Description

Discover the beauty of Taipei's shore with a visit to the fantastic geological site of Yehliu. Later, stop by Fort San Domingo and see the castle-like fort built by the Spaniards before you take a stroll at the old seaside district of Tamsui (formerly called Dashui).

Begin your tour with pick-up at your hotel in Taipei and drive 1 hour northwest to Yehliu Geopark, a national park. Admire the magnificent scenic views of the coastline and upon arrival, be mesmerised at the remarkable rocky promontory overlooking the bay. Enjoy photo opportunities of the many distinctive hoodoo stones with unique names such as Queen's Head, Fairy Shoe and Ginger Rocks.

Break for a tasty lunch before making your way to Fort San Domingo, Taiwan's most prominent structure with foreign involvement. Originally built by the Spanish in 1629, the fort was reconstructed by the Dutch to incorporate a red brick veranda and red roof tiles, which helped earn the fort's nickname, Fort of the Red Heads.

Then, head to the historical Tamsui district and walk on Tamsui Old Street along the riverbank. Get a closer look at the traditional red brick buildings before strolling to the market. Take the chance to sample Tamsui's most famous and authentic dish, ah gei – fried tofu with noodles and spicy sauce – and notable snacks like fish dumplings and grilled squid. Before your tour takes you to your hotel, lean against the fence of Tamsui Fisherman's Wharf and enjoy the breeze and sights at the Tamsui River's mouth.
