The northern section of the coastline looks out onto the East China Sea and the eastern section faces the Pacific.
Yehliu
Geo Park / Queen's Head / Fairy Shoe: Yeliou is the most remarkable of all Taiwan’s northern scenic areas.  A promontory that stretches 1,700 meters into the sea and contains a bewildering variety of rock formations forms the park.  Erosion has revealed different types of rock that have been embedded in strata and have been shaped by wind and waves. Lunch with great local sea food and continue to explore the charming little town of JiuFen
JiuFen
: Historic Commercial District--old street, Songde Park, Wufan Tunnel, Some spots of Spirited Away

The village once was gold city of Asia and called little Shanghai or little Hong Kong. However, with the decline of gold mining activities, Jiufen fades. Later, several movies chose to shoot here and the movies won international acknowledgement. For example, the film the Sad City has won first prize in Venice Film Festival and awakened people's memory of Jiufen. It seems that the prosperous old streets, buildings, mines and the glamorous gold digging days are flashing before our eyes.
