Photo Diaries : Jiufen, Taiwan


Jiufen is one of a must see place whenever you’re in Taiwan. Being here feels like I’m at the top of the world! The view of the tea houses and the Pacific Ocean is just stunning! Btw, Jiufen is a small town at the north mountainous part of Taiwan facing the sea and it is one of the most popular tourist attraction visited by travelers from all over the world and I’m very happy to be able to visit here! Another off my bucket list!

Jiufen is not far from the main city of Taipei. It’s just an hour or two away drive from the city and with the very convenient transport system Taiwan has (I must say), there are no reason for you not to visit this beautiful place!

How to get there from Taipei?

We managed to reach the small town of Juifen by bus. The only bus we knew (based on research) that would take us to Jiufen is bus no. 1062. Since we are staying in the place called Banqiao, we have to take an MRT from Fuzhong MRT Station to Zhongxiao Fuxing MRT Station. From there, Take MRT exit #1 and make a U-turn. Walk a minute and take the 1st left and then after a few meters you will see a bus stop where Bus no. 1062 will stop. Of course it will not always be there so you’ll have to wait for the bus to arrive. The bus will directly take you to Jiufen. You will always know where to go down because you’re not the only one from that bus that will be visiting the famous tourist destination 😉 hehe


The bus stop behind me is where we went down from the no. 1062 bus from Taipei City 🙂
