Sunset at Dadaucheng Wharf in Taipei

Dadaocheng Wharf thrived in earlier years as an entrepot for trade along the Tamsui River to downtown Taipei. 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 when the Ports of Tamsui and Keelung were built for larger vessels. 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. (from City of Taipei)

    Thank you for these beautiful photos. These are so different from the Dadaocheng I used to know. I will go to search these scenic spots on my next trip to Taiwan.
