It was already late in the afternoon when we arrived at the Fisherman's Wharf.
A crowd has already gathered at the wharf, both locals and tourists. The first thing that greeted us was the iconic Lover Bridge. The white pedestrian bridge was said to be built on Valentine's Day, hence, the name of the bridge.
Down at the boardwalk, the mood was festive. Music was blaring, mime artists were keeping the crowd amused, families and couples were enjoying their time together while others were enjoying the scenes at the wharf.
Too bad, the afternoon sky was a haze that we didn't get to watch the sunset as most travel guides suggested.
From the Fisherman's Wharf, we took a ferry to Tamsui (or Danshui). It was a short ride. If you don't mind getting wet from the sprays of the river, then staying on the deck would be nice to watch the wharf as it fades into the horizon.
When we docked at Tamsui, the vibe was all the more charged. More tourists, more stalls, more food and games.
We sampled the variety of street food while walking the whole stretch of Tamsui's waterfront.
With tired feet and full tummies, we enjoyed our day at the Fisherman's Wharf and Tamsui waterfront.
