If you decide to customize your tour, the best part of this is you can get to choose up to 6 attractions within Jiufen to visit all within a day! But to be practical, it is strongly recommended to keep your itinerary to around 4 or 5 attractions so as to get the maximum mileage of your anticipated trip to Taiwan. Here’s the list of the attractions you can choose from 🙂

Well, we have been there and with this great deal to choose from, there are even more reasons to pick beautiful Taiwan in your itinerary.

Here we are at Shifen Waterfall. Shifen Waterfall (十分瀑布) is the most renowned cascading waterfall in Taiwan. Although not nearly the tallest the island has to offer, it’s is certainly the widest at an impressive 40 meters. Because of its horseshoe shape and powerful flow, it is nicknamed the Little Niagara of Taiwan. Recessed within a beautiful forested mountainside setting, this waterfall often delights visitors with a bright rainbow on sunny days. Its colorful spectacle has also lent the waterfall its other nickname of “Rainbow Pond”.

Shifen Old Street is a bustling hub for those eager to get a glimpse of an old railroad town which still retains the charm of yesteryear. Originally built to transport coal, the Shifen Old Street stop has now become one of the most popular on the Pingxi rail-line. It is easy to see why so many are drawn here – local food, souvenir shops and puffing trains add to the charm of this little gem, as well as make it a fantastic place for photography. A must try to light the lantern and fly it up to the sky!

At 九份 Jiufen Old Street which we blogged here.

Houtong (猴硐), located in Rueifang District, is a mountain village in eastern New Taipei City. It was originally called Hou Dong (猴洞) because of a cave in the area that was once inhabited by a group of wild monkeys. The whole Houtong area is surrounded by mountains and located by the upstream portion of the Keelung River. A visit here will reveal a perfect scene seemingly handcrafted for the enjoyment of both photographers and landscape artists.

If you are not a lover for carbonated beverages, I’m very sure your taste buds will be satisfied when you taste Mogu Mogu fruit juices. It is a healthy alternative to the former and hey, Mogu Mogu 320ml drink also comes with Nata De Coco that gives you a real sensation of fruit juice with a smooth blending of Nata De Coco.

First produced in 2003, Mogu Mogu juices has warmed the hearts of people in many parts of the world, notably Hong Kong, Singapore, China, Japan, Middle East, Europe and United States. All thanks to Meng Chong foodstuffs Pte Ltd, Mogu Mogu’s Flavoured drink is available over here in Singapore!

Do you know the word Mogu Mogu is a Japanese term, meaning “to chew”? Huh, no wonder the drink is fully packed with nata de coco bits. Every cube of Nata De Coco is produced by the fermentation of pure coconut water, giving it a distinctive taste and chewy texture. We were a tad overwhelmed when we crossed path with Mogu Mogu, thinking which flavour to try first!

Many Flavours, One Great Taste

Mogu Mogu fruit juices come in many fruity flavours. Whether you are a fan of grape, peach, coconut, mango, lychee, apple, yogurt or even the new pink guava, there will be a taste that appeals to you.

We thought Mogu Mogu fruit juices would make a perfect choice for special occasions. When you are organizing play dates for kids, birthday parties or celebrations, Mogu Mogu can fit nicely as the preferred choice of beverage 🙂

A big shout-out to owners of cafes, restaurants, supermarkets and such, stock up your supplies of Mogu Mogu fruit juices and see your customers coming back for more!
