Taipei: Tamsui Fisherman’s Wharf


My intention to visit Tamsui Fisherman’s Wharf was to catch the sunset. Unfortunately, the weather doesn’t look promising. The wharf is a popular scenic spot at the western tip of Tamsui District. Just 1 hour away from Taipei City, Tamsui is good escape from the hustle and bustle city life.


There were many fishing boats docked at the wharf.

Lover’s Bridge of Tamsui


The Lover’s Bridge is a notable attraction at Tamsui. How the bridge got its name is because it was opened on 14 February 2003 on Valentine’s Day.


It was nice to take a stroll along the riverside.


It can be very windy at times.


There were many eateries located near the wharf.

Ferry to Tamsui Old Street


I took the bus to reach the wharf but the regular ferry is a good choice to avoid the rush hour traffic.

The bridge looks stunning at night too.
