Meet a driver at your hotel in Taipei for the trip toward the Yin Yang Sea, on Taiwan’s northern coast, where you’ll see dramatically two-toned water and the nearby Golden Waterfall. Continue to the historic town of Jiufen, the set for the award-winning movie, Spirited Away, and enjoy some free time to purchase lunch at a local restaurant and visit one of the town’s atmospheric teahouses.

Following your time in Jiufen, head to Pingxi and browse the souvenir shops that line Shifen Old Street. Pingxi is the site of the annual Sky Lantern Festival, and you’ll have the chance to join in the tradition by writing your wishes on a lantern, lighting a candle at its base, and watching it drift away over the village. After launching your sky lantern, begin the scenic journey back to Taipei, where this tour concludes.
