About the tour

Discover the golden age of mining history in Taiwan

Experience the nostalgic charm of the picturesque town on the hill

Guaranteed departure (from 1 guest)

Hotel pick-up and drop-off is available (within city limits)


Immerse yourself in the nostalgic atmosphere of 1940s.

Far from the bustling urban life, these small towns have their own charms and flavors. Jiufen is one of them, a hillside town that was once prosperous during the boom of gold mining.

In this tour, you will learn about the mining history of Taiwan, and enjoy a scenic tour along the stunning Northeast Coast.

Meet your tour guide and driver in the afternoon, then take a ride to the northeast part of Taipei and discover the remnants of the gold rush past.

Before you reach the town of Jiufen, you will stop by Nanya, which is known for the unique rock formations eroded by sea water, lying along the coastline.

Then the bus will drive past Bay of Two Colors, literally a bay where the sea is split into two colors – yellow and blue. The Chinese name “Ying Yang Sea” is given because the contrasting colors are associated with the Chinese Yin and Yang symbol.

Next, stop by Jinguashi Remains of the 13 Levels. Established in the 1940s, this copper and gold refining plant was shut down in the 1980s due to the exhausting of mine ore. From far away, this building looks like an abandoned palace, and becomes a popular shooting spot for music video and TV commercials.

Finally, the last stop and also the highlight of this tour – Jiufen. Flourished in the 1940s due to the gold mining industry, even though the golden age has long gone, this small town still has lots of stories to tell. The movie “A City of Sadness” directed by award winning director Hou Hsiao-hsien, made Jiufen once again brought to people’s attention, and has become the most popular tourist spot in Northern Taiwan.

You may take a sit in one of these unique tea shops, and enjoy a picturesque view of the town. Or stroll along the street, where you may enjoy a little shopping for the local snacks and souvenirs. If you have a sweet tooth, don’t miss opportunity to try the famous local snack “Taro Balls”!

Your tour ends with return transport to your Taipei hotel in the late afternoon.
