Overview
Visit Jiufen and Pingxi on a full-day trip from Taipei that includes a traditional sky lantern experience in Pingxi. With door-to-door transport from Taipei hotels, this small-group tour is a convenient way to see the Yin Yang Sea and Taiwan’s mountainous interior, where you'll find spectacular views across the coast, browse souvenir shops, and walk cobblestone streets in a pair of historic villages.
What to Expect
Meet a driver at your hotel in Taipei for the trip toward the Yin Yang Sea, on Taiwan’s northern coast, where you’ll see dramatically two-toned water and the nearby Golden Waterfall. Continue to the historic town of Jiufen, the set for the award-winning movie, Spirited Away, and enjoy some free time to purchase lunch at a local restaurant and visit one of the town’s atmospheric teahouses.
Following your time in Jiufen, head to Pingxi and browse the souvenir shops that line Shifen Old Street. Pingxi is the site of the annual Sky Lantern Festival, and you’ll have the chance to join in the tradition by writing your wishes on a lantern, lighting a candle at its base, and watching it drift away over the village. After launching your sky lantern, begin the scenic journey back to Taipei, where this tour concludes.

Despite the rain, it is very nice trip. The guide is nice but it would be better if he trying to explain more about story of places we visit than talking to the driver the whole time we are in the car.
