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.

    A big fan of spirited away!!


    If u wish to avoid big crowds, visit on weekdays instead. This place is packed with tourist. Came in the evening if u want to see the lantern lights up. So lively and beautiful view. Do try the famous taro and sweet potato balls

    Good place to visit. Full of small and big eating places, souveniers etc. Very crowded and packed but spotlessly clean. Must visit

    Fun to walk around but super busy


    We visited mid week, when I thought it was busy. However our guide said at the weekend it was much more chaotic! It’s definitely geared up for the tourists, however it is fun to walk around the small market and look at the food and drink on offer!

    Food and Souvenirs


    Stopped by as part of a day tour and this was the highlight of the trip. The street was busy and packed but I think that was part of the experience. The street was lined with shops, mostly selling food or souvenirs. The food shops were all tempting, selling food from savoury to sweet. We were only there for about 40 minutes due to time constraints, which was not enough time to have a proper look around. Although it was easier to come with a tour, it looks like you are able to catch a bus from Taipei city to get here but it does look like quite an effort. It would be a nice day trip to shop and eat.
