What To Expect

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!

  • Recivall*** 20 Jun 2017
    Despite not being able to speak English, our bus driver was still able to guide us through the experience. Everything went smoothly from pick-up at Ximen station, to Shifen, to Jiufen and finally to our drop-off back at Ximen. Will definitely book this activity again on our next visit to Taiwan.
  • Ruben*** 20 Jun 2017
    Very convenient tour. The bus arrived at the meeting station on time. The driver is good although he cannot speak english well, he just writes instructions where & what time to meet. Just enough time given to explore shifen & jiufen.
  • Pi* 20 Jun 2017
    Excellent service. Driver was prompt and helpful. Shuttle bus was clean. Free water. Overall excellent.
  • JIA*** 19 Jun 2017
    Driver was punctual and brought us to destination on time. The bus was comfortable and we slept throughout the ride. Booking the shuttle bus was a great decision because we saved a lot of time and trouble to travel by ourselves! It is also inexpensive!
