Jiufen Old Street 九份老街

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.

    Too many oeople


    This place is actually quite nice. There are many shops selling food and other souvenir stuff but there are really just too many people. You’re walking down the alleys like penguins moving one inch per minute, it wasn’t a nice experience.

    Jiufen Old Street charm


    A bird's eyeview of how Taiwan used to be was shown by Jiufen Old Street. We took a chartered car through Klook to visit Shifen, Pingxi, Jiufen and Keelung. We had so much fun navigating the undulating streets filled with food stalls that sell traditions-old foodstuff. There were craft and souvenir shops as well. When in Taiwan do make time to visit this place. It can be reached through the train system and buses, too.

    Crowded, rainy but beautiful


    We came here on a KKday day tour, and had nearly 2 hours to walk around and explore. The day we went, the heavens opened, so walking up and down the main stretch, when everyone has umbrellas up, was a bit difficult. Once you deviate from the main area though, it gets easier. We loved all the lanterns and Spirited Away themed shops. Follow your nose and get some snacks in whatever stall takes your fancy. We tried some great prawn balls The view from the top is beautiful. Yes it is busy and very touristy, but if you prepare yourself for that, it's worth it. If I had a shorter time in Taiwan, I would probably focus more on Taipei, but it was really nice to get out and explore some countryside.

    Interesting Place


    An ancient mountain street with adjoining shops and stores. The entrance is small and crowed but it is very excited to join the flow of travelers. After walk for a while, please seat down and enjoin some tea in a tea shop, look at the contrary between the peaceful mountain view outside and the noisy of traveler on the road. Street food here is variety, should come with an empty belly :)
