How to get to JiuFen 九份 (Taiwan -Taipei)?

How to get to JiuFen (九份)?

1.   Take the train to Ruifang Station from Taipei Main Station*.
*You can refer to my other post on how to get from Taipei Main Station to Ruifang Station. 

2.   Exit from Ruifang Station, cross the street to the bus stop next to the Wellcome Supermarket as show in Image 2.1 below. Images 2.2 and 2.3 show the street view of the bus stop.

3.   Take buses 788/ 825/827/F802.

4.   When to alight: The bus stop is after the sharp bend as shown in image 4.1 below. Look out for the pavilion on your right as shown in images 4.2 and 4.3. When you alight you should see the 7-Eleven as shown in image 4.4. The duration of the bus ride is about 15 minutes. The good thing is, there will be a lot of people alighting at the bus stop so you won’t miss the stop. If there’re not a lot of people on the bus, you can always ask the bus driver when to alight if you are worried. Taiwanese are very friendly!

  1. Hi there, I chanced upon your nice blog while researching on Jiufen. Can I ask when did you go there? How was the weather? The train that you took was it express/ordinary?

    Thank you.

    Regards,
    Ben

  2. Hi Ben,

    Thanks for visiting!

    I did not go Jiufen during my recent trip because it was quite late by the time I left Shifen that day. I went in early January, and the weather wasn't really good. Drizzling throughout, and the day ends rather early at 5pm because it's winter.

    Previously I went Jiufen in early march, the weather was much better. I guess march and april the weather would be great!

    The train I took from Taipei main station to RuiFang Station was a ordinary train. Not sure whether there's any express train.

    Hope this helps!

    All the best! :)
