Is Jioufen packed with tourists? Yes.
Is it still worth a visit? Yes, even multiple times yes to me!
For some reasons, I feel that the crowd essentially gives this little old town its vibrancy and liveliness where I did enjoyed wandering around the busy small alleys and eagerly, hungrily peeked at every colorful shops and counters.
But above and beyond that, I found Jioufen Teahouse, a completely serene spot amid all around noises where one can savor tea pots of finest quality with both mountainous ⛰ and oceanic 🌊 view. This is indeed a perfect place for contemplation, or simply one where people can share intimate, soulful talks.
Jioufen is a really tiny town and you should be able to find this tea house if you hang around long enough, in fact just within half a day from my experience. It is only a few steps tucked away in a side alley from the widely known A Mei tea house where everyone heads to so as to take picture. I’ll leave it to your wanderlust soul to track the remaining path if you’re looking for the same thing as what I’ve shared 😉
P/S: The oolong cheese cake in the first picture was on point. Don’t miss it if you’re somewhat a sweet tooth 😋
