A very nice place to explore as there is so much to see! Didn't know anything about Danshuei 淡水 so once I got off the MRT and headed for the information counter. The staff will give you a map and explain to you that there is an old street and you can view the sunset from a fisherman's pier/wharf 渔人码头.... More

Great scenery everywhere, especially when we come to the seashore. The buildings there are special too. It is also cyclist-friendly and less motorcycles. Good for travelers who like views and relaxing time.

Don't make the mistake of booking a tour through aviator or other. We did and were sadly disappointed - a waste of money for a quaint village that opens up in front of you as soon as you arrive. Take the red line all the way to the end. From the MRT main station it'll take about 40 minutes and... More

Went there during the weekend at lunch hour, it was packed with people at the waterfront and Old Street. Bought a few selected snacks at the Old Street and ate while strolling along the waterfront. There's street performers along the way too.

Take the red MTR line to the end(Tamsui). Journey takes about. 45 minutes on the MTR from Taipei main station.Exit the station , turn right and wait for bus 26. Fee is NT15 and takes 20-30 minutes. Taxi is faster ,10 minutes and cost about NT180. Fisherman's wharf is characterised by this huge white lover's bridge .Get off the bus... More

To get to Danshui you would have to take the red line to the last stop. It does take a while to get there if you're coming from Taipei main station area. We went on a Sunday and it was extremely crowded so I would suggest going on a weekday to beat the crowds. They have lots of food and... More

Arrived in Dansui around 7:30pm but shop already started to close and some already closed. It was 11 degrees and was rather cold along the coast. I love Dansui for its great space that lots of people can walk around without banging onto others.

I live part-time in Danshui and love to ride my bike along the river to the ocean east of Fisherman's wharf. There is a really nice cycle path that goes along the ocean and then back inland a bit. Then you can get on Danjin road to Sanzhi and see more spectacular views. There are very good seafood restaurants there... More

Go to Tamsui (also known as Dan Shui) to see the Old Street and Lovers' Bridge, which is located at Fishermen's Wharf. Try to time your visit to Lovers' Bridge to reach there before sunset as you can see the sunset from the bridge. To get to Tamsui, take the red line on the MRT. Tamsui is the last stop.... More

It's gonna be a bit crowded during weekends tho (But then you can... More
