說明 Introduction

About an hour from Taipei on the Northern coast of Taiwan sits a landscape that looks like if it belongs to another planet ! 

This is Yehliu Geopark made up of geological formations that jut out of the stony shoreline in shapes resembling faces, mushrooms, ice cream cones and the most popular one called "Queen’s Head" 

Then the tour will continue to Nanya Rocks. 


The cool thing about Nanya is that the large rocks which were formed over thousands of years of weathering and erosion stick out in the sky looking like cones. 
There are also other rocks which have weird looking jokes in them making them look like moon rocks. If you climb on the larger rocks and go out to the edge you are able to see the coral reef in the crystal clear water below. 
There are also a multitude of crabs, sea cockroaches and other marine life all over the rocks.

The the 3rd and last stop before driving back to Taipei is Jiufen originally built by the Japanese and now a maze of lanes and alleyways with rich history and culture.
The most prosperous and funny district is Jiufen Old Street. It goes through most of the village. Along the street there are shops vending the most famous country snack of Jiufen, yam dish and various local dishes. 
After some good food is time to go back to Taipei , a little bit tired maybe, but for sure with nice memories to bring at home !
