Jiufen Old Street(九份老街)

Someone may say that Jiufen’s rising popularity is due to the movie “City of Sadness,” however, that is only because they have not finely experience the real beauty of this charming place. Not only has Jiufen preserve numerous old architectures of the Japanese colonial period, it also has maintained the unique atmosphere of a mountain city. While today’s Old Street continues to brim with people, it still maintains a quiet trail excellent for sightseeing. When in Jiufen, make sure to eat a bowl of taro ball dessert and sample an array of nostalgic small eats. Together, Jishan Street, Shuqi Road and Chingbien Road form a real-life storybook. Here is where you can explore the exciting story of Jiufen and simultaneously eat and shop. If you have ample time in your hands, have a visit at the Gold Museum to get a glimpse of the mining scenario back in its heyday.

有人說,九份走紅都是因為電影《悲情城市》,但那可能是沒有細細體驗九份的美好才會這樣認為。九份不僅保留著日據時代的舊式建築,更重要的是山城的氛圍。雖然今日的老街總是人聲鼎沸,但只有在九份,才能享受到特有的小徑通幽賞景之樂。到這裡,不能免的似乎一定要吃碗芋圓,其實這裡的懷舊小吃還有很多選擇,在基山街、豎崎路及輕便路三條街道形成一個真實版故事屋,在這裡可以一探九份精彩的故事,可以邊逛邊吃,邊吃邊走。時間多的話,就到黃金博物館去走走,更可以窺見昔日淘金盛況的些許風貌。
