Ambassador Theatres 國賓影城@淡水禮萊廣場 Review
Surprisingly, there are 2 movie theatres in Tamsui. One at New Square Mall and another here at Tan Shui Lilai Plaza. From the outside, you wouldn’t expect to find a small mall here. But inside Tan Shui Lilai Plaza, you can find Ambassador Theatres along with a few restaurants, a Luisa Coffee and a 7-Eleven.
Ticket prices will cost you NT$290 for adults, NT$260 for students and NT$240 for the matinee. The prices are pretty similar, if not a little higher than you would expect to pay in central Taipei for a movie.
Churro 3/5 NT$80
Since it’s not too common to find churros, it was churro time for me. Unfortunately it was overcooked and a little hard to eat. I was expecting crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. It was more like just crispy.
It was a lot of churro and not the cleanest thing to eat in a dark theatre.
As we were going to buy the standard ticket for NT$290, the cashier recommended we just buy the combo package that included a drink with out ticket for the same price of NT$290. That was really nice of them to make sure we got the best deal they had available.
The seats are very clean and feel like their brand new. Every 2 seats are coupled together so you’ll have an additional armrest along the outside of the seat. The armrests are pretty thick and well padded. As for a movie theatre, the experience was great.
I came here to watch Donnie Yen in Fat Dragon. The movie itself was entertaining and had a lot of great fight scenes. They made each kick and punch seem to have a very intense impact in Donnie’s “fat mode.” If you like a good martial arts movie, Fat Dragon is worth a watch!

Money In Taiwan
Tax Is Included In The Price
All displayed prices in Taiwan are the actual price. Tax is already included and for large purchases, tourists visiting Taiwan can get a 5% Taiwan VAT refund at the airport Tax Refund counter. Some shops offer this service too, but they will require your passport.
Taiwan Is Cash Only (For Most Small Shops)
The primary payment method for all transactions in Taiwan is cash. It’s very rare for small shops to take anything other than cash. It’s more common to see places accept the Taipei Metro Card as payment rather a credit card.
Supermarkets and convenience stores in Taiwan (7-Eleven, Family Mart) do not accept credit cards (at least not American credit cards). You can only make purchases by cash or by using your pre-loaded funds on your EasyCard.
