Experience Taiwan's wonders off the beaten track with a journey along Ping Hsi Branch Railway Line. Originally built in 1921 for transporting coal, the single-track line stretches 12.9 km (8 mi) from Ruifeng station to Shi Fen station, passing scenic villages and farmland along the way. Explore the checkpoints known for traditional paper sky-lanterns, which, according to legend, used to alert locals about bandit raids. When you reach Shi Fen station, stop in the shops on both sides of the track and walk to the picturesque waterfall less than 2 km (1.2 mi) away. An all-day pass allows you to get on and off the train whenever you wish.

  • It's better to stay here than to go to spun. It's a great place to stay.

  • People who need to go well gather on this train. Cat Village: I got on it from a car, but it was very crowded. It was very crowded and the air conditioner was very effective and it was cold like a refrigerator. Taiwan Railway is a little cool about the Yingguang and Self-Strength, but for some reason the trains that stop at each station are very cold. I think that the person who is cold catches a cold if it becomes the one to wear one piece.
