Road trip in Taiwan – Exploring Jiufen Old Street

Darwin on the rocks and around the world

Last November, we went to Taiwan for two weeks and we did a road trip around the island and it was fabulous ! The weather, the people.. and the food, oh the food…. it was just amazing ! We landed in Taipei and we started to drive clockwise around the island. Previous parts:

Keelung night market
Yehliu Geopark

After our visit of the incredible Yehliu Geopark, we headed towards Jiufen (just on time for lunch :p) ! Before entering the city, we found a massive temple a bit out of the way (our satnav took us via a very windy and narrow steep road). We stopped there and we managed to explore it on our own… no one was there ! It was really nice, and all the ornaments and decorations were impressive. Unfortunately, I didn’t take note of its name and can’t really find any information in my guidebook…
