Taipei Shore Excursion : Sea to Sky - Northeast Coast and Shifen (十分) (Private Tour)
Enjoy a day outdoors at the rocky shores and sandy beaches of Taiwan’s gorgeous Northeast Coastline! This tour is a treat for those with a love for outdoor adventures and seascape photography. At the town of Pingxi our guests may be able to witness the famous Pingxi Lantern Festival!
Nature’s Classroom – Nanya the Rocky Shore
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 – Visit a Railway Old Town
Set by Shifen Railway Station, Shifen Old Street is filled with sky lantern and souvenir shops on both sides of the railway. Although Shifen Old Street is now a popular slight, the old street still keeps its nostalgic, relaxing ambiance, where local residents sometimes sit in front of their houses chatting.
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!
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.
