I visited Danshuei twice. Short MRT ride away from central Taipei. The town offers a short historical stroll along Fisherman's Wharf and your stereotypical touristy shops. During the winter, the town can be very cold and windy due to it's location near the Ocean. The highlight of Danshuei is visiting Fort Santo Domingo, the old Spanish and Dutch trading fort/consulate... More

North terminal station on the red MRT line. Old street north of MRT station has plenty of food & souvenirs. Take a boat across for some seafood restaurants at "Bali" Or take a bus to the Fisherman's Wharf. Nice bridge & marina at this windy place.

Was mostly at the waterfront within walking distance from MRT station. Clean and lined with shops and stalls selling souvenirs and foodstuff. Becomes more romantic during dusk with sun setting and colourful lights lined the walkway.

Danshui is a long subway ride from Taipei city. It is the last stop on the red Taipei metro line. My family visited on a weekday late morning and enjoyed a leisurely stroll through the 淡水老街。if you arrive before 1pm, you can catch the local fresh market scene that can be found in a side lane. This is where the... More

Outstanding sunset view as the Tamsui Old Street is net to the water. There is also a large grassy area where one can sit down and relax. We were there in the weekend and it was crowded and there many people shopping, eating and relaxing by the grass area. Access to Tamsui is via the Metro, about 40 mins from... More

My first time there and I thought it was okay. The jam both ways are bad and I would suggest Mrt. Mostly street foods, cafes, arcade games and some souvenir shops. Did not manage to buy anything except the famous old ginger tea that is available everywhere else. They said the sunset is beautiful on clear evenings, it was cloudy... More

This town which is near the Danshui MRT station is known for the Danshuei fish snack. There are a lot of shops selling fried squid(nice and cheap), carnival style games, drinks and even a starbucks coffee joint here. Can get very crowded during weekends and would suggest you come here during weekdays if possible.

It's a must place to go. Sunday night is the most atmospheric timel to go. It's famous for the sunset, it is a treat to see. It was my first experience of a night market, I'm fussy about food, that's just me, every time I go to Taiwan, Dan Shui is a place I want to go back to. Enjoy... More

Located right at the end of the train line, this is a great place to visit and walk with your family. The stores are nice here, and the market is considerably cheaper than the ones in Taipei (at least in my experience). Some nice restaurants in the area as well. Definately worth the visit out here, especially if you're lugging... More
