If you like history or photographing old buildings then a visit here is worthwhile. Our guide took us to various locations around the ruins. Pictures from the top of the hill looking down are amazing.

This is an old refinery in this old mining area which is no longer in use. I like the fact that it has the mountain as its backdrop.

Ruifan District
With its air of historical heritage, Shuijinjiu
(ShueiNanDong, Jingguashi, Jiufen) used to be
prosperous and glamorous due to mining. Although its
magnificent semblance no longer exists, the peaceful
and beautiful atmosphere has persisted. With a wave to
the age of the gold rush, one can still see a glimpse
of its glorious past through the Golden Waterfall.
