If you followed my previous posts, I mentioned about hiring a private taxi (cab) for a day trip to outside of Taipei city of Taiwan. There is a popular day trip which includes the tour to Yehliu Geopark (Rocks Formation), Shifen Old Street, Jiufen Old Street, Yin Yang Hai and Jin Guo Shi Golden Waterfall. This is the continuation of my day trip with the private taxi (cab) to Jiufen Old Street, Yin Yang Hai (Ying Yang Sea) and Jin Guo Shi (Golden Waterfall) before heading back to Taipei City for my dinner and night shopping at Raohe Night Market.
We headed to Jiufen Old Street after visiting Shifen Old Street. Jiufen Old Street is located in Ruifang District of New Taipei City in Taiwan. This small town became developed rapidly due to a gold rush during Japanese occupation in 1893. Many buildings at Jiufen Old Street remain unchanged to this day, as to reflect Japanese influence on the architecture and the culture on the island. Jiufen Old Street becomes popular as a tourist destination from a popular Japanese animated film called Spirited Away. The Spirited Away animated movie is based on Japanese architecture concept of the old buildings from Jiufen Old Street. Jiufen Old Street is crowded with visitors who travel from within Taiwan or outside of Taiwan, to watch fantastic ocean view from Jiufen town while trying variety of delicacies there.
After having your delicious lunch and tea at Jiufen Old Street, the day tour will move on to the next famous location at Yin Yang Hai (Yin Yang Sea) and Jin Guo Shi (Golden Waterfall). Both of these sites are located on the way heading out of Jiufen Old Street. Yin Yang Hai (Yin Yang Sea) is another spectacular view of yellow and blue sea at the gulf while Jin Guo Shi (Golden Waterfall) is a gold ecological park. Jin Guo Shi (Golden Waterfall) is named after the golden yellow of mud appears on the stream water and it sparkles like gold under the sunlight.
