Taiwan – Trip to PingXi train line (4)

From Huotong to Shifen, it took about 15 to 20 min train ride. The train ride was beautiful; cutting thought the hills, green trees and a beautiful waterfall before you to reached Shifen. When arrived at Shifen, I was surprised to see the stalls so close the tracks. You will understand when you see the pictures below.

This is the photo from the station and the paths to the Shifen town where the stalls are literally on both side of the tracks.

Shifen is famous for the sky lantern. You can see lots of stalls selling the lanterns from deco size where some could even glow at night to the big ones which you can write messages on four side of the lantern and then release it.

I continued walking along to the town and headed to the Shifen Waterfall. It was a nice and easy walk and along the way, I had to cross the railway tracks.
