Located in the northern Taipei city area, Danshui is a historic riverfront town famous for the 17th century built Fort San Domingo, old streets and traditional food and for its night scenery along Danshui River. With so much to do in Danshui, it may be hard to decide what to do first. So, here is a one-day free walking tour to guide you through this beautiful town. This tour is ideal for those who like history, souvenir shopping, river scenery and traditional cuisine. First, we’ll visit the respected Danshui Mackay Hospital. Built by George Mackay, the Canadian missionary, in the 1870’s, it was the first western hospital in Taiwan. Then we’ll uncover the Customs Officer’s Residence, one of several dwellings occupied by foreign officers of the Qing Dynasty customs bureau. Halfway to Fort San Domingo, we’ll take a break at Aletheia University and its distinct architecture. Last but not least, we’ll visit the red concrete fortifications of Fort San Domingo, a small, sturdy fort built by the Spanish in 1629, which contains a wealth of Taiwanese history, and also some spectacular views of the river. The bustling streets and historical monuments of Danshui are a fantastic starting point to better understand Taiwan and its rich culture.
