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!

    Good bus driver and very fast response . Worth and value for price
  • Simone Wan Qi 19 Feb 2018
    Recommend to take the afternoon session!Book in advance because it sold out very quickly.Basically it's a free and easy tour where they pick you up and drop you at shi fen and jiu fen then you discover on your own.Eventhough the guide cant speak english or korean,but need not worry, he will use language translator.
  • Roniela 19 Feb 2018
    We were quite a number of foreigners in the group who didnt speak Mandarin. It was quite challenging because our driver didnt know how to speak English. He used google translate but it failed on him on the most critical part of our tour. Because if chinese new year, small buses are not allowed to go up to Jiufen. Instead, he dropped us off at the foot of the mountain, Shuinandong Station,5km away from Jiufen. And we didnt get ditection which bus # to take. He dropped us off at 1.30pm and he said we should be back at the same stop at 530. Almost half of us didnt make the 530pm meeting time. We left at 550 but still many were left behind. Shifen and Jiufen are wirth the journey. If you are 3 or more in a group, I suggest just take a private taxi from Taipei which is around 4500twd/8 hrs.

    I love this tour ! . . On time shuttle with free bottle water. for all the passengers. Our driver is also the the tour guide too. but the problem is he only speaks mandarin. But we manage the trip. Aside from that highly recommended !

    Travel was convenient. The tour guide was kind and accommodating. We just had some problem looking for shuttle bus at every stop / pick up point.

  • Wendy 13 Feb 2018
    Great day out, easy with parents. Shuttle bus was easy to find in Ximen and arrived and departed on time. Driver was friendly and gave basic information about Jiufen and Shifen (not sure if he speaks English though) Highly recommended !

    Driver was on time and journey was smooth. However I felt that time time at jiufen was kinda too long, maybe we could shorten it in the future
FAQs

Activity Q&A

Q: Can I come back from Jiufen the next day ?

A: This bus only provides a same-day return. If you would like to stay overnight in Jiufen, please make sure that you tell the driver so that the driver and passengers on the bus won’t wait for you unnecessarily. Please note that you won’t get any compensation if you don’t take the return journey. You will have to organize your own transport back the next day when you decide to return.

Q: Does a 15 month old baby need to buy a ticket?

A: Yes, all travelers must buy a ticket, even babies. The price is the same as for adults. The charge is mainly for the operator to buy insurance for every passenger.

Q: Do we have time to go to Shifen waterfall and to fly lanterns at Shifen?

A: Not quite enough. We suggest you just fly the lanterns and walk along Shifen Old Street. Since it takes about 40 minutes just to walk to and from Shifen Waterfall.
