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!

Very time efficient. Driver is always on time. Saves you time in lining up for public transportation especially during peak hours


Very convenient service for pick up at ximending to shifen and jiufen and back to ximending. The only downside was the drop off and pick up at jiufen. The distance to the jiufen entrance was quite far and the route is a slope. Understand that the shuttle bus are not allow to pick up or drop off near the jiufen entrance. Can look into this issue and the experience will be perfect.


The car ride over was good, the driver is professional and the car is kept clean, only problem we encountered was having proper instructions when we arrived at the jiufen parking lot, took us a while to figure out where to go, and what to do, and the driver left quite quickly. Other than that the ride was great and quick.


This is an option to visit Shifen and Jiufen if you stay near Ximen Station as the meet up was outside this station. For whatever reason, driver finally arrived after 45 minutes wait( We were early - reached the pick up area at 8.30am as instruction was if you are late, the bus will not wait) for almost 30 minutes after making 2 successful calls to Klook. Despite the wait, the journey was smooth and worth the price paid for.


very convenient! easy pick up and adequate time given at each location! good choice for a fuss-free day trip!
