Cool historical museums, the Golden Waterfall, the ocean view where you can see where the gold-ish looking mine seepage water meets the blue ocean. Just a few bus stops beyond Jiufen, this area is rich in historical, cultural, and natural resources. Among these is the Museum of Gold which provides information on the gold mining industry and an insightful look into the life of a miner with a visit to the Benshan Fifth Tunnel (). This park happens to be the first museum park in Taiwan to be based on integrated ecological-museum concepts. Further owing to the eco-centered focus of the area, the Environment Education Center offers exhibits on the special environmental and geological characteristics of Jinguashi. Additionally, the Crown Prince Chalet () is also open to the public, providing visitors a chance to appreciate the elegance of a Japanese palace style building. And before you leave Jinguashi, remember to make a short stop at the Golden Waterfall ().
