Tamshui Old Street

The "Old Street" in Tamshui, Taiwan is over a century old although some of the shops and buildings may only be a few years old.

On February 26, 2016 early morning, there was a light drizzle and the old street was not crowded.  I soaked in a relaxed stroll to capture the memorable photos and atmosphere.  It was my first visit to this tourist attraction in Taiwan.

A Taiwanese mother protected her child with umbrella and warm clothing to keep away from the rain.

The first souvenir shop near the old street entrance and I brought the young friendly salesgirl some business to buy some souvenirs home.  The shops usually opened at 11:00 am and I helped her to push some of the display racks (not heavy ones) to the front of the shop.  She was very appreciative of a friendly Singaporean customer while we chat in Mandarin.

Ah Gei 阿給 is probably the most famous dish in Tamsui and very typical for the town.  Its fried tofu stuff with glass noodles in a spicy sauce and slurp down the unforgettable taste and flavor.

金山老街,懷念的步伐 遠離喧鬧的城市。一邊吃著台灣的傳統小吃,一邊體會難得的午後悠閒道地的台灣味,真實呈現在大家心中。
