Jiufen old street is one of the busiest street in Jiufen. The street and the house are built along the mountain slope, forming a vertical chessboard. Starting from the bottom are three transmeridional roads--Qingbian Road, Jishan Street and Shuqi Road. Most of the snack shops are located in Jishan Street. Shuci Road, where most tea shops are located, is formed with hundreds of stone steps. Some shops sell snacks of traditional flavor, including taro and sweet potato, rice cake with taro, taro ball and more. For visitors who dislike the commercialized old street or the noise, a tea shop can be a great choice. A cup of Chinese tea and the nice view over Jiufen will help you forget all the troubles in reality.
