It was nice to visit and understand about the history of gold mining in this part of Taiwan during the yester years. In fact, this would probably be considered the capital city of Taiwan (as compared to Taipei) in the past as it was booming...More
We visited here at the end of a long day so didn’t have time for a visit to the museum but the scenery is really great. The river down to the sea runs over gold coloured rocks, stained that way by the copper mined during...More
This is one of the best places I've visited in Taipei.
It was a long ride from Yehliu to here but was worth the money riding the taxi.
The place feels different right from the entrance.
For me, it's not usual to find a museum...More
Think most tour group will just skip this attraction as it is not as commercialised and not much incentives for the tour agency.
The visit was very relaxed and you can really enjoy the serenity . The Gold Museum is suitable for family with young...More
Many exhibition centers were under maintenance on the day we visited. So we only entered the Environment building/Jinguashi Crown Prince Chalet/ Gold museum. I’ve been wanting to see the gold bar since I was little. I quite enjoyed it.
This was one of my favorite places in Taiwan. The charming Japanese buildings, and little museums, and gardens. I loved the trails and hikes too. Nice views of the mountains and sea are accessible. We took a bus up there from Juifen.
To get an idea of the place you need to understand some Chinese for the displays, it was nice walking through the mine and it was cheap. Not a must do, but something to do. The hike up the mountain to see the old shinto...More
This place is a mountain where the Japanese used locals to mine for gold. The walk up to the museum is a bit long, but the scenery is beautiful. (More on that later.) The museum is nice, though the entrance to the example mine was...More
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.
