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.

    Juifen village


    It was a very rainy Sunday and due to the amount of other tourists with umbrellas in the very small narrow alleys created a uncomfortable experience. Our bus was not allowed in the village because it was a Sunday and therefore we had to take a local bus, the busride out of the village was very unsafe! The rest of the trip was nicer and when we could see more of the Northeast coastline. Our guide was very nice.

    So crowded on weekend


    come at afternoon , stay one night and leave the next day before noon, have a pot of chinese tea with peaceful view and crowded people, hahaha😄...enjoy試著傍晚才到這個山城, 先找間茶屋,泡壺茶,吃個小點心, 七八點人潮散去後, 喝杯啤酒,吃個晚飯,享受寧靜的夜晚。早晨一定要很早起床, 散步在無人的山城,順便吃個小吃當早餐,中午以前下山吧!週六週日真的不要來!

    Great to buy soubinir


    Can take TRA from Taipei Main Station to Ruifang and take local bus to Jiufen. Go early before the tourist bus arrived, less crowded that time.

    Quaint Old Street


    This is one of the favorite go to place in Taiwan, and this is my third time visiting this old street. Another good thing is that it is very near to the trail head of Ji Long Shan, which happens to be one of my favorite hill to climb / hike at the same time. Be sure to check out the vegan Jinzhi Vegan Meat Balls inside the old street!
