Dadaocheng was originally settled by Pingpu people that migrated there after a fierce fight with settlers in Mengjia (current day Wanhua District) from Tongan in Fujian Province. Over the years, Dadaocheng developed with shops and homes rising up along the Tamsui River. After Tamsui Port opened, Dadaocheng became the main entrepot in Taipei under the administration of Liu Ming-chuan. Yanping North Road and Guide Street were at the center of commercial activity in the district, and tea and cloth were the main items traded during this colorful and memorable time of years past in Dadaocheng.

In recent years, Dadaocheng Wharf has hosted major fireworks festivals. There is also a bikeway by the wharf for riverside cycling in scenic and historic Dadaocheng.
