Shihfen Old Street is famous for the wonders of the streets, shops and crowds right aside the train lane. You will experience a whole different type of street market. Afterward, continue to Jiufen Mountain Town. According to legend, when the land road was not opened, all supplies were supplied through sea transportation. Since there were nine households in the village, they were required to prepare the "nine portions" whenever they bought the goods. Overtime, people named it Jiufen, which means nine portions in Chinese. In the 1930s, with the rise in the price of gold, Jiufen, the splendid grandeur of the “Asian Golden Capital” was created. At that time, people called it “small Shanghai” and “small Hong Kong”. Lately, with the retrospective trend, it has become a popular tourist destination. (B, L)
