about [Small Group] Jiufen Shared Tour

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. Shuinandong Smelter will whisper to you its history of prosperity and decline. 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. 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. Before calling it a day, we will make one last stop at Shifen Old Street in Pingxi for you to get a glimpse of the first, once-bustling coal town in the area which still retains the charm of yesteryear. Releasing a sky lantern on the rail here will be a highlight in your Taiwan trip!
