Pingxi and Jiufen Day Trip from Taipei with Sky Lantern Experience

Take a step back in time with a full day tour of Jinguashi, Jiufen, and Pingxi, three charming northern Taiwan towns renowned for their charm, history and culture. Jinguashi is famous for its gold mines, so naturally we'll be bringing you inside one on the tour (the gold is long gone, alas, but you're free to look). Jiufen is the inspiration for the Miyazaki classic Spirited Away, so expect to be similarly enchanted as we wander the narrow cobblestone streets. And Pingxi is where Taiwanese people go to send their wishes into the heavens, literally, with the help of lanterns. (We'll teach you how, so bring a few wishes along).

Just a stone’s throw away from bustling Taipei, this tour will allow you to bask in the different old world atmospheres of three beautiful towns, take in astounding scenery and learn about Taiwan's cultural heritage.
