Ximen Station [西門站] → JiuFen [九份] → Jinguashi [金瓜石]

MRT(地铁) & Bus(巴士)

(1) Heading to JiuFen (九份)
We chose to take the public transport (bus) at Zhongxiao Fuxing Station to avoid long queue plus limited vacant seats at Ruifang Station (most of the blogger recommended to take bus at Ruifang Station). It’s an hours plus ride before reached Ruifang Station and headed to JiuFen. Remembered to hold tight the seat handle else you will get thrown out from your seat. No kidding, the bus driver very impatience and braked suddenly without pre-alert. I strongly recommended to take taxi if no budget concerned.

As usual, JiuFen old street always crowded with tourists with great attractions such as mountains view (you can view Yin Yang Sea 陰陽海 through JiuFen as well), fresh breeze, and narrow alley that line up with foods stores and souvenir shops that you never feel bored at. If to recommend must eat food, I would suggest Taro Ball 阿柑姨芋圓.

(2) Heading to Jinguashi (金瓜石)
Jinguashi was the last stop of the day. Noticed that sky went dark started 4 PM. This time we pay for the entrance ticket to visit gold museum because my family would like to touch the 220 KG real gold brick. I recommended to visit Jinguashi even though you are not interested with their mining history. I likes the fresh air, and calm environment there.
