Dadaocheng Wharf 大稻埕碼頭

Anchor point


Located near the No. 5 Water Gate on the banks of the Tamsui River, Dadaocheng Wharf thrived in earlier years as an entrepot for trade along the river. Tea, cotton and silk textiles were among the main products bought and sold here, attracting trading companies from across the western world. Dadaocheng's fortunes as a trading center went into decline during the Japanese colonial era. In recent years, however, this area has experienced a revival as a tourism destination, bicycling spot, and departure point for boat tours along the Tamsui River.

    Morning walk


    This pier or wharf is along Tamsui river. It is now a connector along the river for many activities - walking, running, cyclying, tennis, exercise, etc.

    Tranquil walk amidst the city


    The vast river expanse separating Taipei from New Taipei City is a sight to behold. Along the river are pathways suitable for running or cycling and small food shops incentivize the casual passersby to take a moment and sit down.

    Something different....see the other/older side of Taipei


    We're lucky that we stayed in this neighborhood as we got to experience the older part of Taipei. The streets, stores took one back in time...something we sorely missed while traveling in major cities in Asia. Dadacheng Pier offers a nice view of the river and on clear evenings, sunset over the river (beautiful). There's also supposedly a ferry which takes you up north to Tamshui. the pier has been transformed into a more touristy place with food and beer stalls.

    Excellent place to rent a bike and cycle along Tamsui River


    You can rent a bike near here, or you can use an app like oBike and find a nearby one. The path is very flat, with lots of nature to see and places to sit. There are also some vending machines along the way if you get thirsty. Bring your camera!

    Historical location of a famous pier


    The pier used to be a busy river trading post. It is now a popular tourists spot. There are some food stalls next to the pier so you could enjoy the view with food and drinks (beers too). Some food stalls have rooftop seating so you could have your food and drinks on the rooftop while enjoying the river view.
