Symbol of Tamsui

TAMSUI * TAIWAN
Originally settled by the Ketagalan aborigines, the location was called Hoba, meaning "stream's mouth". Hoba was loaned into Taiwanese as H?·-bé. Historical records in English may refer to the place as "Hobe". The Spanish arrived in the 17th century and called this place Casidor and the Danshui river Kimalon.
