When it comes to the tourist attractions in Taipei, what is the first to show up in your mind? Is it Taipei 101, Chiang Kai Shiek Memorial Hall, Dadaocheng or Jiufen Old Street, Shifen Waterfall, Yehliu, Yangmingshan? For some people, a tour is not complete without visiting the most iconic attractions while for other people, the meaning of the tour is to find out the place that people have never been to.
Tendency of Tourism
According to the research of some well-known online travel agencies, it’s a trending that people are planning their tour without popular attractions. Posting pictures of most-visited destinations on Instagram is not something worth showing off; instead, it’s swaggy to post the picture of somewhere unknown but gorgeous.
To have a tour exploring the hidden treasure
A tour to the hidden treasures can guarantee you a peaceful time when you can totally be chilled with yourself or your friends without being interrupted, and it can be easier to take pictures so you don’t need to spend a lot of time on the edition.
What’s the hidden treasure around Taipei?
To dig out the hidden treasures, Justaiwantour collected some foreign travelers to explore the beauty of northern Taiwan. We will soon release the related videos and articles regarding this event and keep this article updated. Before the update, you can have a glimpse of the routine and the spots.
- Chingshan Waterfall
With a height of 30 meters, it’s the second-largest waterfall in Yangminshan. But it is the most forgotten spot in Yangminshan as well. The trail is totally built under the trees’ canopy so it’s an ideal place to visit in the summertime. At the end of the trail, you can feel the water splashing and the air is full of coolness.
- Shimen Terrace
You probably have seen the picture of a boundless paddy field in Taiwan, but have you ever seen the hills cut into countless terrace along the slope? Shimen Terrace was built with volcanic rocks one hundred years ago. It’s a fantastic place for photography lovers. If you looking from afar, the terrace looks like the giants’ staircase; if you standing in the middle of the farm, the terrace looks like the mirrors reflecting the sky. Every year from May to June, you can even see the cosmos dotting on the ridge.
By the way, if you come to Shimen around the time from March to May, remember to see the seasonal attraction－Laomei Green Reef. Read more:【Taipei Private Tour】Spring Only! The Dreamlike Laomei Green Reef
- Jingshan Old Street
After the exploration in the mountain and at the terraces, you may want some food to recharge the energy. Drive along the coastline you can get to Jingshan Old Street, which was the distribution center of produce and marine products. At the market, you can find the local exclusive snacks like sugar-skinned sweet potatoes and taro cakes. And don’t forget the super popular duck stall at the temple plaza. At Jingshan, there are always foods to tickle your taste buds.
- Camel Hill
You may find it hard to concentrate on the traffic while driving on the high way of the north coast. The bizarre rock formation can catch your attention and distract you. There is a huge camel lying still and facing toward the sea on the north coast. You can climb up to the camel hump to have a full view of Donao Haber and the Yehliu Cape.
- Nangzilin Trail
How much effort does it take to have a panorama with mountains and the ocean?
The answer is: walking on an ascending trail for 40 minutes. It’s a family-friendly trail. You may be a little bit sweaty, but the beautiful scenery definitely worth it! The sea wind can relax your fatigue. The view can make you forget the flow of time. Only when the sun sinks down the horizon and the fishing boats start to lit the light can you realize that it’s time for home.
