Taipei Tamsui River Tourist Attraction

Away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Taipei in Taiwan is the historical Tamsui District.

Set on the western tip of Tamsui and along the Tamsui River is the Fisherman’s Wharf.

The Tamsui District has played an important role in the early commerce of the city since the Qing Dynasty being the center of shipping and harbor of boats travelling to and from the northern areas.

Now, it’s a popular tourist destination, famous for the beautiful sunset and at the same time, still functions as a harbor for fishing boats and trading seafood.

It’s relatively easy to go to Tamsui via the metro as it is the last station of the red line.  Several bus services also head to the Fisherman’s Wharf or you can take the river cruise from the Tamsui Old Town.

One of the most popular attractions in the Fisherman’s Wharf is the Lover Bridge.

The white Lover Bridge was opened on February 14, 2003, Valentine’s Day, hence the name.  It connects the Boardwalk and the market.
