The second tour was a freestyle visit to JiuFen Old Street(九份老街). In the afternoon, students went on with gold mining experience at the Goldore Musuem(九份黃金博物館) learning the important economic activity of JiuFen in the olden days. Mentioned by a sophomore, Carlos from Hong Kong, “We’re not so lucky with the rain today, but it’s really amazing to see how the gold sands was being mined step-by-step in front of my eyes!”.
