Originally a mining town, Chiufen is a like a little gem on a hill. Thanks to its location, you get a beautiful view of the surroundings, with a small glimpse of the sea in the far horizon. The only thing we felt was a shame was that the place has become a little bit too commercialized. It had to survive somehow, after the mining industry fell back, so it is understandable that tourism was their best option. But aside from that, the little has a bit of charm to it.

You can also shop or grab a sandwich, there are several shops and bars to find, and is a place where you can spend some real god time.
