Yehliu Geopark

One of the premier destinations in northern Taiwan, Yehliu Geopark is home to a number of unique geological formations including the iconic "Queen's Head", and is located along a cape stretching out from the town of Wanli.


A beautiful coastal mining town, Jinguashi (along with Jiufen) is one of Northern Taiwan's best destinations. The Gold Museum is a fascinating look into Taiwan's gold mining history, and is located in Jinguashi. The Golden Waterfall is located in Jinguashi.


Feel spirited away in this decommissioned gold mining mountain town, originally built by the Japanese and now a maze of lanes and alleyways with rich history and culture.

The Golden Waterfall

The Golden Waterfall is a really cool waterfall near the popular tourist village Jiufen and the Gold Ecological Park. The waterfall isn't very big, but it is quite attractive ecologically speaking and if you follow the river downstream it ultimately runs off into the ocean in an area popularly known as the Yin-Yang Sea.

Yin Yang Sea

Located beside the northern coastal road in the Gold Ecological Park region is Yin Yang Sea, a curiously colored patch of water. The complementary blue and yellow coloring of this bay brings to mind the ancient Chinese principle of yin and yang, the natural concept of duality. Just as with the dichotomy of light and dark, or cold and hot, Yin Yang Sea expresses a natural balance of two sides of a mutual whole. This awe-inspiring scene provides a perfect opportunity to pause and contemplate what other contrary forces in nature are actually interconnected concepts. Remove assumptions, take a step back, and open your mind to the beauty of nature.
