We arrived at Jiufen about 5.00 pm and it was very crowded. It has many shops selling street food and souvenirs. This place is good for fans of Spirited Away.

If you go at a time that is not very crowded then you can slowly explore the many interesting shops there and try the interesting food there. Only problem is when it is very crowded it is quite difficult to move around.

Like other markets they start early and I think with one hours travel from Taipei if u started at 8.30am you would still catch the famous food shops. Even if not open you can catch the scenery.

It is not advisable to bring an infant to Jiufen coz it is crowded with tourist. Stairs are steep too especially when u r carrying ur baby. No nursing station/room. There is no baby changing room on all their toilets
