Jioufen

Understand

Until the 50s, Jioufen was a prosperous gold mining town, but when the mining was discontinued, the town went into sharp decline. However, the quaint streets, tea houses and stunning views of the Pacific Ocean saved it from becoming yet another anonomous mining ghost town. The town was the site of many historic movies and is now a popular tourist destination, especially with Taipeites eager to relive scenes of the past.

Jioufen

Get in

From Taipei, take the train north to Reifang Station. From Reifang take the Keelung Transit bus from the bus stops in front of the train station to Jioufen. The bus trip is roughly 15 minutes.

Or, take the Jiufen bus from the Adventist Hospital bus stop on Bade Road, east of the intersection with Fuxing Road.

The main area of interest to visitors are the town's historic commercial district which is covered by two pedestrian streets: Jishan Street (???, which runs along the ridge line), and Shuchi Street (???, which runs up and down the slope of the hill).
