TOURIST TRAP!? JUIFEN TRAIN FROM TAIPEI TO RUIFANG STATION | Taiwan Travel Vlog 117, 2018
Visiting Jiufen Old Street, and taking the train from Taipei to Ruifang train station, was easier than expected. But is Juifen worth visiting in 2018? ⬇ Click 'Show More' to expand ⬇
Jiufen village is just a train ride away from Taipei Taiwan - but is it worth the travel? To get there we needed to catch the train to Ruifang station first, then grab a taxi to Jiufen old street. Pretty cheap and easy to do in the end.
The old street and streets are cool, it's interesting to see a different side to Taipei and Taiwan, but definitely watch the video to get our opinion on if you should bother with the travel from Taipei to Juifen in 2018.

15 Things To Do in TAIWAN for First-timers | Taiwan Travel Guide | #Taiwan2017
SORRY ABOUT THE MISSING BACKGROUND MUSIC. I GUESS IT’S A COPYRIGHT ISSUE AND WAS REMOVED BY THE ARTIST.
Here are 15 things to do if it's your first time in Taiwan. I know we could have done a lot more things like ride the Maokong Gondola among other more exciting activities but we had my father with us who is 70 years old so we were kinda limited to doing easier and more convenient things. This trip was my birthday gift to him.
We will definitely go back and do my coffee crawl.
Enjoy and see you on the next video!

5 Things to do in Jiufen, Taiwan
Jiufen is considered the most iconic village of #Taiwan due to it being an unique mountain village that was used in the past as a gold mining town. Subscribe to my channel ► for weekly videos!

Jiufen Photos and extra tips on my blog:
Nowadays, #Jiufen is a popular tourist attraction and quite legendary for its stunning scenery from the A-mei tea house.
The A-mei tea house is perhaps the best known attraction in Jiufen, rumor goes it was featured in Ghibili's Spirited Away (Anime movie) by Hayao Miyazaki.

Taipei Unlimited Travel Pass:(ONLY $39 USD)
Since Jiufen is an hour drive east of the capital Taipei, you may want to make Jiufen a day trip with a possible stop at Keelung city.
In Jiufen I recommend you start with the Jiufen Old Street which is a market street with many food vendors selling delicious treats like stinky tofu, almond drinks, fish balls and peanut ice cream wraps.
These are my 5 Things to do in Jiufen:
1. Jiufen Old Street
2. Stinky Tofu
3. Almond Drink
4. Peanut Ice Cream Wrap
5. A-Mei Tea House #Ghibli
Make sure you visit Jiufen in good physical condition since the stairways can be very steep so do not forget a good pair of running shoes. It could also rain a lot so an umbrella is highly recommended.
