If you're coming to Taiwan
, you'd better like snacks. Anywhere that's described as an "old street" is basically a feast on legs - and Jiufen is the perfect example. Up in the mountains, there are great views down to the harbour. The bus stops at one end of the 'old street' - get out, stroll along and eat your fill, then stop for tea and gaze at the view - or, if it's wet, watch the mist rolling up the mountain.
