Jiufen Shuttle Bus Day Tour (from Ximen)

Settle your transportation for a memorable day trip to Jiufen, the former gold mining mountain town of Taiwan.

Once a gold mining hub and holding site for British prisoners of war in World War II, Jiufen is a historic mountain town that has gained popularity among tourists in the recent years. If you noticed that the buildings and structures of the bustling town look different from the rest of Taiwan, you are right: Jiufen was originally built by the Japanese in the Qing Dynasty, which is why the architecture show obvious Japanese influence.

The many alleys that make up Jiufen go up the side of a mountain, overlooking the ocean. It is also usually slightly foggy, adding to the ambience. Don’t miss Shuqi Road, where most of the town’s highlights are. The 362-step cobblestone stairway is a must-visit, as is the refinery ruins that inspired the buildings in the popular Spirited Away anime. For street food and shopping, explore Jishan Street, Qiche Road, and Qingbian Road.

When you are ready to return to Taipei, the shuttle bus makes a round trip back to Ximending.
