An hour removed from the sparkling lights of Taipei is Jiufen, a mountainous region that was once a thriving gold mining colony. Views of mountains and the quaint narrow alleyways of the old town, are what draws visitors to Jiufen.

The old town itself is a labyrinth of narrow alleyways, adorned by shops and stalls that sells a variety of things that range from food to souvenirs. The sight dazzles while the aromas are bewitching.
