From afar, Bitou Cape looks like the nose of a kitten leaning by the sea. The total area of the cape is about 4 to 5 km2, whose tall abrasion caves and platforms and other eroded landforms are clearly in sight on the cape's hanging cliff. With an elevation of about 120m, the famous Bitou Cape Lighthouse is at the end of the trial along which there are endless scenes from the ocean and eroded landforms. Standing in the lighthouse, waves from the East China Sea and the Pacific are meeting and flapping right in front of you.

The northernmost tourist site in the scenic area, Nanya is noted for its fantastic rock formations and sea-eroded coral shore. The entire coastline here is a veritable sculpture garden that illustrates, in stone, the incomparable artistry of weathering and wave action. The patterned stone topography of Nanya, unique in Taiwan, was formed through the weathering of the sandstone that lines the shore. The oxidation of iron ore within the striations of the stone has given it a beautiful striped pattern.

It is said that long time ago there were only nine families in Jioufen. Before the roads on land were built, all materials were transported via ships. Thus a habit was formed that nine pieces of same object were purchased at one time for reservation. Hence, the place was called Jioufen. Jioufen used to the center of gold mining. It is located within the hills in northeast of Taiwan. The village is next to the mountain and facing the sea. In 1890, someone struck gold near Jioufen. The poor village with only nine families soon attracted prospectors of 4,000 families. The village once was gold city of Asia and called little Shanghai or little Hong Kong. However, with the decline of gold mining activities, Jioufen fades. Later, several movies chose to shoot here and the movies won international acknowledgement. For example, the film the Sad City has won first prize in Venice Film Festival and awakened people's memory of Jioufen. It seems that the prosperous old streets, buildings, mines and the glamorous gold digging days are flashing before our eyes. The place is whispering its golden past. Now, there are many unique teahouses in Jioufen. These teahouses are best stops during visit to this mountain village. Also, there is the beautiful ocean view of Keelung outer sea. The most prosperous shopping district is Jinshan Street. It goes through most of the village. There are many visitors on the street. Along the street there are shops vending the most famous country snack of Geo Fan, yam dish and various local dishes. There are some historical items well reserved. The trip to Jioufen is full of fun and delights. Jioufen has many accommodation places provided by local residents. If you were not in a hurry, you may want to pick a nice inn and stay for the starlight and fishing lights at night.
