  • It's a bit far from the city - the very end/start of one of the MRT lines. The food selection is more or less the same, but the vibe is different. Best to go at night, when the character of the street...  more »
  • Tamsui Park right next to the street. Well first of all the great dishes, such as squid and Coco milk Castella. singular going is this park. Castella is delicious!!!

  • 說是老街,我覺得叫夜市比較適當,沒什麼老街的感覺,賣的東西跟其他地方夜市大同小異,重複性質也很高,一條路也不長,很快就逛完了,如果時間有限,建議沿著河邊走就好了,那邊賣的東西大致上也一樣,但至少那裏可以一邊欣賞河景。

  • Bustling streets filled with nostalgia. My experience at Tamsui will be nothing without the warm-hearted Taiwanese hospitality displayed by stall owners. Prices are reasonably priced so its advisable not to haggle or low ball. There's a wide array of street food and tangibles so it is alot to look forward to. Personally would love to come back during the cold season. So make time to stop by Tamsui River for a quick view, perhaps some pictures for keepsake!
  • Tamsui is famous for its old street and you definitely need a bicycle or an electric scooter to get to the lovers bridge. it is quite a distance away and will require 1 hour via bicycle to get there. there are the city bikes at the start of the trail so you can do the rental there. there are a large variety of food selection there though many stores are selling deep sea squid. good experience overall and suggested time spent there will be about 3-4 hours.
  • souvenir shops and some small bites along.. short stretch. good to pass by after some phototaking at tamsui
  • Lots of great food...very crowded on holidays. Carnival atmosphere.
  • A nice scenic place to have some photos of the sunset along the fisherman's wharf follow by a visit to the old street. Quite a short street, do walk along near the park area which is a much quiet walk.
