What We Love:

As any visitor to Taipei knows, the quaint and historic hillside village of Jiufen is arguably the number one place to visit near Taipei. But it's not the most convenient place to get to - until now! Avoid the slow buses and expensive taxis and book this extremely convenient return day trip transfer to Jiufen departing from Ximending for just US$15! Stop off at Shifen along the way to decorate a paper lantern and make a wish as it floats into the sky. Then stroll the cobbled alleys of Jiufen lined with glowing red lanterns, browse for souvenirs, eat local taro desserts or settle in to a traditional teahouse and take it all in. This isn't a guided tour, so you're free to enjoy Jiufen on your own time. What's more, you'll even get the chance to meet likeminded travelers on the bus journey. It really is the best way to get to Jiufen from Taipei!

Driver was very punctual and leaves on the dot, so do not be late. Overall, it was a great experience but could have been better if more time was given to explore Shifen.


Pickup location was easy to find and trip was rather value for money (if you are staying in the Ximending area). However driver was not very helpful nor pleasant.


The driver is very punctual but a little too rigid.


The trip was very advisable if you are a nature lover type of person. You will sure enjoy the awesome scenery of Shifen old village and you could try to make a wish with the paper lantern. Jiufen old street was also amazing the views were very appealing. I totally enjoy this trip. Plus the shuttle bus driver was very punctual. The only thing i could suggest is at least the driver could have been speak and understand the basic english so that the message and instructions can relay to the travellers since almost all of the passengers are tourist not a local citizen.


This is a convenient way to travel though I hope they extend the time alloted at Shifen so we could go to the waterfalls :) All in all this isna great experience and klook is valuing its passenger's time. They are prompt and itinerary was strictly followed
