We did not waste any time and headed to our first destination: Tamsui Old Street. There’s a cute waterfront with lots of shops nearby. And many street markets too!
Like many street markets, there are tons of foods, groceries and many exquisite foods, like the cake below. Everyone was crowding around and many individuals got 2-3 cakes. Unfortunately, I and others were too stuffed (from enjoying all the street food) to eat any. I’m sure it’s good (cause then why would people be lining up, less it’s a fad! :O )
It’s quite a long journey if you start at the subway station and work you way down towards to waterfront. I found, by the time I reached the pier, I was somewhat tired and wasn’t in the mood for seeing the rest of what this area had to offer. But anyway, maybe it was the people I was with, that wanted to be in hurry. I would recommend sitting down by a cafe or getting a drink and enjoy the afternoon.
