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!

    Everything went smoothly. Will definitely book again.
  • Cand* 25 Jul 2017
    Driver is so friendly, helpful and punctual. Taking an air-conditioned mini bus is so comfortable and time saving especially during the summer holiday. Time spending in both of Shifen and Jiufen is sufficient. The whole journey is on schedule without any delay even there is a bit traffic congestion on our return trip back to Ximen.
  • LO* 25 Jul 2017
    For those staying at XMD area and would like to venture to Shifen and JIuFen. But is too lazy to switch train to bus or find cabbing too expensive. This is highly recommended. Driver is friendly and the mini bus ride is comfortable. Value for money. Time given imho is sufficient for both places. You get to create a Chinese Lantern (天燈) with wishes written on it at Shifen as you lite it up to the sky. it is food galore at Jiufen, taste the many delicacies as you walk through the sheltered valley from taro rice balls to the traditional fish balls.
  • TungTa* 24 Jul 2017
    Nice, great, attractive
  • Yi*** 23 Jul 2017
    We had a pleasure travel taking this package. And we noticed that even the driver did not know how to communicate in English, he asked if our group has anyone know how to speak English to help the other couple who is in our group. The driver is also very considerate to ensure everyone is back on the bus even they are late by the traffic in Jiufeng. I will definitely recommend Klook to my friends and consider the package if I am travelling to other countries again.
  • Mary*** 23 Jul 2017
