The area
Address
Neighborhood: Pingxi District
The formerly prosperous mining industry of Pingxi District has presently bid its time of black gold farewell, washing off its glories and returning to simplicity, it attracts travelers to stay by picking up a downshifting pace. If you like the mountains and water, come seek out the secluded Wanggu Waterfall and the majestic Shifen Waterfall; if you are a railroad scene enthusiast, there is no harm in taking the train along the Pingxi rail branch line and making random stops in the unique surrounding stations. Quaint Jingtong Station and Serene Wanggu Station calm the mind for relaxation. Shifen Station and Shifen Old Street with its distinct scene of “a train passing through the front doors” and nostalgic old street makes every corner worthy of savoring. You must experience releasing sky lanterns when visiting Pingxi. Write down your wishes and let the sky lantern bring them slowly to the sky. There is also the one and only “Sky Lantern Police Station”, not only with daily dazzling light shows but also offering customized “Police Wishing Sky Lantern” so tourists can hand draw images or writings and display them on LED sky lanterns.

It is the last stop of Pingxi line. The station building is a wooden house which was built during Japanese governing time. Many tourists go to Shifen, and not necessarily go to Jingtong. But just to see this station, it is worth visiting here.

The last station on the Pingxi Historic Railway Branch. The small wooden station is the perfect greeting to Jing Tong upon arriving. It is situated right in the heart of Old Street and across from several ruins of former coal mining structures. Be sure to check out the Railway Story House across the street which is home to old photos, railway paraphernalia and interesting statues and post boxes.

This historic site is just incredible. The shops along the rail track always filled with tourists and visitors. The most amazing sight is visitors would put up lanterns (Tian Deng) in the day time to send their wishes to heaven. Feel the local culture, this is the place you don't want to miss.
