Danshui Overview

Danshui, or Tamshui as it is also known, is a port town outside of Taipei. Technically a suburb of Taipei, it's well outside the city and definitely feels like its own town with its own flavor. It can be easily reached on Taipei's subway system.

Though not a beach town, the tourism in Danshui is closely connected to the water, i.e. ferries, a fisherman's wharf, and a seaside strip reminiscent of a California boardwalk with games and food stalls. The sites and activities aren't quite as exciting as what you would find in Taipei, but that's not why most people come here. Here you'll find a quieter destination near the water and some great food that you may have a hard time finding in Taipei.
