This is worth a day walk if you have sufficient time in Taipei. The street has lots of food stalls, cafes, shops. You can also choose to relax by the wharf. I was glad that we decided to roam around on Sun and I found a souvenir shop selling all types of crystals miniature. I don't have to go all... More

If you have been to any city or town built by a bay with a boardwalk and with endless food outlets, then you have been to Danshuei! I wouldn't waste my time going here at all, unless you want to get out of the hustle and bustle of Taipei. It's just a long boardwalk by the water, with lots of... More

We really enjoyed Danshuei. We stared in Bali and took the ferry over we checked out a few places, churches, restaurants etc. then we jumped back on the ferry to head to the warf. That was a lot of fun. It was a bit windy when we went but still beautiful. The night market was great. So many new and... More

After endless walks through Taipei, went to spend the late afternoon in Danshui. The MRT is already by the sea, so you are already by the shore where all the shops and food stands are. It was very nice at sunset. Had a quiet walk along the conriche, saw a few food spots, typical souvenir shops. The walk to the... More

We visited Danshui Old Street in the late afternoon. Lots to eat but honestly, nothing really fantastic. We were too stuffed by the time we reached the shops selling ' Ah Gei' so we did not try that. We spent an hour or so just sitting by the river and catching the sunset. The esplanade was not crowded, so we... More

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
