twisty but it was well worth it. There is plenty of store that sell street food and souvenir. You can also do some tea drinking and enjoy the beautiful scenery.

Thought We would find a beautiful old city with old houses. Instead we found a crowded street with lots of different local food. So if that’s what you’re looking for you’re the right place. If not, you could be rather disappointed.

of its glorious past through the Golden Waterfall.
