Jiufen Old Street 九份老街

Anchor point
There are four relatively well-renown streets in Jiufen among which includes Jishan Street, otherwise known as Dark Street. Rain or shine the street never sees the sun’s rays of light and it is usually packed with people, particularly on weekends and holidays. The other three streets also frequented by visitors are known as Cingbian Road, Ciche Road and Jianci Road. It is recommended that tourists slow down, for on these ancient lanes and alleys, perhaps when least expected, a picture perfect moment shall be availed of the careful eye.

    A different kind of experience from City


    Is definitely one of the attraction to go if you are in Taipei. Something different from the city areas with small alleyway and shops on both side. Basically all the tour company will send their tourists there and it can become very crowded and hard to manuvoure. Try to plan your trip on a weekday and avoid weekend at all cost! Most shops sell the same stuffs after walking around.. there are also some famous must eat food too, just look out for those with long queue and you won't go wrong. There are some nearby attractions such as the waterfall and the Shifen sky lantern which are in the same vinicity. Lots of cab driver actually offer a 6 or 8 hours trip from the city with price ranging from NT 3200 onwards. So it will be easier to move around with a cab waiting for you at each destination after you are done.

    Must visit place when in Taipei


    1.5hrs drive away from Taipei city. Enjoy strolling at the alley surrounded by the eateries, souvenirs shops and snacks. 2nd Times visited this place after 10years, and I strongly recommend to visit during cooling seasons instead of summer as this place always crowded. Most of the foods are tasty and small portion allows me to get more snacks after proper meal. Worth the visit.

    Awesome experience, mesmerizing, must visit place in Taiwan!!!


    Jiufen old street is a mesmerizing, amazing place to visit when you in Taiwan, fantastic view for photos is a bit complicated to get there but it’s well worth visit. You can get taxi to get there which will cost you around NT $200 a little bit pricey and second option you can catch a train to Ruifeng then bus to Jiufen old street (take the bus from the bus stop from the left hand side not the one in front of you when you exit the train station as this one will take you to Jiufen city not to Jiufen old street please get NT $20 ready on you or easy card ready as bus driver doesn’t have money to give you change). Bring cash as most of the shops or restaurants don’t except credit card, everything so cheap there. Enjoy your trip as I did!!!!

    A unique place showcasing old chinese settlements


    Its just mesmerizing, Narrow streets on a mountain top with streets running across in parallel connected by a small flight of steps and filled with shops selling all sorts of food, tea, souvenirs etc... Recommend to take a package tour from Taipei to avoid the hassle of public transport. Its just not worth it.

    Lovely town with lots of character


    Visited for a few hours on a very rainy day, so we rushed through and sadly didn't have any views of the sea due to the heavy cloud coverage. Because a lot of day tours and big buses make stops here throughout the day it is very crowded and busy. Next time I'm planning to stay at least 1 night in a bed and breakfast so I can see the town at a more peaceful hour. Stopped by the famous teahouse and ordered the ceremonial tea which was nice. Definitely recommend!
