Top ways to experience Jinguashi Gold Ecological Park and nearby attractions

The area
Neighbourhood: 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. Gazing at the ShueiNanDong Remains of the 13 Levels, it is like a beautiful palace that was deserted, earning it the name of “Potala Palace of the Mountain Mines”. Probing forward to the mouth of the river is the considerably distinguished Yinyang Sea, with its half gold half bluish green spectacle inspiring countless imaginations of romance. Walking along the streets of the meandering old streets of Jiufen and tasting the various kinds of authentic eateries is the love of tourists. Stepping into the Golden Museum, one can glimpse the historical traces of the mining industry culture, reminiscing of past glories from its museum, living quarters, and shrine remains. The unassuming mountain city of Houtong used to be a mining village. With the call of cat lovers, volunteer groups were established to create a friendly environment for cats and turned Houtong into a cat village for cat lovers.

A place of an old gold mine,located in Taipei,Taiwan.
Its a place with beautiful view,like the green mountain,web looking like waterfall,etc.
And a place of history,with just 80 NT dollars you can get a ticket of the museum of the gold museum,where tells visitors the tale of a gold mine.
Plus if you want to taste Taiwanese food there are lots of choice around.

smaller scale compare to the one at shifen waterfall. Its a picture taking site. Not a hit spot if you intend to skip.

The place was nice. Don't expect much but I do recommend their bento. It's really delicious and I even purposely went back the 2nd time for lunch

Then you can hike up the hill to Shinto Shrine for a breathtaking view.

The waterfalls were roaring today with the rain which developed quite a roar which made it fun. There’s a lot of history here so do your homework.

We took bus 965 from Ximen and went all the way up here first. It is a very big park. We left our bags at the Information Centre which was manned by very friendly and helpful staff. We did not go all the way to the Shinto Shrine because we were short of time. We visited an interesting old Japanese house where the gold mine's management staff once stayed in. Further down, there is a crown prince's lodge with a sad-looking garden which is not worth visiting, There are some restaurants and cafes in the park where you can rest your feet and have your meals or drinks as well, at tourist price. Recommended to stop at the Information Centre in the park to ask and plan where you want to go... to see what. The Yingyang Sea, for example. FYI, you don't have to pay to go to the Information Centre. You should be able to take any bus back to Jiufen Old Street outside the park. (bus stop across the road)

The waterfall is just next to road, so you can park your car literally just in front of the waterfall. The water flowing is from closed mining factory so it is yellow in colour from gold mining.

After disembark from the bus there is a good 30 - 45 minutes hike throughout the place... Something to take pictures but nothing that "must see"... We then walk from here all the way to the waterfalls.

It is a museum park about gold mine in Jinguashi. It is actually not far from Jiufen. So, if you visit Jiufen, you can include this park in your itinerary. The entrance costs NT$ 80 and it allows you visit five key attractions in the park. If you just walk around, you don’t need to buy a ticket. It takes at least 2 hours to visit the whole park.

It was pouring with rain but this failed to dampen our enjoyment of this place. We were staying in Jiufen but started the day in Shuinandong and had worked our way up the hill by local buses, which was easy and straightforward.

The museum is spread across the hillside and offers number of different buildings. The Japanese style manager’s house felt authentic. The Crown Prince Chalet was a mild disappointment as we were keen to see inside and inspect the mini golf course, neither of which was possible, otherwise it looked beautiful. The walk to the shrine was charming but the highlight for many has to be the opportunity to touch the Big Gold Brick. It is every bit as exciting and as un-exciting as you can imagine. We left the room giggling like three small children.

You'll see the biggest gold brick in the world! You can try to lift the brick and take the photo. You can also see the Japanese Prince ancient house.
