Tour Overview
As the train whistle blows, coal field, mines, historical streets, mountains and streams slowly retreat into the distance. These are lasting memories of the coal industry's glory days. Time coalesces here. Stone plank roads, wooden buildings and hearty greetings reproduce the vivid scence of the bustling village. Alleys offer traditional foods while a stroll along the train tracks gives the feel of a small railway town.

From a suitable vantage point the view of this mountain village is priceless. If you’ve seen the animation, Spirited Away, you will find it familiar lingering through Jiufen, which is also called “The Sky Castle.” This is a majestic scenic village you must visit in your lifetime.

Want to make a wish? Writing wishes on a sky lantern allows blessings to take flight. This is the beauty of Pinxi, the home of sky lanterns.
What to Expect
  • Visit Shuinandong Area and see the unique blue and yellow color swirls in the “Yin-Yang Sea”. Probing forward to the mouth of the river is the considerably distinguished Yinyang Sea, with its half gold half bluish green spectacle inspiring countless imaginations of romance.
  • Visit the spectacular Gold Waterfall, another unique and beautiful sight. With a wave to the age of the gold rush, one can still see a glimpse of its glorious past through the Golden Waterfall. Gazing at the ShueiNanDong Remains of the 13 Levels, it is like a beautiful palace that was deserted, earning it the name of “Potala Palace of the Mountain Mines”.
  • Viewing the magnificent scenery of mountain, sea, and the historical sites, you will experience this relaxing atmosphere at this mountain town, Jiufen. Spend your time here making a pot of Taiwanese tea and smell its aroma. Take a stroll at this maze of lanes and alleyways and enjoy the charming lifestyle at Jiufen Old Street.
  • The Jing Tong train station is one of the four remaining wooden stations left in Taiwan and it is also one of the top 100 historic century-old buildings in Taiwan. Enjoy a day away from the hustle and bustle of the city, perfect for all ages and skill level.
