PLEASE ASK PERMISSION BEFORE YOU RE POST MY PHOTOS ON TO YOUR BLOG. THERE ARE SOME BLOGGERS WHO DID NOT ASK MY PERMISSION AND REPOST MY PHOTOS WITHOUT THE COURTESY OF LINKING BACK TO MY BLOG. THIS IS LIKE STEALING. PEOPLE, I HAVE SPEND MUCH TIME TAKING PHOTOS AND DOING HOMEWORK ON MY TRAVELLING INFORMATION AND KINDLY SHARE THESE INFORMATION TO ANYONE INTERESTED IN THEM. IF NECESSARY I WILL POST SCREEN SHOT OF YOUR BLOG TO SHOW YOUR BAD MANNERS OF STEALING MY PHOTOS. THE MOST DISGUSTING THING THEY DID WAS TO SCREEN SHOT MY PHOTO AND CORP OFF MY BLOG TITLE AND REPOST IN THEIR BLOG. Jinguashi is famous for its gold and copper mining. Gold was discovered here in 1889, and the Ching Dynasty government set up a mining bureau between 1892 and 1893. However, in 1895, Taiwan was ceded to Japan, and Japan took over the mining operations. In 1905, copper was also discovered here and began to be extracted. You can read more from source.
The Gold Ecological Park served as an eco-museum, the aim being to combine community power and completely preserve the precious natural resources, mining relics, landscape, historical memories and cultural property of Jinguashi, attempting to give them a new life. You can view more from source.
The Crown Prince Chalet was built to welcome a visit by the Japanese crown prince. Although he did not actually stay here, it still bears his title
Very beautiful view of the mountain from the park.
The Park houses the Four Joined Japanese-Style Residences which were restored allowing visitors to take a glimpse into Taiwan’s Japanese colonial occupation period and mining industry of days past. The residences are converted into a museum, offering free guided tours in different languages, including English.
As it was a Monday, the tunnel museum was closed so we did not get the chance to view the tunnel.
So we made our way back to the exit and crossed over the road to take the bus back to Jiufen only one bus stop away. It costs us only NT15 per person for the bus ride.
