Go jogging or hiking among families of cheeky monkeys at Caishan Natural Park. Some call this spot the "monkey mountain" because of the big population of monkeys that roam the forest. As you explore the park, you'll almost certainly come across some of the playful primates, but approach them carefully, as they tend to snatch valuable objects from careless hikers. Other than looking out for animals, you can admire the luscious plants and trees found in this park, refreshing yourself with a drink from the many stalls along the path. After successfully climbing, enjoy the view of the city from the top of the mountain. Put Caishan Natural Park on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Kaohsiung trip maker app.
