Lovely Area. Okay for a day-trip, or a Half-Day trip

Scenic and easily accessible by MRT (Train). Lots of good buys and interesting places to take pictures too. So, if you are tired of shopping along the alleys for a good buy... read more

Scenic and easily accessible by MRT (Train). Lots of good buys and interesting places to take pictures too. So, if you are tired of shopping along the alleys for a good buy, you can go for a massage, or go to the pier and hop on to one of their sightseeing boats to go to another island or place, where...

I think this was the most tourist-sy spot I went to for my latest trip to Taipei, and I have to say it was way too packed for my taste. The 'old street' sold tourist souvenirs and food that did not attract me, while out of the main area, it was a much better walk. The pier was a good... More

It's about half an hour from Taipei main station and a popular place during the weekend. There are plenty of food stalls for snacking and stalls for games. You could catch a boat ride to Fisherman Wharf which is a popular highlight. Alternatively catching a bus is viable. Bring warm clothing as it get windy, especially at this time of... More

It's beautiful. Whether you're checking out colonial architecture, Chinese temples, or want to dine out, it's well worth the MRT trip up there.

Very nice spot, lovely for couples, especially lovable around sunset. Gets really cold due to the wind and moisture during winter. Cafes nearby are touristic, they play random music from time to time, usually oldies. Sets the mood, though. Recommended for sure if you're in the area.

If you are in Taipei and want to have a one day trip at somewhere away from the chaos city, Danshui would be a good one. Also, if you get more time, go Bali by ferry. Bali is more quiet and relax although it access from Taipei so easily.

The drive to Danshuei from the north is just beautiful. The bridge is a lovely resting point. There are shops and restaurants along the dock. The bridge is famous for its view of the sunset. Since it was a cloudy evening we left before the sun actually set.

Danshuei was one of my very favourite areas in Taipei. The air isnt as humid and it feels so much more relaxed. The shops and markets offer some unique gift ideas. The ice cream is something to see. There are lovely areas to sit down and take in the views.

A lover's bridge across the Marina. Numerous shops at both end of the bridge. The bridge supposedly signify two lovers who meet each other. There isn't much to see at the bridge. The nearby market is much more interesting.

Danshuei was a city of seaside. We took metro for more than 1 hour to Danshuei to see sunset. We rent a jet boat to take us to middle of sea in order to take a better view of sunset and It was worth every penny that we paid for it. After sunset, we went to the night market to... More
