It was nice to visit this place. Although there were different segments in the park, it was not much but it had a great view.

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

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

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

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.

You can consider hire a taxi guide instead of taking public transport. More flexible and value for money if traveling with family
