Taiwan day 4 begun with a trip to the fishing wharf of Taiwan aka Tamshui or Damshui. We took the MRT here and it was a long route indeed, approximately 40 minutes. Arrived at about 11am and the place was empty, not many locals in sight and some shops only open later.
Tamshui used to be a fort built by the Portuguese when they came to the East. It is strategically located next to the sea and there are abundance of marine produce here (check out the stalls selling fried cuttlefish, fish, crabs and prawns!). Oh and feel free to cycle around, there's heaps of space for everyone:)
We walked further down the road and decided to turn back but before we head to our hotel, we brought ourselves to Ootoya Japanese restaurant, just to suss out the Japanese goods here, that is. Service is efficient and friendly. Portion size is huge for what we paid (from memory, it was about aud$15 per set).
