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.

Entry to Taipei
Aug 2020
The Danshui River was once the entry to Taipei, the entrepot for Taiwan. The river is still an important gateway for northern Taiwan, but it is not as important as it once was.

Excellent cycling trail
Nov 2019
We started cycling from Yongfu bridge. There's a bike rental shop there. Cycled around 30km along the river towards Beitou, and saw the view change from river, to mangrove swamp, to factories, to the East China sea. Highly recommended to experience a different side of Taipei.

Beautiful river
Jul 2019 • Solo
It is called river, but as it is very close to the mouth of river, it seems to be a bay. In Tamsui, there are many historical monuments, which are worth visiting. But just to see the river and walk along the riverside, it is worth visiting Tamsui.

Nice views and a relaxing place
Mar 2019 • Friends
This location is right along the river with lots of places to eat snacks (everything on a stick), a little shopping, stroll along the river, take a ferry ride, ride a bike, or sip some coffee while enjoying the views. It’s a fun place at night too! Easy access from the MRT.

Awesome wharf
Dec 2018
This used to be a mangrove swamp but they built the ramp so that it become a wharf with shops selling fried seafood and many delicacies. My boy loves the Turkish ice cream where they will perform trick on you before giving you the ice cream. Take the ferry to cruise over to Bali Bank for wonderful bicycle rides.

Dan Shui -- nice scenery and green environment
Dec 2018 • Couples
The area of Dan Shui River has a long history since Qing Dynasty. Dan Shui means "fresh water" in Chinese. The river is very beautiful and there are mangroves growing along the coast.

The area was also a challenged area amongst Spanish, Dutch and Qing soldiers in accessing the northern part of Taiwan in the Qing Dynasty. Heritage buildings like churches can be found.

The river side is very good for walking, cycling and photo taking.

Serene and Picturesque River, A Total Contrast to Busy Taipei City
Sep 2018 • Friends
The four hours evening river cruise is a relaxing yet enchanting moment for any visitors to visit the busy Taipei City. The sunset and after dusk scene along the River are so beautiful that no one would believe that the travelers are in a busy urban environment. The River Cruise departed from DaDaoCheng Jetty, traveling toward the river head in Dan Shui Old Town; then made an U-turn back to the jetty. Good experience.

Beautiful river - with good access
Mar 2018 • Solo
The Dan Shui (or Tamsui River) meanders its way throughput Taipei eventually opening into the Taiwan Strait near Tamsui. There are numerous biking/walking pathways along the river. Several boats ply the water carrying passengers from one side to the other. Numerous bridges cross the river and provide an attractive backdrop. Along the river you can find temples, old neighborhoods, parks, restaurants and excellent access to many parts of Taipei.
