Shrimp fishing is a popular local past time in Taipei. It's also a lot of fun. You can find indoor shrimp pools all over the city, but the best ones are in Shilin District. We frequent this one every couple of months. Live shrimp are dumped into a pool of cloudy water. You're given a rod, some chicken liver, and... More

Shrimps fishing is the best outing to spend for any ages. Everyone in my family enjoyed the experience especially when the shrimps were caught! You can order some food while shrimps fishing as it could take awhile to catch shrimps. It was a cooling weather and comfortable as we went on 1st Jan 2014 as the place was not warm.... More

Just as how fishing for fish is a guy thing, much more it is when fishing for shrimp. I mean, I could just scoop those shrimp with my bare hands instead of waiting the whole time before I can catch anything. By the time I get any (which is about 2 or 3 hours) and after skewing and barbequing it,... More

I visited this shrimp fishing place on a rainy afternoon after we had spent a few hours at the National Palace Museum. What a great way to pass a couple of hours when it was teaming with rain outside! I visited with my parents, wife, sister and 3 month old and we found it quite relaxing and comfortable. The girls...

Not very clean but nice to pass the time I suppose. I didn't like the set up too much. But hey to each their own!

For whatever reason, I may not fully understand, but this is definitely a guy thing. My husband had a blast doing this, even though we sat for 3 hours in our little plastic chairs and only caught maybe 3 shrimp. I mostly sat there bored, and dreading the bathroom--as it is quite disgusting, so be prepared. Luckily, there are snacks... More

We went to see shrimp fishing (in Waishuanghsi) just out of curiosity. It is not cheap though and you need time to spend to get a good bite. It cost NT$ 300 / per hour including rod and bites, NT$ 500 for 2 hours or NT$700 for 4 hours...If you are lucky, you can get 3-5 shrimp in a hour...and... More

I actually never found this one, my friend lived in Luzhou district. And for the life of me I can't tell you what street it was on. But if you do wander around Luzhou district, you can find them if you look closely. Just peer in and you will see a huge room with two pools, people sitting around with... More
