TamSui Old Street 淡水老街 is located in one of the largest port in Taiwan and this is where you can enjoy the scenic view of the seaport. There are ferry rides available where you can take to reach the opposite bank of the port, the Bali Left bank. As you stroll along Tamsui street, you will come across food stalls that sell seafood snacks like fried squid, shell fish, scallop and more.
Do remember to try Tamsui specialty snack call ‘Ah Gei’ which is beancurd skin stuffed with glass noodle and also, the traditional sponge cheesecake where there is a long queue for it.
Other than food there are also bags, accessories, local snacks like the iron egg and fried fish cracker which is also another Tamsui specialty. For Hello Kitty lovers, there is a pastry shop that sells Hello Kitty pastry which you will see if you walk along the old street.
TamSui Old Street is one of the must-go places during your stay in Taipei.
