Jiufen Photos and extra tips on my blog:
Nowadays, #Jiufen is a popular tourist attraction and quite legendary for its stunning scenery from the A-mei tea house.
The A-mei tea house is perhaps the best known attraction in Jiufen, rumor goes it was featured in Ghibili’s Spirited Away (Anime movie) by Hayao Miyazaki.

Since Jiufen is an hour drive east of the capital Taipei, you may want to make Jiufen a day trip with a possible stop at Keelung city.
In Jiufen I recommend you start with the Jiufen Old Street which is a market street with many food vendors selling delicious treats like stinky tofu, almond drinks, fish balls and peanut ice cream wraps.
These are my 5 Things to do in Jiufen:
1. Jiufen Old Street
2. Stinky Tofu
3. Almond Drink
4. Peanut Ice Cream Wrap
5. A-Mei Tea House #Ghibli
Make sure you visit Jiufen in good physical condition since the stairways can be very steep so do not forget a good pair of running shoes. It could also rain a lot so an umbrella is highly recommended.
