Overview

Immerse yourself in Taiwan’s nostalgic atmosphere of the 1940s by having a day trip to Jiufen Village, one of the island’s once-prosperous towns. This small hillside town is famous for its captivating alleyways, teahouses, and a large selection of street food.

Jiufen Village’s Golden Age

Before being known as one of the most popular tourist spots in Northern Taiwan, Jiufen Village stood as the center of gold mining, making the town prosperous during the 1940s. The success of the gold mines explains why there are beautiful old buildings in town that make a great subject for photographs.

Another tourist spot emerged from Jiufen Village’s success. The refined ore from the town was processed in a copper and gold refining plant built in the 1930s. After the village’s golden age, the plant was turned into a tourist attraction. Nowadays, the place is called Jinguashi Remains of the 13 Levels.

Appreciate Nature in Your Jiufen Day Tour

Aside from admiring Jiufen Village, you can take advantage of your day tour to appreciate Taiwan’s natural landscape. One of the must-see tourist spots you can visit is Nanya Natural Rock Formation. 

This attraction is known for its unique rock formations that make good photographic subjects. Nanya Natural Rock Formation also features a sea-eroded coral shore, showing the exceptional artistry of nature.

You can also view the Bay of Two Colors during your Taiwan Jiufen tour. This is a bay where the sea has two distinct colors, which is why it is also called the Ying Yang Sea. Although you will only pass by this tourist attraction, you can still appreciate the bay’s beauty from afar and take pictures of it.
