    Nanya Rock

    Your tour starts with a stop at Nanya Rock, known for its unique rock formations created by weathering and erosion for years. Most of the rocks lying along the coastline are sandstones and sedimentary rocks; because of the velocity on erosion and the resistance to erosion, the rocks are formed in different shapes, such as the Ice Cream Rock, the Bamboo Shoot Rock, and the Fur Seal Rock, providing perfect photo opportunities.

    Bay of Two Colors (pass by)

    After Nanya Rock, you will pass by the Bay of Two Colors on the way to the next stop of your tour.

    Bay of Two Colors, as its name implies, 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. The process of natural mineral formation results in this unique phenomenon, “half golden, half blue” sea.

    Remains of the 13 Levels (photo stop)

    Your half-day tour continues with a stop at the Remains of the 13 Levels in Jinguashi, a former copper smelter, which was built in 1933 when the Japanese people discovered and started the copper mining here. The copper smelter was closed in 1987 due to the decline of the mining industry. However it is a significant proof of the history of Jinguashi’s copper mining industry, and an iconic landmark of the northeastern area. Gaze at the remains from afar, this building is like an abandoned palace that is forgotten by people. Today it has become a popular spot for many dramas and advertisements shooting.

    Jiufen Village

    Finally, the highlight of your tour to the northeast coast of Taiwan—Jiufen Village, a hillside village that was once flourished in the 1940s due to the gold mining industry, and then fell into disrepair and decrepitude for years. Even though the golden age has long gone, this small village still has a lot of stories to tell.

    The awarded movie “A City of Sadness”, directed by the famous film director Hou Hsiao-hsien, was shot there. Its unique historical background, the melancholic and emotional atmosphere attracted enormous global attention. The success of the movie also brought vitality to Jiufen’s tourism, making it the most popular destination in northeastern Taiwan.
