After that, we headed to the Tamsui Fisherman’s Whaft /the lover bridge of Tamsui. The place is simply beautiful with a strong wind blowing.
Tamsui Fisherman’s Wharf (Chinese: 淡水漁人碼頭) is a very scenic spot at the western tip of Tamsui District, New Taipei City, Taiwan. Its predecessor was the “Tamsui Second Fishing Port” on the right bank of the Tamsui river estuary, an important fishing harbor in the early history of north Taiwan.
The Tamsui Fisherman’s Wharf is well-known by its beautiful sunset and fresh seafood. While having sightseeing and leisure facilities, it still holds its functionality as a harbor for fishing boats.
One of the famous attraction will be the Lover Bridge of Tamsui, a white-colored Cable-stayed bridge, derived its name since it was started on February 14, 2003, Valentine’s Day. You may appreciate the sunset from the bridge. The total length is approximately 196 meters and the walk across takes approximately 3 minutes.
After our walk around the Fisherman wraft, we decided to take the boat to the 淡水老街 which is about 10- 15 minutes of the boat trip. It is indeed freek me out during the whole boat journey as it is the wave and the sea tide is too high and the sea water looks like going to pour in the boat..
and finally we reach safely to the harbour and next will blog our street trip at the Dan Shui Lao Jie (淡水老街 )
