    What to Expect
    Start your private tour with hotel pickup and settle into your private vehicle for the drive to Yehliu National Geopark, located less than one hour away from Taipei. Take the Great Ocean Road to this remarkable coastal destination in northern Taiwan, renowned for its rocky promontory overlooking the bay.

    On arrival, snap photos of Yehliu's geological phenomena, including namesake boulders such as Queen’s Head. Savor a seafood lunch at the harbor, after which you’re driven to Jiufen, a once-prosperous then abandoned gold mining town that now draws inspiration for the movie industry. You may recognize filming sites for A City of Sadness and the Oscar-winning animated feature Spirited Away as you stroll past cozy teahouses lining the cobblestones of Jiufen Old Street. If you’re tempted, you can try snacks such as sweet taro balls, rice cakes and grilled squid (own expense).

    See old houses in Jiufen’s residential area and explore a mountain pathway for a scenic glimpse of the Pacific Ocean before your guide takes you to the Shengping Theater House. Originally built for the mineworkers' after-hours entertainment, it was the first movie theater in northern Taiwan. Admire the restored ticket office, seats and stage, as well as vintage movie posters and defunct equipment. 

    After you've learned more about Jiufen’s cinematic past, your private tour of ends with return transport to your hotel in Taipei.

    Please note: A minimum of two people per booking is required.

    Dear Julia, It was nice working with you for the past months. Thank you for the positive feedback about our service. It feels like I was traveling with you in Taiwan as well when reading your review. It’s wonderful to know that Vicky prepared quizzes complete with jellies as reward for answering correctly, to keep the children entertained. No wonder the children didn’t want to go home haha. We really look forward to your next visit to Taiwan! Best Regards, Shirley
