Taiwan – Jiufen, A Walk in Old Street (1)

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.
