Must Visit

Until the 1950’s, Jiufen was a prosperous gold mining town. The town went into sharp decline when mining was discontinued. The quaint streets, tea houses and stunning views of the Pacific Ocean saved it from becoming yet another anonymous mining ghost town. Jiufen is now a popular tourist destination for Taipeites eager to relive scenes from the past. It has provided the setting for several period movies. For example, Hou Hsiao-hsien’s film A City of Sadness (which won the Golden Lion award at the 1989 Venice Film Festival) and Studio Ghibli’s Spirited Away.
