Northern Taiwan: Jiufen, Yehliu and Shifen

We took a day tour to Northern Taiwan – landscapes in Yehliu, historic Jiufen and famous sky lanterns in Shifen.

This tour we once again used KKDAY to book and all seven of us boarded a van at 8am from our hotel.

On a side note, all the KKDAY vouchers and tours we bought checked out and it was very efficient especially for big groups like ours!

Day Trip Itinerary:

Yehliu Geopark

Old Town of Shifen / Release a Sky Lantern

Golden Waterfalls

Jiufen Street Market

Yehliu Geopark

I don’t know why but I loved the rock formations at Yehliu Geopark. Maybe it’s the nerd in me but it took thousands of years to form those little mushrooms.

Tip: Beware of the heat. We only stayed 45 minutes tops because my companions could not take the hot temperature.



Golden Waterfalls

They’re “gold” because the soil is rich in copper.

Jiufen Old Street

Eat, shop and eat! Try the famous peanut ice cream.


Next stop: Kaohsiung!
