Taipei Day 2 - 金瓜石 / 新北市立黃金博物館 (Gold Museum) / Golden Waterfall (黃金瀑布)


After Jiufen, the taxi driver brought us to the Gold Museum.

This is the Crown Prince Chalet.
"The Crown Prince Chalet is a residence built in 1922 for the proposed visit of Crown Prince Hirohito to the area (a visit that never materialized). Decades later it was used by Chiang Kai-shek as lodging in the area." - Extract from Wikipedia
