  • Spend a day full of fun while discovering hidden gems of Taiwan in the beautiful Pingxi District
  • Set free a lantern as you send prayers and wishes to the sky
  • Take a tour along Shifen's Old Street, Shifen Waterfall and Shifen Railway Station


Reach to the sky as you visit one of the world's famous sky lantern hub, the Pingxi District!

During your 5-hour trip, you will roam around some of Pingxi's best places. Explore around the Shifen Old Street where the Sky Lantern Festival takes place. The purpose of the festival is to promote the natural beauty of the district. For some, it is also a way to send out prayers and dreams to the heavenly God and wish for prosperity and peace for the nation and its citizens.

Continuing the tour, you will go to Shifen Special Scenic Area that is located in Shifenliao between Shiding, Ruifang and Shuangxi in northeastern Taiwan. Be amazed as you discover its terrain with surrounding rivers and waterfalls to it. This stop will then lead you to a nature trip at the majestic Shifen Waterfall. As the water plunges into the large, deep pool beneath, watch as it raises mists that often enshroud the falls. On sunny days, the mists paint dazzling rainbows in the blue skies, a sight that should never be missed.

Upon ending your tour, you will head to Shifen Railway Station or the Pingxi Branch Rail Line. This rail line extends 12.9 kilometers through Keelung River Valley from Sandiaoling to Jingtong stations, and Shifen is one of the stops along the line. What you will find special here is that the station is located in an area with beautiful waterfalls and streams.
