“Not that interesting...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2012 via mobile

Maybe it's my personal preference for scenery instead of culture/history...but I wouldn't recommend a visit unless it's raining and you have no where else to go.

“A Gold Mine Once Upon A time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2012

Worth a visit, it goes back to Japanese occupation more than one
hundred years ago, some living house quarter still around, with a pay fee, one can walk into a real cave, to feel the experience of miners, some gold process machinery on display, the area is very big with many sections of history site, a whole day can easily spend, if one wishes to walk for hours.

“nice walking tour in the mountain area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2012

enjoyed the walking toward the museum. it is a good retreat to stay one a night in Jioufen and walk around in the peaceful morning. The walk toward the museum is very relaxing and no traffic. The museum itself is ok but trail to the old Japanese style temple in the museum is worth trying, only 10 mins walking and you will have magnificent view of the valley.
