Apart from doing the usual food and snacks hunting in Tamsui, we stumbled upon the ‘real old street’ of Tamsui a.k.a. Chongjian Street (重建街)
Read more about it’s history HERE , otherwise, just scroll down for photos by yours truly.
Well, of course we also did the usual…. how can we not have the famous AH GEK..
Caffein-fix at 83号咖啡
And of course…took a shot at the waterfront.
Glad to see one of my father’s orchid blooming after more than a year of TLC from yours truly who knew nuts about gardening.
Was on a ride to Danshui but ended up stopping at this quiet little place.
The highlight is none other than the Thermal Valley a.k.a. Hell’s Valley. It is a volcanic crater filled with steaming natural sulfuric hot spring water, historically, it was one of the 12 great destinations of Taiwan.
Despite the rain, we did not feel chilly at all due to the hot steam from the hot spring (the water can be as hot as 100°C)

Roughly following a guide we stumbled upon HERE, it was quite a pleasant stroll in the rain..

What a quiet suburb. Where is everybody?!
Ending the stroll a with hot cuppa
