Where can I go?

Jinshi is in the northeast of Zhuqi Township, the terrain moderate to steep slopes, and on a main road between Zhuqi and Ruili. Jinshi produces peaches, plums, tea, bamboo, longan and Mandarin oranges.

Jinshi was settled more than 300 years ago. Access to the outside was mainly provided by limestone trails and today the ancient trails are Jinshishan Ancient Trail, the ancient trail between Jinshiliao and Guanyin Waterfall, the ancient trail between Shuikeng and Pipatou and the one between Shuikeng and Jiaoliping. Lacking a major scenic spot, the natural scenery remains in pristine condition. The scenery is either agricultural, namely bamboo forest and tea plantations, or mountains.

Jinshui is on Chia County Road 166 which goes to Ruili, commonly called Ruishui Highway. The elevation ranges from 100 to 1200 meters and afternoon fog is common, the waterfall shrouded by mist creating a stunning scene. There is also a bird’s eye view of Chiayi’s night scene.
