This is a place that has a lot of people come to spend time eating, walking and fooling around. A lot of food stalls opening days and nights. Love the seaside to watch the sunset.

This old street seems longer and more interesting compared to the rest. And there’s a part of it that’s facing the sea, so you do have nice Breeze. Other then just loads of local street food, you can find shops selling dying age old crafts....More

Came here in the morning and was surprised by the crowd along the roads and alleys and riverwalk. Choices aplenty ranging from the more recents to the traditionals. Prices are cheaper here too than in XMD. A must visit.

We came here on a Saturday morning and had a great time perusing the shops and stalls. The foods and goods available are classic market wares, but it seems a little more chilled here than at the markets in Taipei city.

The street has many vendors selling food, drink and souvenir. Crowded over weekend, difficult to stroll.

A pedestrian street next to the river. Clean and pleasant and safe. Dozens of restaurants and varied food stands and shops. Near the temple is a stage with live performances.

There were souvenir and snack shops, but did not seem have culturally significant buildings or food specialty. We also took a boat to the Fisherman's wharf and found a few shops only. The bridge at the Fisherman's wharf looked good, and that was all I...More

Would definitely suggest to visit around late morning during cool days, before the busloads of tourists come. Public toilets are a rare find and even if you can find one, chances are they won't be clean. Just take a break at cafes or eateries (order...More

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
