Take a step back in time with a full day tour of Taiwan’s northern villages renowned for their charm, history, and culture: Jinguashi, Jiufen, and Pingxi. Jinguashi is a quaint, coastal town famous for its former gold mines. Tour the Thirteen Ruins, an abandoned refinery high up in the mountains overlooking the gold and blue Yin Yang Sea of Ruifang. The coastal town of Jiufen is said to be the inspiration for the Miyazaki classic Spirited Away, so expect to be similarly enchanted as we wander the narrow cobblestone streets and the Japanese-style Amei Teahouse. Finally, cast your wishes into the heavens with the help of lanterns in Shifen, Pingxi, Taiwan’s lantern festival capital. Just a stone’s throw away from bustling Taipei, this day tour will allow you to bask in the different old world atmospheres of three beautiful towns, take in astounding scenery and learn about Taiwan's cultural heritage. **Please note: This tour requires a reasonable degree of physical fitness**
