Danshui is very vibrant with a long stretch of stalls selling a large variety of food and toys. It is like the 夜市 (night market) and enhanced by the lovely Danshui Fisherman Wharf that runs along it. There are also numerous artists providing caricatures (from NT200). There are buskers too who are really talented singers. It's very easy to get... More

Fun and relaxing experience on a weekday! It's really an easy red line metro ride from Taipei Station all the way to the Danshuei area. Then hop on the convenient shuttle bus at the last stop. Couldn't be easier to get there. It's a lovely place to see the water and enjoy the sunset. You can enjoy shopping , snacks... More

We took the MRT to Tamsui station on a Sunday. Very popular with locals. There are lots of shops and food. We tried the cuttlefish balls -yum. A fun day out from Taipei and train is not expensive at all $40.

A popular tourist attraction in Tamsui, and it is easy to see why. Lovely suspension bridge over the river brings you across to Fisherman's Wharf. On a sunny day, the clear blue skies makes this place a photographer's delight. The promenade stretches across the banks, with well laid out signs and walkways. Restaurants and delightful cafes dotted the bank. The... More

We had the opportunity to walk along the promenade from the metro station to the fisherman's wharf and enjoyed the sunset views. The pathway is well signed and takes you along the water with some parts along the roadside sidewalk. You'll have views of the water, many shops and restaurants along the way, and lots of people watching.

It's nice and relaxing, and a good place to enjoy the local favourties. Take a ferry to the Fisherman's Wharf, and enjoy your drinks and whatever mother nature offers.

It was a rainy afternoon when we went to Danshui Wharf, and December weather was cold. Although we were not able to cross the bridge this time, still it was a lovely sight to behold. We enjoyed the night market. There were a good mix of stores with nice items, and interesting food. It's always a delightful place to visit.... More

Dansui is a fun getaway seaside town away from the hustle and bustle of Taipei. Just half an hour ride or less, you get to feel the sea breeze, ride a bike and enjoy an idyllic old town feel. From cafes to unique food items, this is an easy half day escape which is enjoyable and relaxing. We combined this... More

A place that worth for a half day trip. My friend and I rent bicycles and cycle around Tamsui. We enjoyed the breeze along the river bank and eat some local foods at the Tamsui's street. Do pay a visit to Fisherman's wharf and customs wharf. Not to forget, visit to Fort San Domingo and Oxford college.

Tamsui tourist resort is a good place to go. There is an old street near the Tamsui MRT station. It is one of the busiest part in Tamsui, and you can shop and eat the local alleys cuisine over there. There are also some scenic spot. They are very pretty, and you can look at them while you are shopping.... More
