May 20, 2022 Darleen Reid

Visiting Taipei? Don't limit your sightseeing to the city center. Also known as New Taipei City, Xinbei covers more than 2000 square kilometers of Taiwan, including coastlines, hot springs, temples, historic landmarks and more. At Yeliu Coast, strange and fascinating rock formations rise from the rocky coastline. The Lin Ben-Yuan Family Abode and Garden is a tranquil place featuring graceful Chinese landscaping.

Yinhe Cave

Reviewed By Ericaboo - Calgary, Canada

This was not an easy feat for me. This took me a long long time to get here. My hotel was smack-dab in the middle of downtown Taipei. I am also not a hiker, and in the extreme heat and humidity it took a toll. From my hotel it took me two train rides, a 30 minute gondola ride, a 40 minute walk to get to the hiking trail and once at the hiking trail it took me another 25-30 minutes all the way up the steep steps to make it to the top. Needless to say I was drenched in my own sweat, but man oh man what a sight. Make sure to take about 3-4 bottles of water and some food to eat, also an umbrella for the sun and lots of bug spray, you WILL get eaten alive. I finally made it to the Yinhe Waterfall cave. It was suffice to say..amazingly beautiful. I used google maps all the way here for which trains to take and to stay on trail to the cave. I don't recommend tourists coming here when it is severely hot out as I felt like I was going to pass out but its definitely doable - just be careful and pack accordingly. A MUST SEE! I won't ever forget my time here.

Yin Yang Sea

Reviewed By chrrchr - Sitiawan, Malaysia

Our local driver stopped at a bus stop for us to admire the distinct bicolour sea. The gold water is contained with minerals which flowed from the nearby Golden Waterfall, another interesting sight to visit. You'll spend no more than 15 minutes here
