What You Can Expect

Chiufen Village (Jiufen) and Northeast Coast Half-Day Tour from Taipei

Nanya Rock formations, Taipei

You'll be picked up from your Taipei city hotel at 1:00pm, drive along the northeast coast of Taiwan to the National Scenic Area, popular location with the locals. The northeast coast scenic area is noted for its numerous capes and bays backed by green mountains. Visit Pitou Cape, tall abrasion caves and platforms and other eroded landforms which can be clearly seen on the cape's hanging cliff.

The tour continues to Nanya, a coastline filled with amazing rock formations, a sea-eroded coral shore. The patterned stone is unique in Taiwan and formed through the weathering of the sandstone that lines the shore. The oxidation of iron ore within the stone gives it a beautiful striped pattern.

Travel to the quaint little village of Chiufen Village (Jiufen), once the gold mining center of Taiwan. The gold is gone, but Chiufen (Jiufen) built of closely-packed houses clinging to steep mountainsides, continue to offer enchanting scenery, unique teahouses and fascinating glimpses into the lifestyles of the past.

Tour Highlights

  • Chiufen Village (Jiufen)

Hi. Our tour was very fun. We had an English speaking tour guide, Thomas, and he was really entertaining during the tour. The driver and Thomas picked us up at our hotel at exactly 12:50pm then dropped us off at 6pm. I would recommend this tour and viator to all travelers who wants to visit Taiwan and the North east coast. Thank you again.

Frankie was our guide and it was a great trip! We were very comfortably seated in a van, with 3 other tourists. We were shown all the scenic spots to take pictures, and my favorite was taking a picture at the tea house in Jiufen that inspired the tea house in Miyazaki's Spirited Away! Don't eat lunch before this because there is tons of delicious foods to try at Jiufen!

The tour was wonderful and especially good with a small group. The tour guide was knowledgeable and humourous. My sister and I had a wonderful trip and will most likely choose Viator again for our next local half day trip.

We really loved the bus tour to the coast and Jiufen Village. The hotel pickup was great. There were about ten of us on the tour, from Australia, Canada and the US. We learned a great deal of information and our tour guide Danny was great!!! He has was very nice and had a great sense of humor. He took pictures for us and positioned us for best lighting. We wish we had longer to spend at the village, one hour is not enough time to spend at all those great shops. However, we understand the need to keep the tour moving. Overall a great experience and one we would definitely recommend to others.
