    good deal except that shuttle bus driver did not speak English. He had an app to translate his instructions or asked another passenger to translate for us.

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!

    The van is clean and comfortable, the only set back is the pickup location needs to be more specified e.g. Near which building or landmarks or place a sign at the waiting area. As we almost missed the van. Overall we did enjoy very much. Thanks Ms Cheang

    Dear Sir / Mdm, everything was fine except the meet up on the start whereby i was 5min early to the meet up timing, but unable to see the bus, and i was panic that it might be a wrong location whereby i kept moving around the area to confirm. Would appreciate if there is a signage to inform us the waiting location or the bus could arrive 10min earlier. Another issue is we are suppose to find the bus with the orange klook logo at the front, but when i saw the bus, there was no logo or signage as indicated which makes me unsure if this is the correct bus.

    Very convenient way of going jiufen! Highly recommended!
  • Yi*** 21 Aug 2017
    Tour guide was very friendly and came on time. He was very informative and was patient with us even though we are not really familiar with chinese. Shifen was great but Jiufen was a little overcrowded. Recommend to go on weekdays and come prepared with umbrellas and sunglasses to shelter from the sun.
  • Ferng-Lyn* 20 Aug 2017
    Finding the bus to board was easy, and the trip to Shifen and Jiufen was convenient. The time spent at both places were also sufficient for us to explore fully. The only downside was that the bus could only drop us at the bottom at Jiufen which meant we had to walk a long flight of stairs up to the old street. Older people or people with weak knees would not be able to handle. Other than that, I would recommend others to book this shuttle.
  • Choon*** 20 Aug 2017
    Good experience. Mini bus was easy to locate. Time allocated was good enough to cover each area. Will be good if there is an additional tour to shifen waterfall.

    Convenient way to go north. Fast and a relax way of traveling.
  • Ricca*** 19 Aug 2017
    The driver was very friendly even though he doesn't know English much. But it was worth my money to pay for this trip! Would definitely recommend it 😊
  • WENG*** 17 Aug 2017
