Kaohsiung is a massive port city in southern Taiwan. It’s home to many skyscrapers, such as the 248m-tall Tuntex Sky Tower, and is known for its diversity of parks. Its focal point is the Love River, with walking paths, restaurants and cafes along its banks, and cruise boats navigating its waters.

Shopping options range from high-end malls to the Liuhe and Ruifeng night markets that are fantastic for bargain buys. Kaohsiung has been rated as one of the Top 10 cities to visit in 2018 by the renowned publication ‘Lonely Planet’.

The article says, “A massive arts centre and 100,000 sqm cultural and music complex, complete with wave-lapped walkways and a night market, is emerging on Kaohsiung’s balmy harbourfront – Taiwan’s showcase for experimental architecture from around the world. Adding to this will be a spectacular cruise terminal, for those favouring an Odyssean approach to the port city. Hikers can view the Taiwan Strait from the new 88m ‘Eye of the Mountain’ skywalk, a reminder that water is ever-present. Kaohsiung is surging with possibilities: visit before the world gets wind of it.”
