Travelling by light rail is a top choice when visiting Tamsui so you don’t need to drive and can relax. You can enjoy the museums, old streets, food, and sea views, while being green and reducing your carbon footprint! Take Danhai LRT that is designed based on Jimmy’s artwork or visit the historic buildings with implications of Huwei culture. Take a walk to the historical sites and feel the history and art of Tamsui.

If you want to have more options, go to the FAB GREEN VILLAGE. There is a movie theater and a shopping center. It is a good place to take a break. Remember to walk to Fisherman’s Wharf to capture the sunset in photos.

Discovering local delicacy is an important task for many tourists. There is great food around the Blue Coast Line of LRT such as Little River Hotpot and Hezheng Bakery Kitchen. Through collaborating with local farmers, these restaurants offer organic food and local specialties, promoting the original flavor and seasonal food. Besides the classic snacks at the Old Street, be sure to explore these season-limited delicacies!

The Taishan Down Temple nearby has a history of 130 years, but its solemness has not been diminished over time.
