Since we arrived in Jiufen late in afternoon, we didn’t have the chance (or time) to walk around the town area. So, in order to fully maximise our time, we woke up early to experience what is like to walk on the famous streets. Besides, free breakfast was provided by the guesthouse’s owner.
We left our bags in the room as we didn’t intend to bring our bags along; all thanks to the lesson we learnt on Day 2.
It took us approximately 5 minutes (or less) to walk to the narrow streets of Jiufen. On the plus note, we were heading down hill instead of climbing up.
The streets were so narrow that it could barely fit 3 people side by side. And by 10am, the streets were filled with tourists. There were lots of shops along the streets which that sell variety of things such as food products and souvenirs.
We wandered further down before we stopped at a common place where our driver will be waiting for us.
We left Jiufen approximately 11am and along the way to Taipei, the driver was kind enough to stop a few more places for us to have a look. We did stop at the Golden Waterfall again for another round.
The condition was no better than the previous night as the weather was cloudy/foggy/misty/dull.
