We stayed in the huge family room across the street, down a few steps, that accommodates up to ten people. It was raining so we unfortunately couldn’t enjoy the view but could imagine it would be amazing. Rated average because we had two problems: One,...More
Nothing bad to say about this guesthouse at all. Friendly hosts, great location, and cute decor. The lady checking me in gave me useful directions for exploring the Jiufen streets and some good food tips. The guesthouse offers a beautiful sea view and easy access...More

Nice hotel, big rooms with cozy balconies and a nice view. Should maybe be some furnitures on the balcony. Nice breakfast as well as nice shower and bed. Cheap and good location easy to find your way up to old street.
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. Gazing at the ShueiNanDong Remains of the 13 Levels,
it is like a beautiful palace that was deserted, earning it the name of “Potala Palace of the Mountain Mines”. Probing forward to the mouth of the river is the considerably distinguished Yinyang Sea, with its half gold half bluish green spectacle inspiring countless imaginations of romance. Walking along the streets of the meandering old streets of Jiufen and tasting the various kinds of authentic eateries is the love of tourists. Stepping into the Golden Museum, one can glimpse the historical traces of the mining industry culture, reminiscing of past glories from its museum, living quarters, and shrine remains. The unassuming mountain city of Houtong used to be a mining village. With the call of cat lovers, volunteer groups were established to create a friendly environment for cats and turned Houtong into a cat village for cat lovers.
