Pingxi and Shifen are great day trip destinations for a day out of the city. Start your tour at Shifen station and take a short walk to check out the Shifen waterfall. Then head over to Pingxi old street where you can write your wishes on the paper lantern and set it off right on the train tracks, don’t forget to snap a few pictures with your lantern before it flies away! The train track is built into a hill, where the train runs through the middle of the market with shops on both side, so remember to step off the tracks when the guards blow the whistle!
