DanShui/TamSui (淡水), a small charming city in the north of TaiPei (台北), that offers relaxing and laid back environment and atmosphere, huge variety of delicious local cuisines, beautiful sceneries, fun games and many more, a wonderful place that you will not want to miss. Everything seems moving slow at this laid back place, be it the people cycling slowly along waterfront’s pathway, senior citizens fishing at the docks, or the couples watching sunset… I like it…

danshui (or Danshuei, Tamshui, Tamsui) old street taipei

Danshui (also known as Danshuei, Tamshui, or Tamsui) is a laid back waterfront town on the northern part of Taipei city.  Historically this is a significant place in Taipei history, where it was one of the main settlements for the Spanish in the 1600’s.  It was also been influenced by the Japanese during the world war era having established its unique 1900’s architecture and infrastructure.  Its a great place to just stroll around, grab some great food, and just soak in the atmosphere.  Ever since I first stepped foot at Danshui, there was something about it that left a lasting impression on me.  Here are some of the reasons why I love Danshui so much.     Read Full Article →
