Come experience the railway in Pingxi! The 12.9-kilometer line starts from Sandiaoling Station and ends at Jingtong. Lingjiao Station has a quaint arc-shaped platform, and the wooden Jingtong Station makes passengers feel as if they returned to the Japanese colonial period. The nostalgic mood continues on the old street, where there is more Japanese architecture and traditional snacks. Before leaving, you can write your wishes on a sky lantern, and let the blessings fly to the sky.
