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.

    Great trip, glad I went! Friendly and bilingual driver. Some quick stops at the ocean for pics, a good account of time in town.

    From Nanya Rocks to Jiufen, overall amazing experience! Worth the price and the view is just incredible. Would reccomend it to those that just wants to get away for a fresh breath of air and walk around historic sites. Our tour guide Tony was very helpful and nice!!

    Tony was amazing! Loved the trip! The scenery was great and loved the view. Also it was the perfect amount of time at each location

    I forgot to ask for his name but he was very knowledgeable for the whole trip from the start of my trip to the end! I had a wonderful journey, given with enough time, like really enough time to walk around and enjoy the scenery! Quite a history on the Northeast Coast and Jiufen itself! I was amazed the entire trip!

    We took this tour on a day-trip to Taiwan. It's a fast-paced tour that fits a lot in a short period of time. Tony, our tour-guide, was attentive, friendly, informative, and went out of his way to ensure we had a great experience. I would highly recommend the tour, and our guide Tony, to ANYONE looking for a great experience in Taiwan.

    We had a wonderful visit to Jiufen, and the surrounding areas. Our guide was very knowledgeable and fun to travel with (thanks Frank!). We got to see things we wouldn't have known about of we'd gone by ourselves, perfect for those new to Taiwan.

    So much fun! Tour Guide was so nice and funny, always making sure that we learn about the places, rather than only driving us there to take some photos. A fantastic experience. Thanks!

    Great half day tour! Lots of interesting facts and great scenery, with a good humoured host who entertained us all

    A visit to Jiufen is to experience total chaos! Tour buses are not allowed to Jiufen so we were dropped off at a bus depot to be transferred to bigger tourist buses. Except some of these buses are not tourist buses but buses similar to what's being used at airports so seating was limited. Some tourists ended up standing on an uphill trip to Juifen. Not ideal for middle aged or older tourist. I don't know why they do not provide everyone with proper tourist bus since I am sure we all paid the same fare for the trip. Once you reach Juifen, its difficult to appreciate the village as it's foggy and raining. I believe it rains in Juifen 200 days in a year so I dont understand why no effort is made to ensure the whole alley where all the shops are located are covered. Some stores have awning but others don't so navigating the alley that is crowded with a lot of tourists while trying to hold an umbrella is not ideal and certainly far from an enjoyable experience. The worst part came when we were to depart Juifen. We were ready to leave a little past 5 so we went to the bus stop to board the tourist buses again except that apparently, the last bus that we opted not to take since it did not have seating for everybody in the tour group was the last bus from Juifen. There is no sign anywhere about the times that these buses run and our tour guide didnt seem to know as well and not being able to understand chinese, we couldn't catch the conversations between our tour guide and the "operators" of the tourist buses. There are still a lot of tourists at Juifen so we were really confused about the whole situation. The meeting time was decided by our tour guide . If we had known about the schedule of the buses, so we could have left a few minutes earlier. We eventually reached the bus depot but not without significant delay. Overall, this is definitely not worth the trip.
