A small trading town in the 17th century, Kaohsiung now stands as a sprawling metropolis, its harbor representing the largest on the island.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Confucius Temple and Fo Guang Shan. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Lianchi (Lotus) Lake and Xiao Liu Qiu. Get out of town with these interesting Kaohsiung side-trips: Dapeng Bay National Scenic Area (in Donggang), Anping Fort (Anping gubao) (in Anping) and West Central District (Shennong Street & Hayashi Department Store). There's much more to do: ponder the world of politics at Kaohsiung Main Public Library, see the interesting displays at Takao Railway Museum, take in the awesome beauty at Caishan Natural Park, and contemplate the waterfront views at Ai He (Love River).
