Overview
✔️Discover the hidden Jiufen Town that is only known to locals ✔️Experience the near extinct gold-prospecting skills unique to Taiwan ✔️Spot the breathtaking panoramic view of coastal-hill regions --- Jiufen, probably already on your bucket list of must go places, is one of the most renowned cities among travelers to Taiwan. Once the most dominant gold mine city of Asia under Japanese colonization, she enjoyed prominence even well into the 1950s. For decades, Jiufen was celebrated for its luxurious life style, grandeur of its temples and theaters, and the size of its visitor crowds. Today, Jiufen is mostly appreciated for its local cuisine, the coastal views of North Taiwan, and its relation to popular movies such as Spirited Away and A City of Sadness. However, on this fascinating route, we take you to the unknown side of Jiufen away from the clustered tourist sites - Come with us on this tour to travel back in time and see the authentic Jiufen Town in its golden years!

I've been to jiufen before, but my tour with Yujin was nothing like what I experienced from jiufen. I turned out to be the only one that signed up, so it became a private tour. Yujin is very wellspoken and knowledgeable about all of jiufen. The museum tour and information

The main Street of Jiufen can be obnoxiously crowded, this tour is to see the rest of the town and hidden streets. Our guide Lo was one of my favorite guides I met in Taiwan, he was so good I took another tour with him the next day (Taipei history tour).
