Itinerary

Cat Village Houtong → Jiufen Old Street → Golden Waterfall → Remains of the 13 Levels → Yin Yang Sea
  • Cat Village Houtong

    Coal played an important role as Taiwan entered its own industrial revolution era, and Houtong was one of Taiwan's largest coal-mining sites up until the 1970s. The plentitude of coal attracted many migrants from around the country. However, oil later replaced coal when electric trains took over. The coal mining industry began to fall into decline in the 1990s. As a result, Houtong became just another train stop along the Yilan Line that most travelers bypassed.

  • Jiufen Old Street

    Jiufen used to the center of gold mining. It is located within the hills in northeast of Taiwan. The village is next to the mountain and facing the sea. In 1890, someone struck gold near Jiufen (Jioufen). The poor village with only nine families soon attracted prospectors of 4,000 families. The village once was gold city of Asia and called little Shanghai or little Hong Kong. However, with the decline of gold mining activities, Jiufen (Jioufen) fades. Later, several movies chose to shoot here and the movies won international acknowledgement. For example, the film the Sad City has won first prize in Venice Film Festival and awakened people's memory of Jiufen (Jioufen). It seems that the prosperous old streets, buildings, mines and the glamorous gold digging days are flashing before our eyes. The place is whispering its golden past. Now, there are many unique teahouses in Jiufen (Jioufen). These teahouses are best stops during visit to this mountain village. Also, there is the beautiful ocean view of Keelung outer sea.

  • Golden Waterfall

    Golden Waterfall is located near the Gold Ecological Park in Jinguashi. Although real gold flowing from these falls would be too good to be true, the water is certainly a beautiful gold color as a result of the combination of regular rainfall in this mining area and the abundance of heavy metal elements deposited in the riverbed. The cascade of gold flowing down the hillside contrasts to the luminous green grass at its head. Indeed, the natural beauty of this place makes it a favorite for photography among newly-weds. But it’s not just star-struck lovers who will fall for this place, we guarantee impressive photographs to everyone who makes a visit.

  • Remains of the 13 Levels

    The smelter structure is built into a hillside in Shuinandong Recreation Area and its tiered construction lends itself the name “Remains of the 13 Levels”, although, ironically, there is said to be a total of 18 levels.

  • Yin Yang Sea

    Located beside the northern coastal road in the Gold Ecological Park region is Yin Yang Sea, a curiously colored patch of water. The complementary blue and yellow coloring of this bay brings to mind the ancient Chinese principle of yin and yang, the natural concept of duality. Just as with the dichotomy of light and dark, or cold and hot, Yin Yang Sea expresses a natural balance of two sides of a mutual whole. This awe-inspiring scene provides a perfect opportunity to pause and contemplate what other contrary forces in nature are actually interconnected concepts. Remove assumptions, take a step back, and open your mind to the beauty of nature.
