Night Market Continued: Tan Sui Fisherman's Wharf

After the "Shih-Lin" night market, We arrived at our destination, Tan Sui, late at night. We checked into a hotel that we previously looked up on the Internet. The next morning, we wasted no time packing up again and leaving the hotel behind for a full day of sightseeing.

The hotel is just 5 min away from the Tan Sui coast:
It was a gloomy-weather day with strong winds. (The winds remind me of San Francisco Bay.) All the photos look a bit gray :-( This is a shot of Tan Sui Fisherman's Wharf, complete with the block of pedestrian stores and the shoreline right behind it. This is the place where the river of Tan Sui meets the Pacific Ocean.
We strolled along the river of Tan Sui.
Boats ferry tourists across the river and back.
Where there are tourists, there will be no shortage of snack vendors. A little girl is selling glazed cherry tomato w/ plum.
A trip to Tan Sui is not complete with a taste of its local specialty - Tan Tofu, Fish Ball Soup, and Steamed Pork Buns.
Turkish immigrants also set up shops along the river.
Wow..what's with the long line? Let's get a closer look....
Huge sweet potatos hang on the mobil mini cart. How cool is that!
