  • See the unique “Yin-Yang Sea” in the old mining town of Ruifang

    Take a step back in time on this trip to Yehliu Geopark, Jinguashi, Jiufen, and Pingxi — these towns recently revived as popular tourist attractions and centers of history and culture. These charming, old-world destinations are great for romantic outings, nostalgic walks, and dining in traditional restaurants and teahouses.

    Take in amazing views of the ocean and surrounding landscapes while getting taught about the area’s history. Wander the narrow-cobbled streets of Jiufen, a town famous for having been an inspiration for the Miyazaki classic Spirited Away. Later, in Pingxi, make a lantern and send it up with your very own wish.

    This tour will allow you to bask in the old-town atmosphere, take in beautiful scenery, and learn a thing or two about the area’s cultural heritage.
