Take a step back in time on this trip to the towns of Jiufen and Pingxi, two charming, old-style destinations, great for romantic outings, nostalgic walks, and dining in delightful restaurants and teahouses. These two historic towns are just a stone’s throw away from Taipei, making them ideal for unique trips back in time. Jiufen, a major highlight for many a traveler to Taiwan, is located in the mountains of the northeast coast and from the town you have amazing views over the coast. Pingxi is best known for the Pingxi Branch Railway and the annual Sky Lantern Festival, during which thousands of visitors send sky lanterns with their wishes to the heavens. Both towns have interesting histories as former centers of mining -- gold-mining in Jiufen, and cold mining in Pingxi. After the decline of the mining industry, both have made a stunning revival as popular tourist attractions. This tour will allow you to bask in the old-town atmosphere, take in beautiful scenery, and learn a thing or two about the area’s history and culture.
