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.

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

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.

It's very simple to get to, being at the end of one of the train lines, and well worth a visit if you have the time. The main streets are full of activity, giving the feel of a seaside town. As per everywhere in Taiwan, good options are abundant - the popular places are worht looking for as well as... More

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
