The area
Neighborhood: Tamsui / Bali District
The enchanting Tamsui Old Street boasts the most beautiful Fisherman’s Wharf sunset of Taiwan. There are also well-complimented delectable snacks such as Ah Gei (bean curd) and fish ball, etc. On Bali left bank, there is the Ferry Old Street and Wazihwei Nature Reserve. It is relaxing and comfortable whether by strolling or cruising through on a bike. Besides the bustling business district, Tamsui is also full of an old vintage flavor. From western architectural relics to residences dating back to Japanese rule, each with their respective features and great stories to tell. If you visit Tamsui in spring, the magnificent cherry blossoms of Tianyuan Palace are a must see. If you wish for further intimacy with nature, why not camp out for the night under the starry sky. The Bali culture park camping site offers round, transparent bubble tents. Experience the close, seamless connection to surrounding nature from within for an unforgettable memory.

Open air market - visit this and the old street
Oct 2018 • Family
This is the open air market and not the old street. If you follow this market from the train station up to the road and cross it you will end up at the old street which is undercover.

This street is catered more to the tourists and has the tall ice cream. Plenty of souvenirs, snacks, drinks and other odd things to buy.

I prefer to the old street more. Visit this street for 1.5 hours and the old street for 2 at least.

Interesting to try Taiwanese street food
Apr 2017 • Solo
I have been there a few times, there are many different street food you can pick up, or if you wanna buy some gifts, this will be a good choice to check around. Just be aware of the traffic, always check if there's motorbike/car coming due to the narrow street.

Get away from the city...
Aug 2015 • Couples
A place you would love to walk around, eat shop and enjoy. It’s a very nice get away from the city of Taipei. You can relish local delicacy, fruits and cakes and ice creams while strolling.

A nice break from busy Taipei
Feb 2015 • Couples
My wife and I have a knack for hating crowds, yet going to densely populated areas for vacation. Taipei is one of those places, so after a few days in the city, we hopped on the subway to get out of town. Tamshui is a long subway ride to the west of Taipei and a nice change, too. It's still crowded, but in a different way. People there seem to be mostly tourists from all over the world.

The street is narrow and lined with shops and snack restaurants, all catering to tourists. A lot of the little shops sell traditional arts and crafts, and they are very interesting to look through even if we didn't buy much. Prices are not unreasonable for a tourist town, either. It was a very nice half-day getaway. It's nice to be able to just jump on the subway and, less than an hour later, be in a place that has a totally different vibe.

If you're spending five or more days in Taipei, I recommend taking an afternoon and going up to Tamshui. If you're staying fewer than five days, forget it; there's plenty to do in Taipei.

lively street and lots of good cakes
Feb 2015 • Friends
Location near the river which seems like a see is scenic. But it is the street life which was the most interesting during my visit. Lots of small shops and street stalls with so many temptation. I didnt plan to but after some free sampling of delicious cakes from local bakeries I ended up with a few boxes... pineapple cake was the winner... Nice place for a few hours.

Shop and Eat Till You Drop
Sep 2014 • Friends
Tamshui old street in Taipei is a long street that is for pedestrian only. Both sides of the street are lined with shops selling souvenirs, food, drinks, bags, clothing, etc. The specialty foods at Tamshui old street is the extra long ice cream, XXL fried squid, red bean bun, fish floss bun, sugar cane and guava drinks. You can shop and eat at the same time. We went in the evening so the weather was nice and cooling. The place can get crowed easily with locals and tourists.
