Tamshui Sampan Boat

Tags: craft | fishing boat

Tamshui River was once the only river in Taiwan with inland river shipping. Land transportation wasn't as convenient in those days; as a result shipping on the Tamshui River flourished. The Tamshui Sampan Boat is still being used as fishing boats by fishermen today.
