Busy street for foodtripThis area is famous for bargain hunters and foodtrip lovers. Weather is mostly cool as it is situated high up in the mountains. Jiufen can get crowded during weekends as a lot of tourist visit this place. There's a money changer halfway but can be tricky to find. You can dry different cuisines and local snacks.
Way too crowdedLots of food and other stuff to buy here. But this place is simply way too crowded. There seems to be only one way in and one way out. After we inched our way almost to the end, we had to turn back because everyone was stuck at that point. We are not sure what was at the end. Seems like some beautiful lookout to the valley below. Anyway, was not going to trade safety for a view. If there is a fire or stampede, good luck. No way for strollers to pass through. Having said that, we still saw people with walking frames, 2 motorbikes and even a mini lorry (delivering supplies to the shops) navigating their way through the crowded narrow path. We did pop into a restaurant with a nice view of the valley. Ate something. The road down was very congested too. Basically, there is jam everywhere. The only reason why I went: seems incomplete if I visit Shifen (ten) but not Jiufen (nine).
A good walkThe famous shopping and eating street of jiufen. All the famous snacks are there including the yam soup dessert and ice cream + peanut crepe. Nice walk if not too crowded and dry We took bus 1062 (exit 2 from zhongxiao fuxing mrt station) and it was an easy 1 hour

Lots of good food but busyWorth a visit, but mostly for hiking around the surrounding areas and getting cheap food. Go at a quieter time and you’ll have a more beautiful experience but luck out perhaps on the full atmosphere
Fun, Engaging and Great VibeWe took the bus (#965) to Jiufen which took just over an hour. It was very inexpensive to take the bus which was more like a tour bus than and local bus. Jiufen Old Street is a bit crowded but does not take away from learning about the history of the old town as walk through the various streets. Great view of the old town as well as surrounding areas including the nearby bay. Lots of shops and restaurants. Well worth the trip.
