Have you ever flown sky lanterns before? You will have an experience in writing messages on each side of lanterns before launching into the air. Travel from Taipei to Houtong Cat Village, Shifen Old Street, Jing Tong Station Railway Culture, Shifen Waterfall, and Suspension Bridge. Just a stone’s throw away from bustling Taipei, this tour will allow you to bask in the old-town atmosphere, take in beautiful scenery, and learn a thing or two about the area’s cultural heritage.

Start your day trip to Pingxi and Shifen with hotel pickup in Taipei, and settle into luxurious comfort aboard your vehicle.
First, you will arrive famous island-wide as the home for literally hundreds of cats; Houtong Cat Village is a must-see for cat lovers. On arrival in Shifen, follow your guide on foot down Shifen Old Street, the old street is unique in that it is built into a hill with a train track going overhead right through the middle with shops around selling local foods and gifts. You will be able to check out shops built during the 1930s and 1940s, as well as wooden houses built during the Japanese occupation era. It is originally built by the Japanese and is now a maze of lanes and alleyways with rich history and culture. The gold is gone, but these quaint old villages, build of closely-packed houses clinging to steep mountainsides, continue to offer enchanting scenery and fascinating glimpses into lifestyles of the past.
After visiting Shifen Old Street, you will visit Jing Tong Station Railway Culture and launch your sky lanterns. Then, you will see Shifen Waterfall which is so called "Little Niagara of Taiwan".
Finally, you will  transfer to your vehicle for the return drive to your hotel.
