      Shifen Old Street and Jingan Bridge in the periphery of the station are ideal places for many visitors to take photos with. Since Shifen Waterfall is right next to the railroad, there is a waterfall observation bridge by the railroad, giving an alternative experience of observing the trains while standing on the bridge. Shifen Waterfall is a curtain waterfall similar to Niagara Falls in North America, thus it is also honored as the Niagara Falls of Taiwan. The main characteristic of this place is the connection between the old street and the railroad, where one may experience the interesting feeling of “trains passing by your front door”, as well as the fun of window-shopping next to the railroad itself. The old street commercial circle is fairly boisterous and diverse; one may even purchase a sky lantern to write down wishes and prayers for oneself and for family and friends; store owners filled with human touch not only provide friendly guidance, but will even teach you how to take beautiful photos of the sky lantern!
