Landmark · Tourist Spot
Stroll, shop, and take photos of the famous lanterns at Shifen Old Street, one of the most popular stops along the Pingxi railroad line. This picturesque attraction has a number of souvenir shops and eateries to entertain you during your visit. Though it was initially built to transport coal, this train stop and historical site is now known for its sky lanterns. Here you may be inspired to paint a wish and then release your lantern into the air with hopes that the wish will come true. There are also a number of other attractions within walking distance, including a well-known waterfall. Plan my day in New Taipei using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.
