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.

    Not worth it


    Decided to walk over from the red house as it looked close enough (1km walk). While the walk itself was fine, the pier was underwhelming. It’s not accessible via metro and honestly there’s nothing much to see unless you want to see 1 or 2 bars in a pop up container thing

    Bizarre pop up


    Worth making it along for sunset but find a spot away from the crowds of ‘instagrammers’ and noisy bars. The area next to the pier is a recent tourist trap / pop up with trendy music and overpriced pizza bars. The river isn’t pleasant up close either so enjoy the views before heading into town for twilight.

    Disappointment if you are pedestrian


    Not so easy to go if you are walking and not much to see. Better to stay on Di Hua Street 1st section to look after the old architecture and fancy shops

    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.
