Recommended attractions


Jiufen, with its majestic mountains and expansive sea views, is a highly recommended destination. It offers breathtaking landscapes throughout the seasons, from spring to winter, during clear days, rainy days, sunrise, sunset, and even at night. Whether it's through windows facing the sea, balconies, or the streets, you can enjoy the ever-changing natural scenery and the towering beauty of Jilong Mountain, along with the wide expanse of the blue harbor coastline.

|Houtong Cat Village

During the Japanese colonial period, Houtong was a thriving coal mining and gold panning town. Today, it has faded away from its former glory. However, thanks to the friendly care of local residents and the efforts of volunteers, the community's cats have become the highlight of this small town. Houtong Cat Village has even been recommended by CNN as one of the top six cat destinations in the world. The cats here are gentle, friendly, and not at all shy. Their playful antics bring joy and surprise to visitors who come to this charming village.

|Experience a ride on the Pingxi Line train (NT$15 fee required)

The Taiwan Railway Pingxi Line has a history of over a hundred years since its opening in 1921. During the Japanese colonial period, the line was constructed to transport coal mined along the route. In the 1980s, with the closure of coal mines and population decline, the line faced financial losses, and Taiwan Railways had considered discontinuing its operation. However, thanks to the active efforts of local residents, it was preserved and transformed into a tourist-oriented route.

|Shifen Old Street

The main feature of Shifen Old Street is the connection between the old street and the railroad tracks, allowing visitors to experience the novelty of "trains passing in front of the doors" and the fun of strolling along the tracks. The old street is bustling and diverse, offering the opportunity to buy a sky lantern and write wishes for oneself and loved ones, offering blessings. The nearby Shifen Suspension Bridge is also a popular spot for visitors to pause and capture memorable photos.
