First time in Taiwan? How's first impression? Looking forward to seeing your pictures.

Here is one idea for a day trip - Jinguashi

Jinguashi - small town near more famous Jiufen (although IMO more interesting), about an hour from Taipei by car. During Japanese times it used to be a mining town (gold, copper), during the war there was a concentration camp for US and British soldiers there (they worked in mines around), now it is just a tourist town worth to spend a day (or two if Jiufen included)

Jilong (Keelung) Island


small fishing village


ruins of Shuinandong smelter, 13 story structure on the side of the hill, gives idea how large the mining industry was here during Japanese; Jilong (Keelung) mountain behind






Flue pipes - these were used to take fumes away from the copper refinery to where there were no residents in the hills above. The flues are about two meters high and one and a half meters wide. They were abandoned when Taiwan Metals Mining Corp. closed down. Inside the flue a large quantity of secondary minerals have accumulated making to unsafe to enter. It is claimed they are the longest flues in the world. They are imposing and are one of the unique sights of Jinguashi (info from Wikipedia).










Golden Waterfall - color is from minerals that are carried by the water
