Take a seat at the Tamsui Fisherman's Wharf and enjoy the sunset moment, the night time scenery (lover bridge)is beautiful here! If you want, take a bike, and enjoy a ride along the riverside.

Easy to access via the MRT. Last station so no worries fighting for seats when u depart later as the crowd swells. A nice place to spend the evening. BUT do come during weekend as told less stalls during weekdays. not sure though but enjoyed the weekend crowd too. The lanes are wider so you wouldn't be packed and pushed... More

This long and endless rustic old street is another interesting hunting place for souvenirs and delicious local food. The most notable street that most visitors would congregate is the “Gong Ming Street” (公明街) where the Museum of Strange (Admission Fee of NT170, I think) is housed. The souvenirs sold in this street are of relatively high quality, comparable to those... More

First of all, travel to Danshuei (Tamsui station) on weekends if you want to experience the happening or the place. I heard they close on Monday. Many locals and tourists alike visit this place. The place is like a night market in Taipei city but facing the sea channel hence the breeze and cooler temperature. Just buy some street snacks... More

A short distance from the Danshui station is a street with lots of good street food. I love the fried mushrooms, grilled scallops, Ah Ma De plum juice and Ah Gei tofu shop. They also have little quaint retro shops selling souvenirs and other accessories. Suggested to visit in the evening, watch the sunset and then pig out at the... More

My 70-year old mother-in-law and I rented a bright yellow tandem bicycle along the river and rode all the way to Danshui and back. It was about 40-50km along the scenic river, and it took us near extensive sports centers, under highway overpasses, near beautiful bridge architecture, by an old temple built into the side of a hill, along Mangroves...

We love waters and this is a place for us. We visited the food stalls and spent an evening there. We also took a boat to Ba Li which is another small island 10 mins away. It was relaxing and enjoyable. We love being by the sea as the air is fresh. To get there, take the metro to Dan... More

We came in a Sunday evening and the place was full of Taiwanese enjoy the end of their weekend. The experience was nice since we got a glimpse of what Taiwanese do but I would not say this is touristic in the sightseeing sense. Most street food stalls don't look that appealing.

The whole area is very nice. Make sure you come for the sunset which is spectacular. The "Valentine's Bridge gets very colorful at night which is great for photography. At the end you can take a ferry back to Tamsui old street.

The old street doesn't feel that old. Having said that, it is a great way to spend a late afternoon strolling around the street and then watch the sunset
