Travel Guide Intro
- Experience IHG Hotels in Kaohsiung
Kaohsiung, an “incredibly romantic city of love” according to the songs of various Taiwanese bands, is also a port city where clear water, white sands, blue skies, and green sea proliferate. Wherever you walk, your eyes will be treated to the charms of this azure port city, such as silver sands and green waves that ebb and flow with the tide, luxuriant green trees, and modern buildings with retro styles. Riding along the golden coastline, you can not only visit the Love Pier, a much-used movie location, you can also relax and enjoy the sunset and visit the Love River by boat, and enjoy your leisure time at Xizi Bay behind the National Sun Yat-sen University. You can also step in under the splendid display of the “Dome of Light”, and then climb the Tuntex Sky Tower to look over the whole city, or taste some delicious food at the Liuhe night market to round off your visit. As you explore, following the gentle voice of Axin, the incredible Kaohsiung will reveal itself before your eyes, one piece at a time.
A Very Romantic Port City
Kaohsiung is located at the foot of a mountain, facing the sea. Its main urban area is located on the flat coast to the west, while the eastern part is continuous mountains, with a large expanse of primitive forest and a backdrop of canyons. The Love River slowly winds its way through Gushan, Yancheng, Chienchin and other old urban areas, while providing the “Love City” Kaohsiung with an abundance of romantic settings, including the Valentine’s Viewing Platform in front of Martyry, Valentine’s Battlements beside Xizi Bay, and the sacred places of the Gulou District. Other places of interest include the Urban Spotlight, and the artistic Holy Rosary Church which characterizes the literary and arty Chienchin District. The Pier-2 Art Center and the Love Pier are also two destinations that must be visited in Yancheng District.
The coastal scenery in the old town will tempt you to while away an hour or two, as its variety of views are definitely worth exploring. Whether you are visiting Qishan Old Street and Mino for a tour of ancient relics, or exploring the Laonong Brook and the Valley of Love in search of a secluded spot among the natural beauty of mountain forests, this area will certainly not disappoint.
