After I finally got a chance to check into the hostel, Georgia and I took tge MTR to Tamsui. There we rented a bicycle and drove along the waterfront to the fisherman’s warft and Lover’s Bridge.
On this route you are supposed to see the best sunset, but since it was really cloudy that day, we could not see anything spectacular. But there are also very cute cafés along the water – perfect to relaxe or have a romantic afternoon or dinner, while watching the sunset.
Another option would be to eat at the stands of the nightmarket and get a first experience of la cuisine taiwanese. Althought the ice cream is quite cheap, as a European I would not say you necessarily have to try it; it is rather watery but sure looks good!
