With its sleepy mountainside location and old-style architecture, the town of Jiufen seems to recall a different time. No wonder it's frequently associated with a Hayao Miyazaki animated film. Established as a gold mining town, Jiufen charms with its lantern-thronged alleys lined by sumptuous food stalls, traditional tea houses and stores selling handicrafts, souvenirs and delightful knickknacks.
