Return to Jiufen



How time flies! It must be at least four years since I last visited the old gold mining town of Jiufen (九份), even though it’s only about an hour away from Taipei.  


Despite the huge number of tourists that clogged its main alley, the town seems to have retained most of its original charm. The next time I go there, however, it’ll be one a weekday rather than on a weekend in order to avoid the crowds.
