What To Expect

Experience the old-world charm of Shifen and Pingxi and get to make your very own sky lantern in this half-day guided tour. A friendly, local guide will pick you up from your hotel in downtown Taipei and whisk you off to the Pingxi District of New Taipei City. Here you will get a chance to participate in a local custom that has been practiced for over hundreds of years: building a sky lantern. Once used as a signaling system for those living and working in the railroad industry, today you can paint your wishes and prayers onto the lantern before releasing it towards the sky. After this creative exercise, you will then explore Shifen Old Street, a collection of lanes and alleys in and around the Shifen railway station area. It’s a great place to grab some “xiaochi” snacks and quirky souvenirs. Your final stop is the scenic, 40-meter tall Shifen Waterfall, located 30 minutes away by walking northeast from the train platform area. Be sure to capture all your memories and keep snapping away with your camera!

    the tour was okay. it was raining so I had a hard time taking pictures. anyway, the sky lantern experience was good.
  • Rodelyn 17 Jul 2018
    My friend did a DIY and her expenses is way cheaper than the voucher I paid. But the experience was really amazing especially the lantern but we need to share lantern with other tourist in the tour. The tourist guide told us that he will give us 2 lanterns but ended only 1 lantern. We did not went to shifen old street. 😔

    This experience ultimately made our Taiwan trip very much satisfying. The tour was very informative, and we’ve got the best tour guide ever. Felix was very funny and easy to be with. He also made us at ease with the other tourists and helped in getting to know them. We felt the Taiwanese hospitality through him.

    I love the shifen tour. Our tour guide Mr. Felix Lao is very informative. We learn a lot about Taiwan. The tour company ( Edison Tours) also assisted us when we had to change our schedule. Thumbs up 👍 for Klook.

    We had such a smooth tour and it also ended promptly just before 12. The driver and guide were very professional and friendly. We had two kids with us but was totally hassle free.
