      Anchor point
      Jingtong Station, an 80-year-old wooden station building, is decayed but has retained its elegant and ancient charm, attracting many tourists to take pictures. At the small quaint pavilion next to the station, visitors can buy bamboo tubes in the railway story hall next to them, write their wishes on the bamboo tubes and hang them in the pavilion.

      At the Jingtong Railway Story Hall next to the station, you could buy a wooden postcard, write blessings or memories on it, and drop it in the red retro mailbox to be sent to your home, a nice reminder of a wonderful trip. Jingtong Old Street, next to Jingtong Station, is only 100 meters away from the railway. The slate and floor tiles tell the history of the mining industry. There is a nostalgic miners’ canteen, railway souvenir shop, Yang Family’s best-selling chicken rolls, which make it an interesting area for visitors.
      Xinzhuang Temple Street One-Day Trip
      With its history of more than 300 years, Xinzhuang Old Street is a microcosm of Taiwan's contemporary history. Behind the bustling tourist night market, there are so many historic temples, quaint old shops, and alleys with historical traces hidden in them.Xinzhuang Dizang Temple, an important religious center filled with strong incense, was founded in the Qing Dynasty, so the temple has been around for a long time. It has not only held annual religious events in Xinzhuang but has also served as an important meeting point for all Xinzhuang people, where youth make new memories and the elderly look back at shared memories.From Zhongzheng Road it is about eight-minute minute walk to Xiangrenhe Bell and Drum Factory. With a history of more than half a century, this factory’s products are praised for their quality. Besides exhibiting various drums from other countries in the museum, the factory also displays the rare drum-making process, allowing visitors to experience the master's dedication to this traditional craft.You may also pay visits to Guangfu Temple, Fude Temple, Wenchang Temple, Ciyou Temple, Chaojiang Temple and other shrines and temples along the way. The name of Mishixiang stems from the dockworkers carrying bags of rice. The last step is the iron forging workshop, an old shop inside the Xinzhuang Temple Street, where knives are made the traditional way to this day. The store will also teach customers the correct way to use and maintain them!
