Description

Discover the rich culture and history of picturesque Pingxi and Shifen. Release your dreams and wishes into the heavens at the Pingxi Sky Lantern Festival, and then stroll Shifen's bustling Old Street before a short walk to “the Niagara Falls of Taiwan,” Shifen Waterfall.

After morning pick-up from pre-arranged pick up point, journey to the former mining town of Pingxi, the location of one of the most popular sky lantern festivals in the world. Discard the old and bring in the new by writing your wishes on a lantern and sending it aloft into the sunny skies. Listen as your guide shares the multiple stories of this ritual's origin.

Next, explore charming Shifen, a famous stop on the Pingxi Rail Line. Hear the rumble of a locomotive's approach as you shop the souvenir shops and food vendors of Old Street. Feel the whoosh as the train passes just feet away—no matter which side of the tracks you're shopping on. Then it's time to head out on a light trek to the waterfall. Feel the cool mist as you enjoy the stunning scenery.

Hike back to town and visit Shifen Station. Learn the fascinating history of the Pingxi Rail Line—from its coal-transporting days to when it became a world-renowned tourist railway. After, amble across the nearby Jingan Suspension Bridge. Originally made to transport coal, it is now one of the best preserved suspension pedestrian bridges in Taiwan. Enjoy scenic views of the town and mountain landscape before heading back to your bus for your return trip to Taipei.

No one picked me up at the destination, I was 45 minutes early. Had limited wifi. So I was having a heck of time trying to contact the company. I gave up and just went and did my own thing.

ガイドさんはとても明るい方です。 英語も日本語も上手で、私が参加した時は私達の他に英語圏の方々が一緒だったので、毎回言語を替えてガイドしてくれました。 十分にはランタンを飛ばすお店がいくつもありました。 お店(ツアーと提携しているお店かな?)に着くと、2人に対してランタンが1つ。1人2面ずつ願い事が書けます。 面のカラーを複数選びたい場合はプラス料金がかかります。(単色ならツアー料金込み。) スタッフさんが1組ずつ、ランタンを上げる前~ランタンが空に上がっていくまでの様子を写真に撮ってくれて感激! 上げた後の記念写真もポーズ指定で撮ってくれます(笑) 青空にランタンが映えて、とても良い思い出になりました!! 渓谷も迫力があって良かったです。高台からルートが分かれているのですが、体力のある方は遠いルートがオススメです。 更に滝に近づけるので、マイナスイオンを浴びることが出来ます。 値段以上のツアーだと思いました!
