The location in the mountains above the ocean is gorgeous but the thousands of tourists inhabits the enjoyment. The views, history and architecture make this destination, a must but be prepared for a tourist trap

It is interesting place but not that great. It sells almost the same stuff that you get at night markets. Of course there are some food that you can get only at Jiufen. I just spend an hour at Jiufen. It is crowded with tourist...More

Many great food options and perhaps a place to but last minute souvenirs before you leave Taiwan but definitely worth a day trip. Mind that over the weekends thousands of people go there for a day.

Quaint and lovely street with good food and cute little shops with friendly people. Lovely view from the top.

Went there at around 7, and would recommend others to visit earlier as shops close at around 7+. Be prepared as it was quite crowded even as the shops were closing. The famous peanut ice cream roll is a must-try - it is both cheap...More

I am a first time visitor to Taiwan from the Philippines, and Chiufen was one of my must-see places because I saw it being featured in a Filipino movie. Personally, I think that there is nothing really special about the place other than the fact...More

The street is full of food and souvenir stalls. It's fun to walk with the crowd in daytime but I wouldn't recommend anyone to stay at Jiufen, even for a night (I stayed here for a night). The stalls close at 7 or 8pm and...More

Since this is one of the tourist attractions it was included in our itinerary. If given a chance to visit Taiwan again I will no longer stop at his place. The place is too crowded.

Ruifan District
With its air of historical heritage, Shuijinjiu
(ShueiNanDong, Jingguashi, Jiufen) used to be
prosperous and glamorous due to mining. Although its
magnificent semblance no longer exists, the peaceful
and beautiful atmosphere has persisted. With a wave to
the age of the gold rush, one can still see a glimpse
of its glorious past through the Golden Waterfall.
Gazing at the ShueiNanDong Remains of the 13 Levels,
