Kaohsiung fish port
Kaohsiung is big harbour and has individul fishing and business ports.
Fishing port stays all kinds of boats and what can catch your eyes may be big ones.
To catch big & high-valued fish fishermen work on ocean for several months. They use big net to transport fish from boat to land. Fish hills on ground are picked up quick by labors into big bags. Bags in truck go directly to fish can factory.
Cheng Ching Lake
Though nothing of great note to your typical tourist, Cheng Ching Lake is a rare green spot in an otherwise gray city. It is also a pretty nice place to get away from the traffic/smog/congestion of Kaohsiung.
And conveniently enough, its located just a few minutes from where I live in Kaohsiung... (Just across the lake in this picture....)
Chijin Beach Scenery (chinese: ºX¬z·´º°Ï)
It has Matsu Temple, dedicated to Matsu; Chijin sea bathing with clear water and fine sands; the long-in-time Chijin lighthouse; the twenty-five-lady graveyard built, who died in the shipwreck. Moreover, there are fresh and delicious seafoods, especially the roasted crabs and squids; the reactionary-style three-wheeled pedicabs for sightseeing offer the tourists an unforgettable experience.
Kaohsiung--The city of lights
"--Kaohsiung and some information--"
Well today I got a monthly magazine (f.y.l. south), a free magazine focused one local information like pubbing, restaurants, upcoming events..., and I think I could use it as a ressource to put up some monthly information on my VT pages so that if people are coming here you might be able to find out some up-to-date information/events and find a good stay here. I'll find my time to update the information on my pages or you can also go to the website for more information as well. =) http://www.taiwanfun.com/south/kaoping/index.htm
"Back to school"
I like the people here, though the food in Taichung is far better than that in Kaohsiung. I like the nice bus stop here, that's what we don't have in Taichung.
So much more to be discovered, so little time.....
Anyways, have a good stay!
"New place; new home"
