    Also, if you're going to 淡水, and have a bit of budget, should go up the staircase on your right to 淡水紅樓. It's a restaurant that serves good food. A little on the high side, but still cheaper than Singapore. Their 醉草蝦 super nice. Worth every cent.

    Try walking from the railway station to the waterfall. You'll enjoy it more. Very nice scenary along the way. As for public transport, I don't think so. There's only the 106 highway along the way, but I didn't see any buses commuting. There may be taxis, but not worth it IMO. All of the tourist to the waterfall use their 2 legs.

    Yes, if you know how to communicate in Hokkien, it will be very fun. I enjoyed chit chatting with the old folks there. They are the friendly lot and have lived along the railway from young. Told me a lot of stories about the place.

    Plan your time. It's worth the walk.

    Also, even if you alight along the road, you'll still need to walk in about 1-2 km to the waterfall site. There's no direct road to the waterfall!
