Start your journey with a visit to ShueiNanDong Golden Waterfall as you reach the hilly Northeastern Coast of Taiwan. The “Golden Waterfall” gets its name because the water passes through mining areas and interacts with sulfur, arsenic, and copper ores. This interaction triggers a series of chemical reactions, giving a bronze-like tint to the hillside. After admiring the spectacle of the Golden Waterfall, your next stop will be the Gold Museum, formerly known as the Gold Ecological Park. Here, in addition to the museum building, the park encompasses a vast area, featuring the mine tunnel, the Four Joined Japanese-style Residence and the Crown Prince Chalet, providing an immersive journey into Taiwan’s gold mining past. The museum proudly showcases a 220-kilogram gold bar, officially certified by the Guinness World Records in 2004, and visitors have the chance to physically experience this remarkable gold bar. Don’t miss the opportunity to touch the 999 gold bar with your hands when you visit the museum. Following your exploration of the Gold Museum, your journey continues to the Baoshishan (Baoshi Mountain) Lookout. This lookout is easily accessible, requiring just a short climb that’s suitable for people of all ages. From this vantage point, you can savor the breathtaking view of the Bay of Two Colors and relish the sight of the sunset. After enjoying the breathtaking ocean vista, your next highlight on the night tour is Jiufen Old Street. Whether you’ve visited during the daytime or not, Jiufen Old Street takes on an entirely different vibe after nightfall. The street is illuminated by red lanterns hanging from the rooftops, creating a mystical scene that resembles the scenes of the world-acclaimed animated film “Spirited Away,” produced by Ghibli Studios. While you’re in Jiufen, it’s highly recommended to visit one of the teahouses. There, you can not only savor the stunning scenery but also enjoy freshly brewed tea. In addition to the teahouses, you can sample a variety of local foods and shop for souvenirs. And if you have a sweet tooth, be sure not to overlook the traditional Jiufen dessert—Taro Ball! Lastly, as your tour comes to an end, you’ll make a stop at the Remains of the 13 Levels in Jinguashi, a former copper smelter established in 1933. Today it stands as an iconic landmark along Taiwan’s northeastern coast. Every evening, the Remains of the 13 Levels is illuminated by warm amber lights from 18:00 to 21:00. When observed from a distance, the structure evokes the appearance of an abandoned palace, which has made it a popular location for numerous drama and advertising shoots. After the tour, you can choose to to hop off at Raohe Street Night Market and immerse yourself in Taipei’s bustling nightlife, or return to MRT Zhongxiao Xinsheng Station.
