Known for its tourist attractions such as Yehliu Geopark (野柳地質公園) and Jiufen Old Street (九份老街), New Taipei City boasts of spectacular coastlines and mountains.
However, if you’re looking to avoid large crowds, here are four locations less known, yet still magnificent travel destinations that you shouldn’t miss when you go to New Taipei City!
飛碟屋遺址｜The Abandoned UFO Houses
Shaped as flying saucers, these bizarre UFO houses were constructed in 1978 and were originally planned to be a high-end vacation resort. However, the project was forced to a halt due to investment losses during the oil crisis.
Following its abandonment, rumors began to spread that the place was haunted after several fatal car accidents and suicides occurred in the area.
Dilapidated, the park exudes of a sense of mystery and antiquity. The vintage architecture attracts visitors far and wide, where many come to take gorgeous #Instaworthy photos to post on social media platforms.
