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.

    I would have loved this place had it been not overly touristy. There were a lot of people here to the point of taking small steps because there's little space to move around. It's an interesting and beautiful place, but the noise and chaos ruined my visit.

    Nice to walk around and eating


    Its a unique place to visit. From Taipei just take a public bus direct to Chiufen. On the day I visit the place was very crowded but a lot of fun. There are some tea houses there, try one famous with the Ghibli movie and not worth at all. try eating at many choices of small restaurants and try choices of delicacies will be a very good experiences.

    Very biutiful!


    You must visit Jiu Fen Old Street. There are so many delicious food and biutiful landscape. But the only thing that is the old street too narrow. If too many people in there, it will very crowded. So if you want to watch more landscape.find a restaurant, order a cup of tea .Then you will enjoy your time.
