  • Memory of a past that saw this town as a coal mining centre. The mining stopped in 1987. And also the last train stop.

  • That is the end point of the pingsi line shortcut from Taipei City in a bus. Along the Valley of old coal-mining town, includes many shops around the station. In addition, expands the town had coal mines still existed on the other side of the Valley of. It's probably best avoided, but the town itself is very crowded holiday day, so its time.
