Danshui the nearly but not quite a seaside resort situated to the north of  Taipei on the mouth of the Tamsui River. Danshui is a great place to go and watch the sunset and attracts many visitors from Taipei. Unfortunately on the day i visited it was a little too cloudy to see a proper sunset but i certainly thought it was an enjoyable place to visit as it reminded me of a seaside town in the north of england with its stalls, arcades and sea front.You can also take a ferry across the mouth of the estuary for a few dollars. As you get off the MRT and turn left out the station walk past the Starbucks and up the street where are all the street vendors are, the aroma of all the different types of cooking was so strong as i walked up the narrow lane.
