It's an OK place to take it easy and stroll around the bay as long as the sun is not out. There is no shade. You can take a boat ride Danshuei harbor but there's not much to see there except for the pedestrian bridge. If you don't have much time in Taipei I'd say skip this place.

Being outside in Tamsui is a real pleasure. The streets are clean and green. Thanks being close to the river it was always windy and not hot. The area around the fort is perfect for a picnic. And the waterfront is a pleasent stroll or short bicycle ride. Even the crowded Old Street was worth a look, especially for someone... More

Unless you are familiar with taiwan TV program, else it is not a tourist attraction place but rather a place for a relax weekend for food, for concert near the jetty.

Crowded on weekends, repetitive storefronts. Good ocean photo ops, and people watching. Take ferry at your own risk.. there is no safety speech.. life-vest seemed to be located more towards the front of the boat in plastic bags.

This is easily assessable through Taipei Metro, the last station on the red line. We just love the relaxing walk trough the old street with its own delicacies and a lot of souvenirs, bags and clothing shops to explore. The side street leading to the wet market is also a fun place to explore. The fresh from oven table top... More

This harbor front boardwalk with food, drinks and games is probably great for families. Not really my thing. But easily accessed by city train service. I enjoyed walking a bit and seeing the old fort and university on the hill. I wouldn't rate this as a top place to visit, but if you have time, or you have kids, it... More

A beautiful view with nice view and nice air breeze for afternoon walk. It is a bit crowded in one side but in another side I still can enjoy my moment.

I enjoyed my day trip to this area. Took the ferry to the fisherman's market which was very nice. Beautiful views and food galore as is always the case in Taiwan.
