Day 3: 2010 Christmas in Taipei (23 -27 Dec 2010)

Day 3: Danshui Old Street -> Lover's Bridge & Fisherman Wharf

We started our breakfast for the day with McDonalds breakfast set :)

Sausage McMuffin (but it's pork)..

Danshui Old StreetHow to get here:- By MRT:
Take Danshui MRT Line (Red Line) to Danshui MRT Station.

The scenery from Danshui MRT Station
I saw Mister Donut next to the MRT station.

Mister Donut is a large doughnut franchise. Once an American icon, the franchise now operates mainly in Japan, Philippines and other Asian markets... too bad it's not in Malaysia.
Before entering the Danshui old street...

Some stalls in the Danshui Old Street
There is even a cinema in Danshui Old Street... but I didn't realize it's a cinema from outside
As we walked on Danshui Old Street surrounded by numerous local delicacies and souvenir shops, we got attracted by crowds standing in front of a building with unique decorations. With a large banner displaying the name “Believe It or Not”, and a mysterious creature by the front, Believe It or Not Museum often arise curiosities of visitors when paying visits to Danshui Old Street!

Outside the museum entrance

After the museum, we walked towards the Danshui jetty area.

- Take a ferry ride from Danshui Ferry Pier to fisherman's wharf (about NT$50 per person)

Nice view from the ferry
Finally reached Fisherman's wharf ferry pier after about hmm...10 mins ride..*I think*
Lover Bridge of DanShui is a white-colored Cable-stayed bridge, derived its name since it was started on February 14, 2003, Valentine’s Day. You may appreciate the sunset from the bridge. The total length is approximately 196 meters and the walk across takes approximately 3 minutes.Walking over to the other side of the bridge... so freaking cold..
Tamshui Fisherman’s Wharf (淡水漁人碼頭) is a scenic spot at the western tip of Tamsui, Taipei County, Taiwan. Its predecessor was the “Tamsui Second Fishing Port” on the right bank of the Tamsui river estuary, an important fishing harbor in the early history of north Taiwan.

The Tamsui Fisherman’s Wharf is well-known by its beautiful sunset and fresh seafood. While having sightseeing and leisure facilities, it still holds its functionality as a harbor for fishing boats.
