  • The day pass allows you to hop on and hop off at any of the towns on the Pingxi Line (the name of the railway branch line that serves Shifen), which includes many more towns than just Shifen
  • Each town on the Pingxi Line has its own unique character, like Houtong, which has a cat village
  • The 1 day pass costs only 80 TWD, which less than $3 US
  • You can buy the pass at the Ruifang Railway Station, which is the train station you'll need to get to from Taipei to transfer to Shifen
