Taiwan | Meandering through the Alleys of Jiufen

Jiufen is a village up in the mountain of New Taipei City with narrow, steep roads and alleys. I am surprised by the volume of tourists that flock to this place. But who wouldn't be charmed by the quaintness of Jiufen, the cool temperature and the beautiful view of the ocean?


Jiufen is home to the Shengping Theater, a performance venue for operas, puppet shows and film screenings, built during the Japanese occupation in Taiwan. The theater, for a time, was destroyed by the elements of nature but has since then been restored, giving the visitors a feel of the place during its heyday.

It's easy to get lost in the maze of steep alleys lined with tea houses and food stalls. But that's part of the fun of being drawn to the old charm of Jiufen.

Food stalls and street food

Big block of nougat which instantly became my favorite.

The way to order meals in Taiwan.

A permanent fixture in every meal.

Piping hot dishes
