about Group Tour: Jiufen


The gold rush hastened the village of Jiufen into a prosperous gold mining town until the 1950s, when mining was discontinued and Jiufen itself went into sharp decline. During this shared tour to Jiufen, you will be on the road with other like-minded travellers, peeking into its golden days merely a few decades ago with visits to several other sites that contributed to the heyday of gold mining industry in Taiwan.

Yehliu Geological Park is home to some of the most famous eroded rock formations in the world, where you will be amazed by some of the finest works of art created by Mother Nature. Golden Waterfall is a result of the combination of regular rainfall in this mining area and the abundance of heavy metal elements deposited in the riverbed. Gold Ecological Park gives you an insightful look into the gold mining industry at its heyday, and Shuinandong Smelter will whisper to you its history of prosperity and decline. At the time, many restaurants and tea houses were opened up on Jiufen Old Street to supply meals to the hungry miners. While you wander your way down to Jiufen Old Street, you will experience the nostalgic charms that have been frozen since the 60s. Houtong was once a thriving coal town and later forgotten due to the decline of the industry. Today, it is home to literally hundreds of cats and therefore known as the “Cat Village.” Before calling it a day, we will make one last stop at Shifen Old Street for you to get a glimpse of the first, once-bustling coal town in the area which still retains the charm of yesteryear.
