The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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, it is like a beautiful palace that was deserted, earning it the name of “Potala Palace of the Mountain Mines”. Probing forward to the mouth of the river is the considerably distinguished Yinyang Sea, with its half gold half bluish green spectacle inspiring countless imaginations of romance. Walking along the streets of the meandering old streets of Jiufen and tasting the various kinds of authentic eateries is the love of tourists. Stepping into the Golden Museum, one can glimpse the historical traces of the mining industry culture, reminiscing of past glories from its museum, living quarters, and shrine remains. The unassuming mountain city of Houtong used to be a mining village. With the call of cat lovers, volunteer groups were established to create a friendly environment for cats and turned Houtong into a cat village for cat lovers.

If you are already at Jiufen Old Street, you can swing by to experience mining and also to see a gigantic gold bar being displayed. Tickets are required too. There's a popular Bento which you can try too.

This attraction is a complex that used to be a gold mining and refining facility. There are a number of different attractions inside, but you have to pay an additional fee to visit some of them. Not a whole lot of information about the process. Lots of shops and places to eat. If I knew what I know now, I would not have taken the 1 hour and 45 minute bus ride.

I did most of the outdoor stuff, which is free.

It's a nice place to walk around and have a look. Some nice old historic buildings set amongst a mountain valley.

The day I went the weather was perfect. I can imagine that it would not be as fun if the weather was bad.

You can take the 856 from Jiufen to get there.

We didn't visit the outdoor park, instead we paid (NT80) and went to the indoor museum as it was raining. We had a long but nice walk as the driver could not stop and wait at the front of the museum. Had some insights on the history and the worklife of the coal miners and managed to touch the 220kg gold bar.
Tip: if you are in packed day trip schedule (to visit Jiu Fen, Shi Fen, Yehliu etc), you may want to make this visit as short as possible.

This is a nice museum but it was raining when I was there and there was not much shelter along the way. I ended up walking all the way to a temple at the far end. Recommended to visit if you are around the area.

The gold museum and accompanying mine tunnel is interesting and does give some insight into gold mining in 20th century Taiwan, but it is lacking in artifacts and detail. Worth a visit if you are in the area for the views down the valley to the sea if nothing else.

Small and tidy gold mine museum surrounded by mountains. Easy to walk around. A very friendly old lady at the information desk at the entrance....her english wasn’t very good but her kindness makes everything understandable...
