Tamsui (Danshui)

Tamsui (Danshui)


Tamsui or Damshui is a sea-side district in New Taipei City in northern Taiwan. It is named after the Tamsui River; the name means "fresh water". The city is popular among the resident of Taipei thanks also to the famous sunset you can watch almost every evening. This historic town - originally home to Formosan indigenous peoples, next settled by the Spanish, expelled then by the Dutch - quickly became a popular destination when the MRT line was extended here in 1998.
Damshui is today a vibrant place to spend an afternoon strolling around, eating some nice food and waiting for the sunset!
