First head to Chiufen Village, passing through Chinkuashih Village on the way. Once both gold mining centers, the gold is long since gone, but these villages offer wonderful scenery and glimpses into the lifestyle of the past.
Chuifen Village, dates back to the Qing dynasty and once housed just nine families. Upon the discovery of gold, however, it became a prosperous mining town until the 1950s. Famous for its teahouses and spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean, it was also the setting for the movie A City of Sadness which has increased its fame. Wander its old commercial district, pedestrian streets and narrow alleys amidst the closely-packed houses which cling to the steep mountainside. If you wish, you can also sample some local specialties or pick up some handicrafts or souvenirs in the many small stores.
Then head to Pitou Cape (Bitou Cape, 鼻头角), for beautiful views of the sea-eroded cliffs and of the geological formations which characterize this area of Taiwan's coast.
Also visit the Nanya Rock Formations, a diverse array of natural sculptures created by wind and waves which appear on the coral shoreline.
Your final stop will be the Bay of Two Colors where you'll view a peculiar mixture of blue and yellow in the sea, the result of large amounts of mineral deposits in the waters.
