Jiufen is an area in Ruifang District. It once flourished in the early days of the gold rush, and it declined after the mine was shut down. After the 1990s, the movie 《A City of Sadness》was set in Jiufen, where unique old buildings, the scenery of the slopes, as well as the local culture have been promoted through the film and caught people's attentions worldwide. Therefore, the tourism boom has brought business to the area, which has become a must visit tourist attraction in Taiwan.
