Zhuwei Fishing Harbor(竹圍漁港)
Zhuwei Fishing Harbor is a fishing port with recreational function in northern Taoyuan; its beautiful scenery also attracted the crew of the TV drama, “PS Man” to shoot here. There is a rainbow bridge at the northern entry of Zhuwei Fishing Harbor. This Nielson-Lohse steel arch bridge has become a popular landmark, making the fishing port more romantic at night.
Visiting Zhuwei Fishing Harbor, you simply have to feast on seafood. Restaurants with seafood directly delivered from the Port are mostly distributed on the southern bank. On the other side, the fishing association has set up an outlet center. Each booth presents quality dishes and skilled cooking. With reasonable prices, seafood lovers should never miss this place!
On the southern side of Zhuwei Fishing Harbor is the office building of the fishing association. It has a 360-degree revolving restaurant right next to the beach, where visitors can feast on gourmet food while enjoying the fishing harbor and the stunning sunset.

Filling in time between flightsWe went on a Wednesday. It was very hot. We expected a bustling harbour with lots of food stalls. I think we were there at the wrong time. There are lots of places upstairs to eat fresh seafood but it wasn't very busy. I think going in winter or later at night might be better. Very authentic, no English spoken, no English menus, not easy to get a taxi back but eventually you get one. 2 Chinese temples
A Taste of Real Fishing HarborThis fishing village gives you a taste of real fishing harbor - the magnificent harbor view of the fishing port with rainbow arch like bridge; and a pure products from its sea market place. One may enjoy the view and the thrill of shopping seafood, both wet and dried; but don't forget to go up one level of the fish market to a huge eating place, a food court specialized in seafood. If your visit is in the evening, the sunset is as attractive as the village.
Good experienceI was transiting in Taipei and decided to get out of the airport. It was a weekend and the entire place was teeming with locals. There was a open air market place selling cooked food, local delicacies. I tried every single stall there (minus the fermented toufu), and the food was just awesome. I did not go into the fresh food market nor the restaurants on the upper level as the crowd was just unbelievable. The cab driver on the way there told me it was a mistake to come on a weekend due to the crowd. Well, this was a transit, not as if I had the luxury of time. One thing every tourist should be aware of. There is ample cab service to this place. But there is none going from this place back to the airport!!! Hailing a cab on the streets is also out of the question. Tip: go to the convenience store where you could politely ask the staff to help you call for a cab. They were very happy to help. All in all, a pleasant experience with the friendly locals.
A grey daySo I was told during the weekend this place is bustling from everyone from Taipei coming to buy the best fish and seafood. Having said that, when I came around early afternoon, the weather was grey and the buildings are grey so atmospheric wise it was only so-so. Was interesting to look at the harbour though with the fishing boats. And there was a small windy park to fly kites too.

A shock, A shockThis could have been a major tourist attraction; unfortunately, it was one of the dirtiest places I have ever visited in my life..People simply threw trash everywhere, even when trash bins were right in front of them. I wonder if Taiwanese have any concept of cleanliness at all. I was elated to see such a wide expanse of beaches, but when I saw the debris and the trash, I really got ticked off. It's a shame that no one seemed to care. I would stay away from this place. It's not worth a visit. Hong Kong, which is only an hour or so away, has much cleaner beaches.
