  • Located at the Northern end of the Red MRT line is Tamsui Station. Soon as you exit the station, turn towards the right where the old street is. Shops are quite similar to the things you see at every ...  more »

  • Loved going here. It was lovely and cheaper than other areas for shopping. Check it out because it's right by the waterfront too. I loved it here!  more »

  • A good place for short visit.. 3-4 hour is good to explore the place.. Sit back n relax the scenery n street food.. Usually there's crowd during the weekend and we need to walk up to the place.. Parking lot is not easy to find, so be prepared to pay for it..
  • It's really beautiful at night, and the lights along the river are a breathtaking sight to see! The food is quite good, and the bike path is really fun as well! I would recommend renting a public bike using a kiosk, and going for a quick ride under 30 minutes (While the ride is free). I used a bike for a little over 30 minutes and was charged 10NT, but it was well worth the cost.
  • This is one of the most picturesque coastal area where you can enjoy a relaxing walk along the boardwalk. Remember to reach the coastal area before 6.30 pm where you will be treated with a spectacular sunset that will certainly take a breath away. Otherwise you can wander along the narrow tamsui old Street to browse and buy delectable snacks from almond cookies to spicy eggs. So much to see and so much to do. Lots of things to engage the senses for both young and old. It's a smorgasbord of traditional and modern shops and a treasure trove for adventure seekers. Do bring along a brolly cos it could rain without warning and there isn't much shelter at all.
  • This is a really interesting and Long Street by the seaside there are many things to try including some truly enormous ice cream servings.
  • So many redundant shops and cooking oil fumes. Great view. A few good shops. Good walk. Romantic.

Where to stay in Xinbei

Banqiao district offers the largest collection of hotels, guesthouses, and hostels in the new city, particularly around Fuzhong station.
