I wouldn‘t expect everyone to find this fort interesting, but for history buffs like myself, it was a nice addition to my tour of historical sites. It takes understanding of the background knowledge to fully appreciate the value of this place

Tamsui / Bali District
The enchanting Tamsui Old Street boasts the most
beautiful Fisherman’s Wharf sunset of Taiwan. There
are also well-complimented delectable snacks such as
Ah Gei (bean curd) and fish ball, etc. On Bali left
bank, there is the Ferry Old Street and Wazihwei
Nature Reserve. It is relaxing and comfortable whether
by strolling or cruising through on a bike. Besides
the bustling business district, Tamsui is also full of
