A charming village that’s most commonly known for its sky lanterns, Shifen is a place that connects the Japanese era of Taiwan with the present because of its quaint streets and houses. Aside from releasing sky lanterns, you can also explore the alleys and railroads, which are lined with local souvenir shops and stalls for distinctly Taiwanese xiaochi street food. Not far from the train station, the Shifen Waterfall and the Cheng-An Temple will be a good spot for a quiet trek.
