If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of Taipei, I really suggest visiting the Danshui area right outside the city. It can be reached easily by subway and is the last stop on the line. It is where a river meets the ocean. There is a cool breeze here, but be careful coming here when it's... More

Dan Shui Old Street was a great place to walk around. You will see many street stalls along the sides of the road selling food like smelly tofu, tea, barbequed squids, ice cream and iron eggs. If you are bored you can always visit the old school game stalls for a game or two. Turn to your right at the... More

Just come back from Taiwan. This place is very hot and heat when we visited last week. Not recommended to visit Taiwan during summer. Not much things to be viewed. Just the "Qingren qiao" and the "laojie". The famous food "A-Ke"Totally out of taste. Just the fish ball can be eat.

This is my 3rd trip to Taiwan and I finally visited it after my hot spring trip at Beitou. People usually plan a day trip with these two places together due to their location along the red MRT line. As expected, the place was flooded with tourists as well as locals who were spending their weekend there. I also took... More

Danshui, I feel, is a little over-hyped. There really is nothing much to see in Danshui apart from its old street selling street food and whatnots that can easily be found in Taipei's night markets. The Danshui promenade is nice to walk along because of the breeze in summer and the views it accords. Fisherman's Wharf is rather average as... More

It was a nice walk thru the old streets of Danshuei. The night markets were very vibrant and crowded. Netted some good buys of ginger tea. A lot of snack shops too. On the other (quieter) side of Danshuei, we walked up to the fisherman's wharf and lovers bridge, taking in the lovely night lights.

This place is a romantic area for everyone. You can see the sea with the blow of the wind on your face. I have ever take my picture on the bridge, very cool photo i guess. For those whose walk with their lover will have the best memories when they coming home. There are so many dining area with many... More

Compare with other old street, Dan shui don't have any advantage. I just stay one hour in this street and go to downtown by subway.
