Take a day trip from Taipei to explore the best of the northeast coast of Taiwan. Visit the scenic town of Shifen, stroll along the old cobblestoned streets in Jiufen, and marvel at Yehliu Geopark's unique landscape. Choose between a shared tour with other travelers or a private tour. If you select the shared tour option, make your way to the meeting point in Taipei. If you select the private tour option, you'll be picked up at your hotel. Once you are with your guide, drive toward Shifen. Upon arrival in Shifen, discover a town rich in culture, history, and natural scenery, including Shifen Waterfall. Create a Chinese lantern with a wish written on it, then release it into the sky. Next, continue to Jiufen to continue exploring Taiwan's history and culture. Walk along the famous Old Street and admire the Japanese-inspired architecture. Have the chance to eat local food (not included) while you're there, too. Later, visit the natural classroom Yehliu Geopark. Explore the bizarre terrain formed by thousands of years of geological movement, which have forced the mountain to jut out of the ocean. Admire the Queen's Head rock formation and more before returning to Taipei.
