Day 2 Taipei → Yehliu Geopark → Jiufen → Ximending
Located on the coast west of Keelung, Yeliu Geopark sits on a spit of land jutting out into the East China Sea that resembles the badlands regions of North America, or perhaps an alien landscape in a science fiction movie. The highlights of the site are the large “mushroom rocks,” so named for their resemblance to certain varieties of edible fungi. The most popular rock with tourists, by far, is the Queen’s Head Rock, a regal formation created in part by the corroding effects of seawater and wind. The geopark is also a favorite with fossil fans, with many beautifully preserved, timeless specimens etched into the landscape.
Jiufen owes its existence to gold (which was discovered in the hills behind the village in the late 19th century), and later to copper. The area around Jiufen and neighboring Jinguashi was discovered to hold one of east Asia’s richest sources of precious metals, and there was a huge influx of islanders to work the mines, which gave the area such prosperity that Jiufen became known as “Little Shanghai.” It boasted bars, a movie theater, and even performances of Chinese opera. It’s estimated that the two villages attracted over 100,000 workers during the 1920s.
Located in west Taipei, Ximending is one of the most popular tourist spots among both local and international travelers. Ximending features a wide selection of fashionable clothing and accessories in many styles include Japanese, Chinese and Western. It is often a gathering site for young people and has been noted the most fashionable and popular shopping area in Taiwan.
