Touring alongside rivers is becoming more popular among tourists visiting Taipei. Now there is a new event for people who enjoy recreational activities both in and around rivers every Saturday between now and August 26th: "Sounds from the River" music fiesta, which is organized by Department of Information and Tourism, Taipei City Government.

The highlight of the "Sounds from the River" is the "Valentine's Day at Dadaocheng" on the 26th of August. There will be a live concert on that day as well as a fireworks show around the pier.

Dadaocheng area is famous for its culture and delicious foods. Just going on a stroll in the old neighborhood will enable you to discover many "hidden" surprises. Try the traditional squid broth and fish ball soup, or have the pork mince rice with spare rib soup under the shade at the courtyard of the historic Cisheng Temple. Of course, a meal isn't complete without finishing with a soothing dessert and there are plenty of choices in this amazing area.

Dadaocheng was the trading center of Taipei, many goods were and still are traded here from the pier including dried groceries, spices, steamer baskets, bamboo baskets to fabrics & curtains. A large number of the stores that opened during the peak trading period are still trading now;  representing the history of a growing city.

Come and stop by Tamshui River and Keelung River, watch the sunset & city lights from the river bank. Where else can you find such a place to enjoy beautiful views while listening to beautiful melodies, only at "Sounds from the River"!
