A very significant part of the Taiwanese culture is the sea-side district of Tamsui, in northern Taiwan, surrounded by splendid rivers and mountains. It is a historic town for locals and tourists thanks to its beauty and mainly to its sunset landscape. Tamsui is located about 40 minutes from Taipei and it is a must-see attraction with a great number of shops, street performances, hawker stalls, restaurants and cultural events. Paying a visit to Tamsui is really advisable, as well as going for a relaxing promenade along its boardwalk. Moreover, the Tamsui Ferry will take you across the river so that you can admire the well-known Lover’s Bridge.
