What To Expect

Famous for the ancient and traditional vibe, Jiufen (Chiufen) is an old mining village that was the inspiration for Miyazaki to create the legendary animation 'Spirited Away'. The Japanese influenced architecture and beautiful surrounding mountains have made Jiufen village a must-visit attraction. This 4-hour trip will give you a truly local experience and insight into what ancient Taiwan might have been like.

Leaving behind the hustle and bustle of Taipei, you will get on a scenic ride up the mountains to Jiufen (Chiufen), a quaint village located at higher altitudes in the North East. Old houses imprinted with the traces of time will surely encourage you to learn more about the rich cultures of Taiwan. Let your local guide help you explore the unique hidden gems in this town, such as the tea houses. After leaving Jiufen, your coach driver will take you to the top of the hill and get an astounding view of Keelung outer sea.

You will also get the chance to pass by Jinguashih (Chinkuashih) village, a location of remote wilderness and previously of the golden capital of East Asia. You will be mesmerized by the interesting origin of the site as well as the stories of the greedy treasure hunters.

From Jinguashih village, you will pay a visit to one of the three Capes of North Taiwan, Bitou (Pitou) cape, in which most of the rare stones of Taiwan can be found. This landmark will take your breath away with its outstanding geological characteristics.

Nanya will impress you with its rock formations and sea-eroded coral shores. Walking along the coastline, you find yourself easily attracted to the stone sculpture artworks carved by the winds and waves.

This trip cannot be fulfilled if you miss out the Bay of Two Colors, where the sea is a blend of yellow and blue. Ask your local guide to show you the spot where you can truly capture the phenomenon in all its beauty with the ocean backdrop.

We arrived on weekdays so that the streets were not filled by tourists. Pleasant walk to the top of the hill gave me stunning panoramic lookout of the bay. A visit to traditional teahouse will bring you back to the old time of Taipei. Really worth every penny!

A bit touristy but still able to enjoy to beauty of this ancient town. We really felt into the awe-inspiring sunset when standing on top of the hill. No need to rush for the last bus back to Taipei since we had our helpful local guide. He picked us up on time and left us enough time to explore at each destination. Great tour great experiences in... Read more

Heard of Inspitrip from my friend's recommendation and decided to book the tour at midnight after our arrival. It was great that our local guide arrived at hotel lobby on time in the next morning. He is very friendly and knowledgeable. Since we only stayed at Taiwan for 2 days, this tour helped us a lot, time-saving and excellent service.

Still have question?

How do I book on Inspitrip?

For most experiences on Inspitrip, there are two options: Small Group and Private tour. For both options, you can chat with your local guide and other people in your group even before the trip takes place.
  • Small group tour: operates with a maximum number of people. If you like to make new friends, this is a great option. You would pay for the trip to confirm your slot, then join a chat group with your local guide as well as fellow travel buddies, everything would be on Inspitrip. Get to know them!
  • Private tour: maximize your privacy and allows you to freely customize the itinerary. First, request to communicate any specific needs you may have, wait a couple minutes for these requests to be confirmed, and then you can proceed to payment.

What are the cancellation and refund policies?

Cancellation is free if you cancel up to 48 hours before the trip date. We believe that this is the fairest way to ensure that both our travelers and local guides are happy.

Does the Small Group option still operate if there are less than the maximum number of people signed up?

Yes, even if you are the only person who signs up for the trip on a given date, the tour will still take place.

My question is not listed here. What should I do?
