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.

    Extremely crowded


    Was here to enjoy the sights and sounds but ended in a beeline crowd during a wet weekdays afternoon. Quite pleasant but things are at tourists price. Do be careul with your purse or wallet here

    very touristy but worth a visit


    We went there on a weekday and it was full of tourist groups, I can't imagine the weekend as the alleys are really small/narrow. We got there easily by bus from Taipei area. There's plenty of food and dessert options. I don't know if it's worth staying overnight there as it's quite small.

    For fans of Spirited Away


    We arrived at Jiufen about 5.00 pm and it was very crowded. It has many shops selling street food and souvenirs. This place is good for fans of Spirited Away.

    Tourist trap with lovely views


    The Jiufen Old Street is an under cover tourist market in the hills above Taipei with wonderful views to the sea. We caught a bus from Taipei that took about an hour to get to Jiufen. The Old Street is easy to find, just follow the crowd. The offerings range from local sweets, cafes, toys, and handicrafts. At the end of the street are gorgeous tea houses with extremely quiet ambience (after the bustle of the "Old Street"), and great views, but also with steep prices. Good for a half day outing.

    Fascinating Street


    I don't particularly enjoy shopping but I find this old street rather enchanting. There are one or two eating stalls that are recommended by our taxi driver, which turned out quite interesting and good. We are there on a weekday and so the street is not particularly crowded, which is a bonus. The stalls are quite unique and I wished we have more time to browse through all the shops. Given a chance, I will return to Jiufen.
