What to Expect
  • Yehliu Geopark - Because of the ocean water and wind erosion, there are much unique natural landscape attracting people to go here. The ocean water erosion makes the candle shaped rock. While the wave splashes it, you can see the power of nature. As for the wind erosion, never skip the Queen’s Head. Through the 30 –year erosion, Queen’s Head becomes more and more slender. Remember to have a glimpse of it, or it may be vanished in the future because of erosion.
  • Golden Waterfall - Yin-Yang Sea in the Jinguashi Gold Ecological Park region. Its red-like color background of Golden Waterfall comes from the sulfurous soil and it contains a high level of toxic. Along the way to Golden Waterfall, you may find the abandoned factories of the gold mining before. (You may be interested in: The Amazing Golden Waterfall and the Gold Museum in Taiwan)
  • Jiufen - A unique immigrant isolated village in the mountains in the Qing dynasty. When Taiwan was under Japanese rule, there was a gold rush in Jiufen. This place is also famous for taro ball, fish ball, and rice cake. If tourists are tired after walking so long, you can rest in the tea house to taste the delicacies of Jiufen.

  • Houtong Cat Village - Meeting the sleeping cats in the plaza, you will find cats everywhere in this small village. Also, people here were making a living in coal mining. Visitors can experience the coal mining life through going into the tunnel through a standing vehicle. And if you meet cats in the tunnel, don’t forget to greet them with a smile and Meow sound.
  • Keelung Miaokou Night Market - A famous local market for its seafood and south Taiwan taste. In the island full of street food, we would recommend the fish ball, crab thick soup, and rice cake. There is tempura made of fish which is full of Taiwan local taste. The crab oil rice with ocean scent and full of crab stick is also a feature you can’t miss.
