Normally the recommendation is to spend a day trip to jiufen in the evening , shifen at night for night lanterns and fireworks. Keelung night market for dinner. If you have kids, skip the prams and get a good driver. Jiufen is beautiful from late noon to evening and the atmosphere is fantastic. If there is a slight rain, it just enhance the whole nostalgic feel of the place. Abit of sadness and definitely poetic. Love this place but of course it’s Super crowded. Prams will never work here. Be sure to go if you haven’t.
