What To Expect
The northeast coast of Taiwan is home to verdant scenery, quaint villages and fascinating geography, and is a popular swimming and day trip spot for locals. After a pick up from your hotel, you'll travel by air-conditioned coach to scenic Pitou Cape, lined with caves and sheer overhanging cliff faces, and offering fantastic ocean views. Onwards to Nanya, the area's unique erosion and weathering has created a veritable sculpture garden, with rocks that sport a beautiful striped pattern caused by an oxidation reaction. The village of Jiufen is next on the itinerary. This 1890s gold mining boomtown has since faded into a quaint village you see today, but is well worth visiting for the street snacks, flourishing teahouses and a fascinating glimpse into life during its golden era.
