hkskyline's 2008 - TAIPEI #11 : Danshui

Danshui is north of Taipei where the river meets the ocean. Surprisingly, there is a sizeable collection of World Heritage buildings around here.

Emerging from the train station, I walked along the waterfront promenade.















The inside streets were bursting with street food.



































Back to the promenade for some serenity ...







There are a couple of traditional Chinese temples in Danshui.







Art in the city ...



Perhaps the biggest surprise was the colonial legacy and the sizeable stock of World Heritage buildings left from that era. This is the Danshui Church ...





Huwei Mackay Hospital



Map



Aletheia University







More historic architecture in the next part.

Those businesses must make tons of money with so many people walking by.
