Follow this route should be quite safe

Thanks.

I saw the news saying that there is a new bus, Bus 965 to Jiufen but not sure if it will take longer duration.

Time-saving new express bus route from New Taipeiís Banqiao to Jiufen and Jinguashi begins operation Sep 10

新崛江 = 高雄的西门町 (商圈),六合夜市 = 高雄的士林(最夯的夜市)

平民美食 = 瑞丰夜市 (open-air grid-space food stalls)

Other shopping malls = 三多商圈 (Sogo, 新光三越, FE21 Mega, etc)
Mall with big roof top Ferris wheel = Dream Mall (梦世代)
Thanks bro! My first time going to Kaohsiung after so many years of going Taiwan lol.

Time-saving new express bus route from New Taipei’s Banqiao to Jiufen and Jinguashi begins operation Sep 10

" The agency said traditionally people traveling from Banqiao to the Jiufen area have to take a train or take a bus at MRT Zhongxiao Fuxing Station to Ruifang Railway Station and then transfer to a bus for Jiufen or Jinguashi and that such a single trip takes about two hours. With Bus 965, a single trip takes only about 80 minutes and no transfer is necessary, saving 30 - 40 minutes, the agency added."

I think this bus 965 route is good, you don't have to take mrt - train - bus, save a lot of transfer time.
If you are going shifen first, there is another bus going straight from muzha mrt to shifen.

I agree with Andrew. Didn't use them but based on what I read, u are better off on your own.

KKday tour/transport review very bad, choose others.

I saw this same pic pasted at the hotel I stayed when I went last month too. Not sure if this is something new... Because most of the times I rely on google maps for direction and which bus or mrt to take

If I intend to skip Shifen, Bus 965 will be faster to reach Jiufen Old Street?
