A small trading town in the 17th century, Kaohsiung now stands as a sprawling metropolis, its harbor representing the largest on the island.
Get some historical perspective at Luermenma Temple and Anping Tree House. Step off the beaten path and head to National Museum of Taiwan Literature and Nankun Nidai Tianfu. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Kaohsiung: Zhen'antang Feihu General Temple (in Annan), West Central District (Chihkan Tower (Fort Provintia) & Guanzi Hill (Guan Zi Ling)) and Wan Jin Church (in Wanluan). There's lots more to do: get engrossed in the history at Fo Guang Shan Buddha Museum, view the masterpieces at The Pier-2 Art Centre, and head outdoors with Ai He (Love River).
