TAIPEI, TAIWAN (TraNews) – Tamsui River, also known as Danshui River, is the third largest river in Taiwan with a length of over 140 kilometers. Ever since the Qing Dynasty, it has been considered to be a major economic port. However, with the rapid urban development and water pollution, Tamsui River is no longer as stunning as it used to be.

Fortunately, the popularity of Danshui tourism has raised by leaps and bounds in recent years, attracting throngs of domestic and foreign tourists alike sightseeing here. Thanks to that, the first blue highway was born that allows us to feel the pulse of Tamsui River once again. Ferries across the river to the town of Bali and the Fisherman’s Wharf depart from the Tamsui Ferry Pier. Under the supports of the county government, currently there are two blue highways available to meet different tourist groups’ preferences.

These blue highway routes will pass through several scenic spots like Guandu Ferry Pier, Tamsui Ferry Pier and Fisherman’s Wharf. While sightseeing on Danshui Old Street along the Tamsui River, travelers will be able to enjoy a tantalizing array of the old street’s delights, such as A-gei, iron eggs, fish balls, etc. and the stunningly gorgeous sunset at the waterfront.

The ticket fare may vary according to journey time. For instance, the ticket between Tamsui Ferry Pier and Bali Ferry Pier is about NT$40 and between Tamsui Ferry Pier and Fisherman’s Wharf is about NT$50. Tourists are highly recommended to make good use of Easy Card since it is much convenient and money-saving.
