Jingtong Old Street 菁桐老街

Anchor point


With the development of the railway, the busiest old street of Jingtong is at the exit of the Jingtong Station. Because of the increasing amount of tourists, the nearby merchants started catering to tourists by providing things such as local delicacies, agricultural specialties, and souvenir shop. In addition, although nobody knows how it started, it has become a trend in the Jingtong area to write prayers on bamboos and hang them next to the railway. Somehow, this became a feature of the Old Street.

    Last stop of Pingxi line


    Jingtong is the last station of TRA Pingxi line. I bought one day ticket of the line and went to this small town. It is much less touristic than Shifen, but Old Street was interesting. You may feel as if you went back to the past. Jingtong is very small. In my opinion, one hour stay is more than enough.

    Nice but small old street - best as part of a daytrip


    We visited JingTong Old Street during Chinese New Year and were lucky enough to see new year lanterns being set off from the railway tracks. The old street is quite cute with a variety of souvenir and food stalls, but it doesn't compare to the likes of Shifen or Jiufen old streets - worth a visit if you are planning on exploring all the towns on the same railway track in one day.

    Quiet and Instagrammable Place


    If you watch Taiwanese dramas, this place will look very familiar to you. A lot of Taiwanese dramas filmed here. It's a quiet little town and it has quaint shops and local foods that you can try.

    Sky lantern


    We went to Jingtong old street for the purpose of flying sky lantern. The jingtong railway station has great scenery and the old street invoked nostalgic memories of the past.
