PLEASE ASK PERMISSION BEFORE YOU RE POST MY PHOTOS ON TO YOUR BLOG. THERE ARE SOME BLOGGERS WHO DID NOT ASK MY PERMISSION AND REPOST MY PHOTOS WITHOUT THE COURTESY OF LINKING BACK TO MY BLOG. THIS IS LIKE STEALING. PEOPLE, I HAVE SPEND MUCH TIME TAKING PHOTOS AND DOING HOMEWORK ON MY TRAVELLING INFORMATION AND KINDLY SHARE THESE INFORMATION TO ANYONE INTERESTED IN THEM. IF NECESSARY I WILL POST SCREEN SHOT OF YOUR BLOG TO SHOW YOUR BAD MANNERS OF STEALING MY PHOTOS. THE MOST DISGUSTING THING THEY DID WAS TO SCREEN SHOT MY PHOTO AND CORP OFF MY BLOG TITLE AND REPOST IN THEIR BLOG.
From Wufenpu, we took the MRT from Houshanpi MRT Station to Danshui MRT Station. We need to change at Taipei MRT Station to Danshui MRT Station. It costs us NT60 each. It was a long ride.
The temperature was dropping in the evening, was so cold and misty. Luckily we brought along our wind breakers.
It is named after the Tamsui River, the name means "fresh water". The town is popular as a site for viewing the sun setting. Although it was around 5 pm, the whole place was misty, we could not view any sun. We could take the ferry across to the other side but the misty weather and rough sea put us off.
Terminal for taking the ferry.
These are all just next to the Danshui MRT Station, very easy to locate.
The streets behind this building were active with lots of entertainment and shopping and with the buildings blocking the wind, it was not so cold when we walked between the buildings.
Lady trying to sell her iron eggs. Iron eggs (鐵蛋) are eggs which have been repeatedly stewed in a mix of spices and air dried. The resulting eggs are dark brown, chewy and, about half its initial size. The famous Iron eggs store is Grandma's Tiedan (阿婆鐵蛋).
I like this place, lots of interesting stalls and shops.
Before you decide to return to the Danshui MRT Station, do take note that opposite the MRT Station are more shopping streets. We quickly cross over to the other side from the Danshui MRT Station.
We were really very tired after a long day of walking in the streets. Very happy indeed and good thing the Danshui MRT Station is the terminal, we could find empty seats. The train is really very clean.
Some videos to show you the activites in Danshui. I will come here again when I next visit Taipei.
