One of the most touristic places in Taiwan, Is Jiufen. In the past it was just another town among many but a famous movie was made here and the whole place came alive, There are tons of markets and small eats all around and that 7-Eleven there? wow is it ever packed!
This is another reason why it is so popular, Before it became popular it was one of the most quiet places you could live in. Nestled on a mountain far from the main city and full of fresh air all around, So fresh that I barely felt the heat even though the forecast called for at least 35 degrees!
It really is an amazing place, Almost like a world frozen in time. Truly, Such beauty and islands all the way across the horizon
Inside there are food stalls and stores along a narrow corridor. They sell everything from juice to lotions to clothing and even sandals, Yep! Sandals! gotta keep people walking right 😛
Among the yummy eateries was a stall selling grilled mushrooms, Glai and I could smell it from 50 feet away and when we found it? We knew we had to try, It is SO tender and juicy! If only I remembered the name of the stall though, It cost the equivalent of 2 dollars Canadian :O
Yep, I am definitely coming back here again, There is still so much to see and so many temples to visit along the roads leading back to the city. There’s something about the art that really catches my eyes 🙂
