What To Expect

Avoid the pricey taxi fares or crowded tourist buses and embark on the most flexible and most convenient way to visit Yehliu Geopark and the scenic sights of Taiwan's northeast coast. Depart from Ximending and drive to Yehliu before the crowds to take in the incredible scenes of fascinating 'honeycomb' and 'mushroom' rock formations caused by weathering. Stroll along the windy cape and snap pictures in front of the phenomenal Queen's Head rock - visit now as it's predicted the formation won't be around many years more! Next you'll drive past the 'Ying Yang Sea' where natural ions create a swirl of blue and yellow water in the bay, reminiscent of the ancient Chinese symbol. Look up hill to see the 'Remains of the 13 Levels', a former copper-smelting refinery, but now a popular spot for some industrial-chic Instagram snaps, then see the glittering cascade of the Golden Waterfall. Continue up to the top of the hill to Jiufen village, one of the most popular things to do in Taipei. Jiufen, which experienced a gold rush during the Japanese occupation, is a maze of narrow alleys, traditional stores, red lanterns and quaint tea houses nestled into the mountainside. After two hours of freetime, journey to Shifen, a village built beside the rail tracks, where you can paint a colorful lantern with your wishes before sending it gliding into the sky. Hop back on the bus to be delivered back to Ximen in time for dinner.

  • Christine*** 18 Aug 2017
    Free water were given to passengers. The bus driver did not speak english but he did bring and flashed english instructions. Ample time was alloted for each stop. Overall, the experience was great.
  • TING*** 17 Aug 2017
    Good. Everyone in the same bus is punctual. 👍 However, if Travelling with elderly, not ideal to buy because the timing for youngsters to walk is legit just nice only, not much extra time.,
  • Joa* 17 Aug 2017
    The trip was worth the money, highly recommended. It would be better if the drivers would at least speak some basic English specially when giving instructions. Good thing there were a few people from our group who can speak Chinese and English. Other than that everything was okay :)
  • Cheri* 17 Aug 2017
    Good experience! It will be great if drivers can speak basic English.
  • Lenar*** 16 Aug 2017
    The trip was fun. We got to see different sites outside Taipei and learn more about Taiwanese culture. I think it would be better if the time given to the tourists for each site is longer so people can appreciate the sites more. Also, It would be nice if the users of Klook be notified which trip they are signing up for - English tour or Chinese tour.
  • Teresit* 16 Aug 2017
    we enjoyed the whole tour, though going to jiufen was so exhausted because of going up the stairs to reach the jiufen..the driver don't speak english but thanks to the guest who translated it in english so we can understand what he was trying to say. But overall it was nice and great adventure😊
  • Louise*** 16 Aug 2017
    Hassle free transportation to places outside Taipei.
  • JIA*** 14 Aug 2017
    Would give 2.5 - 3. It's actually much cheaper but just slightly less convenient to take public transport to these places, as I found out later on. I would personally advise so. The tour is really just a ferrying service with no guidance. At jiufen, you will be asked to take a public bus for 2 stops to the actual street. It cost 24 dollars. Also, the minivan was packed. There were 16-17 people. I got a very uncomfortable seat. It has a hump underneath so my legs were bent and propped up as well. Similar to a squat except I was seated. The space was so small that even as an asian lady, my knee was touching the back of the seat just in front of me. So if you're tall, this is probably not the best transport arrangement. Bumpy journey back to Ximen. Sounds and felt like things were going to fall out of the minivan with all that bumpy motion.

    The instructions in the voucher is not clear. I had to walk until the end of the street from Exit 4 of Ximen MRT station. I am very lucky the locals are very helpful and they called the local number of Klook here in Taiwan. I got there on time. The driver can speak little English but he is very friendly. Overall, it was a good experience.
