2. Visit Jiufen

Take a train journey to the mountain town of Jiufen just east of Taipei. The village is built on the mountain slopes and is known for its steep and narrow alleyways through the old town. Spend your day exploring the traditional teahouses, streetfood shacks, and shops that crowd the town. Just outside of the town you will find the Gold Mine Museum and the abandoned gold mines.
