Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Chiufen (Jiufen Old Street), Ruifang, New Taipei

Shuinandong, Jinguashi, and Jiufen are former mining towns in Ruifang District, New Taipei City. The three towns present living records of the history and culture of Taiwan's mining industry, each one distinguished by the different mining methods they adopted: the simple charm of Shuinandong; the tranquility of Jinguashi; and the traces of the miners' nightlife in Jiufen. Though the gold mines are now closed, these towns continue to exert an allure that attracts visitors to visit and dream.
Here you can never miss the most popular local delicacy taro and sweet potato balls made of fresh taro, sweet potato and sticky rice.

Duration: 1 hour 20 minutes

Stop At: Nanya Rock Area, Ruifang, New Taipei

Noted for its fantastic rock formations and sea-eroded coral shore. The entire coastline here is a veritable sculpture garden that illustrates, in stone, the incomparable artistry of weathering and wave action. The patterned stone topography of Nanya, unique in Taiwan, was formed through the weathering of the sandstone that lines the shore. The oxidation of iron ore within the striations of the stone has given it a beautiful striped pattern.

Duration: 10 minutes

Pass By: Yin Yang Sea ()

A bay where the sea is spilt into yellow and blue; these two complementary colors call to mind Chinese Ying and Yang symbol, hence it is also called Yin Yang Sea. In the past, the locals believed the phenomena was caused by chemical runoff. However the recent examination of the waters showed the coloring was caused by the insoluble floating iron ion.

Pass By: Golden Waterfall, Ruifang, New Taipei

One can see water gushing out from underground. After seeping through mining areas and contacting with sulfur, arsenic and copper ores, the redox and iron synthesis transformed the water into a golden acidic mineral water with a tint of orange. Seen from afar it looks like a gigantic wall of golden rock cliff, reputed as the Golden Waterfall by later generations for the spectacle.
The water contains high level of toxic due to its proximity to the abandoned copper smelter, visitors are warned not to get close to the water.

Pass By: Jinguashi 13 Ruins, Ruifang, New Taipei

Dubbed as the Thirteen Levels, the old copper refinery is also called the Potala Palace of Mountain Mines as it looks like a beautiful abandoned palace far away. The parking lot at ShueiNanDongand the lookout pavilion in Changren community provide an incredible view. Music videos of famous songs are shot here, too. The building has the longest gas pipe in the world, which is 2 kilometers in length and 2 meter in diameter. Due to possible fatal accidents, visitors are not permitted to enter the pip.
