    Kaohsiung fish port

    by yatingchen Written Jan 5, 2008

    Favorite thing: 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.

    Love-River at night

    by yatingchen Written Jan 5, 2008

    Favorite thing: Love-River flows through Koahsiung's heart into sea. Because of industry pollution, once it was Koahsiung people's plain. However, now it's their pride.

    Its face in day and at night are very different. At night the river belongs to lovers. If you are so lucky and that don't need to stand in line, please just take boat for short sightseeing. The amazing landscape with breeze can melt your heart.

    Twin Pagodas

    by seagoingJLW Written Jan 16, 2003

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Visit the Dragon and Lion Pagodas. The dragon's throat is the entrance and the lion's mouth is the exit. This symbolizes turning bad luck to good fortune. Inside there are paintings of heaven and hell and of China's most obedient sons.

    Twin Pagodas.

    Night Markets

    by keeweechic Updated Dec 18, 2002

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fondest memory: One of my fondest memories was wandering around the city night markets. There were 3 of us on the first part of our tour. A Japanese gentleman who lived in Brazil and didn't speak much English (not that that mattered, we got around it) and a lovely Professor from Iowa University (who has remained a good friend of mine). We had no idea where we were going but we just left the hotel, first stopped for some dinner, then continued walking. We ended up wandering around night markets. The city at night was brightly lit with neons everywhere, some fairly suggestive ones at that :-).

  • Sun Bathing Paradise

    by vividvivian Written Oct 20, 2002

    Favorite thing: This time i go to Tainan (south of Taiwan) - Kao Shiung and Kenting.

    Kao Shiung looks more or less like Taipei city, just that Taipei city has more people. Kao Shiung is one of the busy cities in Taiwan where transportations never stops.

    Once you leave Kao Shiung and spend 2 hours to Kenting. You will totally the difference. Kenting is a nice place to tourist, it is one of the tourism spots where you can relax and have fun for your holidays.

    Fondest memory: Sun Shines and sea breeze. Stalls on the street at night, what a nice place to be.

    z_horse's General Tip

    by z_horse Written Aug 25, 2002

    Fondest memory: Kaoshiung is definitely a nice place because of the people there. Yafang is a real friendly gal we met in Kaoshiung. After our hotel check-in, we went hunting for food. We walked past an internet cafe and decided to go in and check our emails. It was there where Yafang started chatting with us. But what we did not expect was she said she was going to knock off from work soon and offered to bring us around the city! And so she became our guide, all the way till night. She definitely played a good host. TBC......
