If you like night markets, this is a worthwhile one a40 minute MRT ride from Taipei. Plenty of food stalls, and typical made in China junk.
This place is amazing for sunset viewing along the horizon. It's a pity that a bridge will soon be built across the mouth of the bay. Make sure you try the most famous dish in tamsui called "a-geh". It's a bundle of glass noodles inside a tofu skin which is sealed with fish paste. The most popular store is referred... More
Danshui market sells the same thoroughfare as other markets in Taipei city. After going through all the night markets in Taipei, Danshui street market shopping leaves very little appeal for our family. Still we did ate as we walk and even bought a few items (cause it is slightly cheaper than the markets in town) When we visited Fisherman's wharf,... More
Visited Danshui on a Saturday and was shocked by the crowd at and around the night market. (Although I must say the food is good and the atmosphere is very lively.) However, I was really blessed that at Fisherman's Wharf (a ferry's ride away) the human traffic was very light despite the perfect weather for watching the sunset and that... More
Take the train all the way to Tamsui - red line. Upon exiting from station, turn left n turn left again. Tamsui old street is located next to Starbucks. 2 mins from the station. Truly enjoyed ourselves as the weather was really cold. Merchandise are cheaper as compared to what was sold in night markets like Shilin. Best place to... More
Most people goes to Danshui (aka Tamshui) and just walk thru the Old Street (老街), that's where main tourist fare are. However, if you have the time, there's more to Danshui, take a walk beyond the Old Street and there're much more to discover. Nice little cafes and shop, and a nice walk along the river thru to the other... More
Danshuei is the beautiful place to see. Its located in north of Taipei, situated next to the river. Danshuei has a very modern feel to it as you can find cafes, restaurants and shops scattered everywhere.
The weather was cloudy when I set off for Danshuei, and I knew I was probably not going to see a beautiful sunset that day. Well, a few photos here and there may also be nice. Besides, the old street will be abuzz with good food and street performers (or so I thought...). It started to pour when I arrived.... More
This is a place one should definitely visit when in Taipei. Parking is a problem on Saturdays, so I would suggest you to take the MRT. The moonlit 'love bridge' just looks amazing.. don't miss the live music near the Subway area across the bridge.. and the lip-smacking food near the wharf...
I came to this place 4 years ago, the cycling and walking path were not as extensive. Today, they have extended part of the pier and it is normally packed with locals and tourists - cycling, kite flying, lazing around. Sometimes you see street performers too, like B-box and statues. From the MRT station you can choose to ride or... More
