The area
Neighborhood: Ruifan District
With its air of historical heritage, Shuijinjiu (ShueiNanDong, Jingguashi, Jiufen) used to be prosperous and glamorous due to mining. Although its magnificent semblance no longer exists, the peaceful and beautiful atmosphere has persisted. With a wave to the age of the gold rush, one can still see a glimpse of its glorious past through the Golden Waterfall. Gazing at the ShueiNanDong Remains of the 13 Levels, it is like a beautiful palace that was deserted, earning it the name of “Potala Palace of the Mountain Mines”. Probing forward to the mouth of the river is the considerably distinguished Yinyang Sea, with its half gold half bluish green spectacle inspiring countless imaginations of romance. Walking along the streets of the meandering old streets of Jiufen and tasting the various kinds of authentic eateries is the love of tourists. Stepping into the Golden Museum, one can glimpse the historical traces of the mining industry culture, reminiscing of past glories from its museum, living quarters, and shrine remains. The unassuming mountain city of Houtong used to be a mining village. With the call of cat lovers, volunteer groups were established to create a friendly environment for cats and turned Houtong into a cat village for cat lovers.

Freshly made pineapple cakes
Sep 2019 • Friends
Had a day trip to Jiufen and came across these freshly baked pibeapple cakes. Sampled the sweeter ones with melon and the more sour ones. Preferred the sour ones and bought 2 small boxes and 1 large. Enjoyed the cakes with chinese tea. Its less sweet and has texture in its filling. The pastry is less thick than some other famous cakes recomnended by friends.

Fresh fragrant pineapple cake!
Oct 2017 • Friends
This is by far some of the best pineapple cake I have ever had. They make it and package it there, bringing out some of THE best flavors you can get. The outer crumb is packed well and does not crumble too easily, and the pineapple filling is tart and not too sweet. The ladies there are very friendly and willing to share samples with you.
This shop is located close to the entrance/exit in Jiufen that's closest to the bus stops bound for Taipei, so if you're making a day trip to Jiufen I'd suggest taking a look on your way in but returning to buy it on the way out, so that you don't have too much to carry as you wander through the streets.
