About the tour

Take a step back in time on this trip to the towns of Jiufen and Pingxi, two charming, old-world destinations, great for romantic outings, nostalgic walks, and dining in traditional restaurants and teahouses. These two historic towns, just a stone』s throw away from Taipei, are ideal for a unique look into the past. Jiufen, famous for having been an inspiration for the Miyazaki classic Spirited Away, is located in the mountains of the northeast coast. From the town you have amazing views over the coast. Pingxi is best known for the Pingxi Branch Railway and the annual Sky Lantern Festival, during which thousands of visitors send send floating paper lanterns into the air with their wishes written on them to the heavens. You』ll have an opportunity to send your own wish! Both towns have interesting histories as former centers of mining -- gold-mining in Jiufen, and coal mining in Pingxi. After the decline of the mining industry, both have made a stunning revival as popular tourist attractions and centers of historical culture. This tour will allow you to bask in the old-town atmosphere, take in beautiful scenery, and learn a thing or two about the area』s cultural heritage.
