Time for some sight seeing. The first destination for our second day was Jiufen九份. We took a train to Zhong Xiao Fu Xing 忠孝復興站 followed by a bus to Jiufen九份. The bus journey was slightly more than an hour.
The bus stop is opp SOGO
It is right in front of this shop
Check with the locals which bus to take
The alternative transportation to Jiufen九份 is to take a cab down. It is so much fast (approx 30 mins). If you want to have a local fell of it, take a bus.
Jiufen九份 is rather cold because it is located at the top of the hill. I did not know that until I reached there. Know what. I was in my short jumper. How smart. Fortunately, there was a store that sell tights. Anyway, Jiufen九份 is quite easy to travel around. There’s a lot of things to eat there. And of cause, here are some of the food that are really good.
There are many other stalls that sell those handmade fishballs in Jiufen九份. You can give other stalls a try and tell me if its good 😀
Peanut Ice Cream Wrap
This is something that you can’t miss when you go to Jiufen九份. It’s really really really good. After eating one, we went back to buy another one because it’s so good and so special!

We went to this small ancient museum that display all those ancient things like those toys that we used to play when we were young, the big big CD that my dad used to listen to old songs, etc. They have that kind of palace costumes worn by princess and people are allowed to try on. By the way, there is an entrance fee of TWD$150. It doesn’t cost a lot.
After finish touring at Jiu Fen 九份, we went to Shihfen 十份. We took a bus followed by a train from Rui Fang station to Shihfen station. It’s just a few stations away.
Actually, there is nothing much you can do at Shihfen 十份. What we did was visit the Shihfen Waterfall and “Fang Tian Deng”!!!! This is the only place you can “Fang Tian Deng” if I am not wrong.

You will need to pass by this bridge

The Big Water Fall!
The Shihfen Waterfall is very beautiful. If you are planning to go there, pray that it doesn’t rain. It rained when we went there and got all wet! We toured around the Shihfen Waterfall. It was very peaceful when we went there because there’s no one at all!
What’s next? We went to “Fang Tian Deng”. It was my first time experience and it’s kinda fun. You can buy it back to Singapore if you want.
Time for dinner after the whole day of activities. Tired yet happy. Sightseeing isn’t that boring after all. Haha. We went XiMenDing Fei Tian Hot Pot for dinner. Their hot pot is good. I love their spicy soup. It’s so shiok when you drink it on a cold weather. Quality of the food is good and they served Haagen Daz Ice Cream! Not like Singapore! Haha.
Back to hotel after dinner 😀
