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.

    great place to visit a town that built its fortune on gold and gold mining. authentic historic restaurants tea houses and food vendors. scenic ocean views. lots of people especially on weekends. wear comfortable shoes because you're going to be walking a lot. lots of stairs too so walking and climbing.

    Definitely a must do when in Taiwan, spare at least half a day to snake thru the lovely little alleys, packed to brim with fun little shops, quaint cafes and delicious snacks, take in wonderful scenic views with a cup of tea. Wear comfortable shoes!

    I've been to Jiufen. The scenery there is beautiful, but there are too many tourists and the roads are very small, so Jiufen is very crowded. The food there is very delicious. Generally speaking, I like Jiufen. I will still visit Jiufen the next time.

    good trip


    It seems to me that Jiufen Old Street is an unique area in Taiwan. Taro Balls is the most famous food here. When I saw them, I was so curious whether they were delicious or not. I hadn’t eaten them before because I hated eating taro. Nevertheless, I love taro balls after I ate them. After the meal, I kept walking in the street. I saw many foreigners from different countries here. There are many stairs because Jiufen Old Street is located in the mountain. I felt tired after climbing the stairs, but I could see beautiful views such as the ocean, the mountains, and so on. I like Jiufen, and I can’t wait to come to Jinfan Old Street next time.

    I enjoy the walk along the narrow and stepped lanes lined by numerous touristy shops. There’s plenty of good food and dessert options to try here. This is one amazing village town that should be on everyone’s itinerary in Taipei.
