AddressShifen Street, Pingxi Dist., New Taipei City, Taiwan 226
OpeningOpen all year round


The main feature here is the intersection of the old street built to connect with the railways. One can experience interesting “train passing by doorways” and the fun of shopping besides the railway tracks. It is also a well-known site where many Taiwanese singers take their MVs. One could stroll along the eateries or buy a “Shifen(very) happy” postcard and send to yourself in the future. If interested, you could also purchase a sky lantern and write down wishes to bless yourself with friends and families. The friendly shop owner will not only offer advice but also instruct how to take nice photos with the sky lanterns!

Tourists must follow traffic signs and not randomly cross the railroad tracks to avoid danger! The sky lantern shops here are in business weekdays and holidays. Write down your wishes on the sky lanterns and make your dreams come true!
