To get to Danshui you would have to take the red line to the last stop. It does take a while to get there if you're coming from Taipei main station area. We went on a Sunday and it was extremely crowded so I would suggest going on a weekday to beat the crowds. They have lots of food and... More

Arrived in Dansui around 7:30pm but shop already started to close and some already closed. It was 11 degrees and was rather cold along the coast. I love Dansui for its great space that lots of people can walk around without banging onto others.

I live part-time in Danshui and love to ride my bike along the river to the ocean east of Fisherman's wharf. There is a really nice cycle path that goes along the ocean and then back inland a bit. Then you can get on Danjin road to Sanzhi and see more spectacular views. There are very good seafood restaurants there... More

Go to Tamsui (also known as Dan Shui) to see the Old Street and Lovers' Bridge, which is located at Fishermen's Wharf. Try to time your visit to Lovers' Bridge to reach there before sunset as you can see the sunset from the bridge. To get to Tamsui, take the red line on the MRT. Tamsui is the last stop.... More

It's gonna be a bit crowded during weekends tho (But then you can... More

I spent the afternoon exploring Danshuei by foot, bicycle probably would have been a better option but I realized that too late. The old streets (shopping and food) come alive at dusk so don't expect much around the lunchtime hour. Walking to fishermans wharff and the rest of the attractions is definitely doable. DON'T go on the first Monday of... More

There're not much things here to explore. But we can take a lot of photos on the bridge with sea and some beautiful building as a background. So windy here, even on summer day. Nice place to visit with your family or friends.

I visited Danshuei twice. Short MRT ride away from central Taipei. The town offers a short historical stroll along Fisherman's Wharf and your stereotypical touristy shops. During the winter, the town can be very cold and windy due to it's location near the Ocean. The highlight of Danshuei is visiting Fort Santo Domingo, the old Spanish and Dutch trading fort/consulate... More

North terminal station on the red MRT line. Old street north of MRT station has plenty of food & souvenirs. Take a boat across for some seafood restaurants at "Bali" Or take a bus to the Fisherman's Wharf. Nice bridge & marina at this windy place.
