Dahshui was once a day trip from Taipei, now it's only half an hour on the MRT. The old town is fascinating, it dates from the Japanese colonial perod. It's easy to get around Danshui, just wander and see what you find.

Great view by the sea! Was there at about 4pm, not much people. But when it got about 5pm the crowd started coming in. There were lots of different kinds of food, drinks and games. A pity it was raining, otherwise would be able to take better pictures! Highly recommended !

Last station using redline MRT Tan Shui is a hidden gem of seafood, and great site for sunset. The "Ah Gei" beancurd skin with glass noodle filling is a must try, and also their freshly baked egg chiffon cake with Cheese. the Seafood dinner is very decent. Take a short boat trip cross the bay you be able to access... More

Great view over the water and slight seabreeze, the place is filled with stalls selling grilled and fried squid. Great atmosphere at night as there might be a few buskers around performing. I especially like the Sachima from one of the old stores along the water - try the original and seaweed flavours, they taste so good and smell phenomenal.... More

This is an easily reached destination. You simply get to the subway line that services Danshuei and it would be the last stop. What you might need to get yourself used to is the crowd. On a particularly hot and humid day, make sure you drink plenty of water to stay hydrated. Local people and overseas people come here during... More

Awesome view during sunset. Suggest you travel during late afternoon and visit danshui old street and nearby attraction before going there at 4 to 5pm. The sunset view is really nice and because the area is big, you do not feel overwhelmed by the crowd.

Situated at end of one metro line. Worth to spend a day to visit the Fishermen Wharf to enjoy the sea and later head back to walk through the LaoJie Street. Lots of eating places and interesting shops selling tidbits and stuff.

It's a pretty good idea to spend the whole afternoon and watch the sunset here. There're also many cafés alongside of the river. Just choose one and waste your time there lol.

A pleasant day outing to this waterfront park, excellent seafood and lover’s bridge. Stay for the sunsets – they are almost always spectacular! Write a wish on a wooden board and let it blow in the breeze until (hopefully) it comes true just for you! Bus Red 26, 826 or 857.

Visited Danshuei in September of 2015 and despite the light rain really enjoyed walking around sampling foods and exploring some small shops and cafe's. Took a boat out and around to the fisherman's wharf area and to see the famous Lovers Bridge. It's very inexpensive and worth the price! We didn't realize that their was a typhoon heading towards Taipei,... More
