Taiwan Trip Day 2 – Yangmingsan National Park –> Xinbeitou –> Tamshui Fisherman’s Wraft

by Taufulou

To get here, just take the train Danshui line and stop at the last stop of the train station.

Then you take a 10 minutes  (Bus Red-26, 836, or 837) bus ride to this lovely bridge.

day 2 (70)

Tamshui Fisherman’s Wharf (淡水漁人碼頭) is a scenic spot at the western tip of Tamsui, Taipei Country, Taiwan. Its predecessor was the “Tamsui Second Fishing Port” on the right bank of the Tamsui river estuary, an important fishing harbor in the early history of north Taiwan.

The Tamsui Fisherman’s Wharf is well-known by its beautiful sunset and fresh seafood. While having sightseeing and leisure facilities, it still holds its functionality as a harbor for fishing boats. (wikipedia)

Lover Bridge of Tamsui: Lover Bridge of Tamsui, a white-colored Cable-stayed bridge, derived its name since it was started on February 14, 2003, Valentine’s Day. You may appreciate the sunset from the bridge. The total length is approximately 196 meters and the walk across takes approximately 3 minutes. (wikipedia)

day 2 (112)

As we were walking back, saw this party boat that can be hired to cater for engagement, bachelor, birthday, celebration party to tour you around the area and party hard at the sea and the R&B music playing on that day was very tempting. Turn’s on my mood to club!

To come to Ximenting you hop off at Ximen Station.

day 2 (121)

After saw the whole place, we suddenly feel so alive as the crowd here are mostly teenagers and its well lit up, I would rate it as one of a shopping paradise area. 100xx much better than our Chee Cheong Kai.
