Hi!! I am back… 😊. Well today’s posting is my latest trip to Taiwan early this month. I got the chance to visit a few places where one of which was the Taiwan – Kaohsiung, the Giant Yellow Rubber Duck.
When I was in Taiwan on one of my weekend there, I also managed to visit Jiufen; a once old mining town up in the hills. More about Jiufen as my posting continues. Let start’s moving!!
I started my journey from Hsinchu City where I was staying during my trip in Taiwan. To get to Jiufen, it was either by bus or train and the journey would take about 2 to 2 1/2 hrs in total (if you take the high speed train to Taipei than a bus, the time will be around half of this) . For me, I decided to take the train then followed by a short bus trip.
From hotel, it was a short 10 mins walk to the railway station in Hsinchu.

After 2 1/2hr ride, finally arrived at Ruifang Station.

Finally arrived in Jiufen. Weather was gloomy and humid.
Join me on my next posting on my walk in Jiufen Old Street.
