The place is part of the mining place and is full of history. It boasts of their well-maintained manicured gardens and museum. The staff are so accommodating (even if it was so hard for them to speak in English). I recommend that you bring a...More

This was our very first stop arriving at Taiwan. The cold, the rain and the mist made this quite an interesting stop. We did enjoy the scenic view of the park within the museum but as for the museum itself, as we didn't really look...More

A remnant of an old goldmine. Nice walks, some restored buildings. It is the next town and about 15 minutes by bus from Jiufen. There were some POWs forced to work the mine and harshly treated by the Japanese. But very little remains to be...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.
