Occupying a special place in the hearts of locals, Ai He (Love River) plays an important role in the city's tourism, economy, and culture. Go on a solar-powered boat tour to observe the tidal river and enjoy the picturesque city scenery. You can also rent bikes from stands along the riverbank to explore the surrounding attractions, such as lively night markets and outdoor cafes with live music. The government has significantly improved the water quality over the past few years, but floodgates still must remain open during rainy season, which can send pollution into the river's lower stretch.

Ai He (Love River) Reviews
This used to be a stinky waterway in the city but now it turned into a nice, clean spot. When visiting Kaohsiung, coming to the river and taking the boat ride should be a must-do. It's relaxing... more »
Luck to be there during the lantern festival. Crowded but atmosphere was awesome. Night time will be good to stroll along the river more »
Good scenery, the wind blows nicely. Many benches, bridges. Good place to jog or run or cycling. Not noisy, great place for "me time". But unfortunately, no free wifi.
During the winter months, when the weather is not so dang hot, the promenade along the south bank of the Love River is really quite nice (especially at dusk, when everything is lit up). Highly recommended if you find yourself down here.
