Taiwan Travel: Shifen Train Station, Pingxi District

The train has arrived at Shifen. If you are not sure where the train is stopping, makes sure to go out from the train once you see the Chinese characters of Shifen (十分).

Shifen Train Station Taiwan

Shifen is administratively part of Pingxi District, New Taipei City. The train that we rode is part of the Pinxi Branch Rail Line which extends from Sandiaoling to Jingtong stations. The view from the train can be pretty scenic at some sections.

The main attraction in Shifen is Shifen Waterfall (十分瀑布/ Shífēn pùbù), which is also known as Taiwan's Niagara Falls. If you do not know where the waterfall is, there is a guide map alongside the rail track. Else, you can just follow other tourists because most of them will definitely go there. =P

There are so many interesting things to see at the stalls located at the right and left side of the rail track. Like the bamboo rolls. Wishes and hopes are written on these bamboo rolls. Apparently these are written by visitors and visitors can just hang these in various places of the town.

The fried ice cream stall immediately attracts our attention. Hahaha. What a hungry monster, we are.

The fried ice cream looks like a Japanese croquette in a way.
