Jiufen Gold Rush Town

Jiufen, perfectly situated up in the hills and straddles the Pacific Ocean, was once a prosperous gold rush town before the 1970s. Today, with its picturesque stone walls, narrow cobblestone streets, and tea houses, the ancient city has become an inspirational mecca for artists, writers, and movie directors like Hou Hsiao-hsien (A City of Sadness) and Hayao Miyazaki (Spirited Away).

Jiufen & Jiufen Old Street

The most memorable part of being in Jiufen, without doubt, is the long and narrow night market street which stretches through the entire town.

The golden waterfall

Although there is no actual gold flowing forth from these falls, the name reflects their appearance: the combination of regular rainfall in this mining area and abundance of heavy metal elements deposited in the riverbed radiate a gold-like color.

Heping Island Park

Heping Island is the doorway to Keelung Harbor. Inside the park, you will see important terrain of marine abrasion, including marine cliff, abrasion platform and abrasion fosse as well as the famous “bean curd rock” and pedestal rock.
