In addition to Jiufen, if you would like to observe and experience Taiwanese culture, Pingxi is your next destination for vacation in Taipei. Reserving a Taipei private tour or other Taiwan tour packages in advance is more time-saving on transportation from Taipei to Jiufen or Pingxi. Ruifang Station (瑞芳站) is an alternative way to arrive.
