Harbor City

A small trading town in the 17th century, Kaohsiung now stands as a sprawling metropolis, its harbor representing the largest on the island.
Venture out of the city with trips to Chimei Museum (in Rende) and MyTaiwanTour Travel Services (in Zhongzheng District). There's much more to do: head outdoors with Ai He (Love River), head off the coast to Cijin Island, examine the collection at Takao Railway Museum, and make a trip to The Dome of Light.
