Once you arrive at Fisherman’s Wharf, you will see “Lovers' Bridge” from far away. At one end of the bridge, a curved giant pointed arch thrusts from the water towards the sky. The white surface of the bridge constantly changes colors in the reflection of light. The bridge is a landmark of the Tamsui Fisherman’s Wharf. In the fish market, you can pick any freshly caught seafood which the owner will cook for you. The shopping street and art street are filled with all sorts of creative souvenirs. The boardwalk and riverside cafes are the best spots for couples. And as the sun sets, the beautiful gradation of colors in the sky puts a final touch to an unforgettable time in Tamsui.

    Nothing to do here


    My wife and I went to Tamsui as a break from the city. After exploring the old street, we took the ferry to this fisherman's wharf as the reviews were generally positive. We soon discovered that aside from the bridge, there is absolutely nothing to do here. We crossed the bridge to the only other structure on the other side, which houses a seafood restaurant. The restaurant, however, only opens at 5 p.m., and the last ferry back to Tamsui departs at 6 p.m. So we just headed back. We were here in January, so perhaps things are different in the warmer months. Otherwise, save your MRT fare and don't bother taking the ferry.

    Parts under renovation, Rent a bike


    Parts of the walking path along the coastline closed for renovation. Alternative pathways available for cycling and walking, but view cannot be seen. Signs present to direct you in the right direction Walked ~2 hours to the Lovers' bridge Should have gotten a bicycle at the start Alternative: Take a bus from the start to the Lovers' bridge Nice walk if the weather is cool

    Fisherman's wharf is like Quayside Isle in Singapore - tranquil and beautiful but can be a little boring


    Nobody can deny, that staying at a hotel overlooking a harbor with beautiful yachts parked at the docks is simply a therapeutic experience. This is true of all similar harbors in Singapore's Quayside Isle, Taipei's Fisherman's Wharf and even Malaysia's Puteri Harbor. Love waking up to the relaxing feels of watching the boats go by, admiring beautiful yachts, and the general spaciousness such places provide. If you're here for a short visit - that's mostly what this place provides - a simple place to unwind. Sure, you can also enjoy seafood dinner here overlooking the harbor, but there are only a few options due to the current building of the new metro/ LRT station for Fisherman's wharf, causing many of the previous seafood restaurants on this stretch to be relocated. Lover's Bridge near the harbor is also a famous Tamsui attraction - but mainly just for photo-taking since there's not much on the other side of the bridge. The mall, 丽宝渔人码头广场, facing the wharf and attached to Fullon Hotel looked rather vacant and deserted, with almost no staff in sight, though I must commend the hotel for keeping this mall going with at least some kiddy rides and touristy shopping so there's at least Something to see and do while we waited for our hotel room to be ready. There is also a convenient mart facing the wharf for you to get drinks or for a short rest. Overall, you'll love it if you want tranquility and beautiful scenery for most of your holiday. The life of the town is probably over at Tamsui Old Street, a short 10 minutes cab ride away.

    Fisherman's Wharf


    Great view of the sunset! A few shops selling food and drinks as well and a small collection of childrens, arcade and claw machine games. Free to enter, some bars/restaurants have live music. Can even sit on the waterbreaker to watch the sunset as the waterfront gets crowded real early. Bridge lights up at night!

    Tamshui Fishermen's Wharf is really scenic with its abundance of boats and yachts; Fullton Hotel is nearby as well as the Subway outlet. The Lover's Bridge is the must visit and highly popular with young visitors and tourists. The sunset view as well as the night lights make this a really stunning place to capture vacation memories in photographs
