Our last full day was dedicated to exploring the National Palace Museum and Tamsui, where the Fisherman’s Wharf are found. These places are usually included in most Taiwan itineraries.
It’s very easy to go to Tamsui via the Metro Taipei.
The National Palace Museum comes first before Tamsui, so we decided to make a quick stop and learn a bit about history and culture.
Cameras were not allowed inside, but there are package counters where you can leave your bags and gadgets.
We continued the journey on the red line…
…until we reached Xinbeitou transfer and the train went back. Haha! As it turns out, there are two kinds of trains that traverse the red line. One goes to Xinbeitou and the other goes all the way to Tamsui. So lesson learned, check the signs and the screens before boarding trains along the red line!
After alighting Tamsui Station, we rode the R30 bus which brought us all the way to the Fisherman’s Wharf.
It would have been cool to walk on the bridge but it was a bit too far. Also, it would have been nice had there been a sunset. At least it didn’t rain!
Stay tuned for more posts about traveling in Taipei in the next few days!
