2nd time been to Danshuei area. Got there around 1030 and most of the shops weren't opened. Nice stroll along the "Old Street" and managed to got plenty of photo along the way w/o the crowds. I found the prices for street food slightly higher than those in the Taipei city area. Worth a visit if you are in the... More

It was a Saturday morning and surprisingly most stalls are not fully opened. Nothing spectacular. We visited en route to Yilan.

I was hesitant to go to this "fishing village" but was pleasantly surprised once I got there. The street right off the water is filled with restaurants and fun little kiosks (some stuff here is cheaper than kiosks next to water). But mostly everyone gravitates towards the water and there's tons of restaurants, snacks, etc. there. Lots of families and... More

The MRT takes you right to Tamsui. Spend an afternoon there, just walking around, discovering the sights, food, history. We were there on a Monday and it was pleasantly quiet. We had lunch at Hei Dian, a small restaurant recommended by a local. It is on the left just before you reach the old street. The signature dish is the... More

This is worth a day walk if you have sufficient time in Taipei. The street has lots of food stalls, cafes, shops. You can also choose to relax by the wharf. I was glad that we decided to roam around on Sun and I found a souvenir shop selling all types of crystals miniature. I don't have to go all... More

If you have been to any city or town built by a bay with a boardwalk and with endless food outlets, then you have been to Danshuei! I wouldn't waste my time going here at all, unless you want to get out of the hustle and bustle of Taipei. It's just a long boardwalk by the water, with lots of... More

We really enjoyed Danshuei. We stared in Bali and took the ferry over we checked out a few places, churches, restaurants etc. then we jumped back on the ferry to head to the warf. That was a lot of fun. It was a bit windy when we went but still beautiful. The night market was great. So many new and... More

After endless walks through Taipei, went to spend the late afternoon in Danshui. The MRT is already by the sea, so you are already by the shore where all the shops and food stands are. It was very nice at sunset. Had a quiet walk along the conriche, saw a few food spots, typical souvenir shops. The walk to the... More

We visited Danshui Old Street in the late afternoon. Lots to eat but honestly, nothing really fantastic. We were too stuffed by the time we reached the shops selling ' Ah Gei' so we did not try that. We spent an hour or so just sitting by the river and catching the sunset. The esplanade was not crowded, so we... More
