Love is about being a part of each other’s life, and so is traveling.
Sea to Sky – Northeast Coast and Shifen (十分)
Take a trip up to Taiwan’s northeastern coast and take in all the beauty and majesty that your high school geology textbooks talked about in person.The town of Pingxi is well-known for its appearance in the romantic movie “You are the Apple of My Eye” <那些年，我們一起追的女孩>, sky lanterns, and Taiwan’s Niagara Falls.
Thanks to the movie, many Taiwanese people come to Pingxi to reminisce about their good old times. For the visitors from abroad, the town is extra special with its cozy atmosphere and early culture of Taiwan.
Nature’s Classroom – Bitou Cape Trail & Nanya the Rocky Shore
Taiwan’s Northeast coastline is full of beautiful rocky shores, shallow sandy beaches with algae, sea cucumbers, seashells, hermit crabs, and more coastal wildlife than you can shake a stick at. Rock climbing and fishing are two extremely popular activities to undertake on Taiwan’s Northeast coastline, and our tours of the coast cater specifically to those outdoor adventure loving types whose idea of a great day involved both rock climbing and photographing beautiful seascapes.
Back to the Old Times – Pingxi Sub Railway
The Pingxi Railway was originally built to transport coal. Now it is used for tourists to experience the life that Pingxi’s miners previously led. Enjoy a relaxing ride back through history, and soak up the early culture of Taiwan clearly on display here.
Let’s Make a Wish – Sky Lantern
Make a wish, write it on the lantern and let it fly. The sky lantern festival has long been used for people to pray for their wishes. During the Lantern Festival, around February and March each year, lanterns cover the entire sky of Pingxi. If you’re an artist, writer, or photographer, we highly recommend you see this festival for yourself.
Taiwanese Niagara Falls – Shifen Waterfalls
Shifen has the best waterfall in Northern Taiwan, sometimes referred to as “Taiwanese Niagara Falls”. Want to decide whether or not the name is justified for yourself? Come on down to Pingxi and check it out for yourself!
