Went there last year just to see the so-called lover's bridge…Don't expect too much like we did. Well, if you are into photo op, this is ok but you can skip it if you are spending just a few days in Taiwan.

Haven't been there for years, and the place is getting more and more commercial. Still a good place to go to spend an afternoon, where you can find all the street food and a nice waterfront.

This area isn't too far by train from Taipei. We stayed in the Ximengding area and I think from that station it took roughly an hour or so to get to Tamsui station. Not far from the train station there is a sort of parking lot area with some railway containers (I think that's what they were) with different kinds... More

I visit Taipei every year and I never fail to visit Danshui at least once during each trip. It gets a bit crowded during weekends, but it doesn't seem to matter. It's so peaceful and relaxing, really worth visiting if you wanna make a quick getaway from the city center. The Danshui Old Street isn't so long, but it's worth... More

Great sunset and a lovely place to relax, listening to the singing of local artist and strolling the unique shops selling handmade goods or just have a cup of coffee by the riverfront.

This is a lovely little village of shops and restaurants on the water. There is a great walking park that looks across the bay and in the evening or night time the sparkling lights are very romantic. The prices are high in restaurants and shops since this is a resort community. Street vendors and musicians abound. Take time to explore... More

Danshuei is also a name of MRT terminal station's name. You can get there by MRT, I think it is the red color line. Be aware some schedule of the trains on that line ends service before Danshuei station, so listen to the broadcast or check carefully. But don't worry too much there will be staff to assist. There are... More

- Numerous food stall: Good local food, cheap price, you better go there empty-stomached! - The bitter-melon juice with honey is a must-try! Sounds healthy, after eating those deep-fry food. - Street performers and drawers - N$1,000 for a picture of me, my girlfriend and our bunny at home. High standards. Will come back.

I love Danshuei! Take a stroll down the old street and feel the breeze as you walk.. take a ferry to the Fisherman Wharf where you can see the beautiful sunset. Its definitely worth the trip!
