What to expect

As any visitor to Taipei knows, the quaint and historic hillside villages of Jiufen and Shifen are the top places to visit near Taipei. But it's not so easy to get to them - until now! Avoid the slow buses and expensive taxis and book this extremely convenient transfer from Ximen. First stop is the Shifen Waterfall, which stands at 40 meters and is widely regarded as the most scenic in all of Taiwan. After exploring this picturesque waterfall, you can then head over to Shifen Old Street where you can decorate a paper lantern and make a wish as you set it afloat towards the sky. You will then be driven to Jiufen where you can stroll along the cobbled alleys lined with glowing red lanterns. You can shop for souvenirs, eat local taro desserts or settle in to a traditional teahouse and take in the magnificent mountain views. This isn't a guided tour, so you're free to enjoy Jiufen on your own time. Your final stop will be Keelung Miaokow Night Market, one of Taiwan's more traditional food-focused night markets where you can taste really delicious seafood at affordable prices. With a full belly, hop back on the bus for your return trip back to Ximen.
