Tour in Kaohsiung City
A thriving international metropolis at the southern tip of Taiwan, Kaohsiung was the host city for the 2009 World Games. Due to the regulating effects of the marine climate, Kaohsiung is generally sunny and enjoys pleasant weather year-round. Known as "Taiwan's Maritime Capital," the city has worked hard in recent years to develop its tourism industry, including through beautification of the urban landscape.

Here are some of Kaohsiung's best attractions:

Cheng Ching Lake - located in Kaohsiung County’s Niaosong Township, Cheng Ching is larger than all other lakes in the Kaohsiung area. Cheng Ching Lake was originally built to serve as a water reservoir for industrial use. Cheng Ching Lake’s surface covers an area of over 300 hectares. For its peaceful ambience Cheng Ching Lake is also called the ‘West Lake of Taiwan’. The most famous attraction offered by the lake if Bridge of Nine Turns, which was built in 1960 and true to its name the bridge, running 230 mt long with a width of 2.5 mt, has nine turns.
Spring & Autumn Pavilions –which are a Taoist temple complex situated at the southwest part of Lotus Lake. The two pavilions stand on the lake in a zigzag shaped above-water walkway (Bridge of Nine Turns). The Spring and Autumn Pavilions were completed in 1951. In front of the pavilions is a statue of Kuanyin, the Goddess of Mercy, riding a dragon. According to legend, Kuanyin appeared above the clouds riding on a dragon, signifying that believers must erect an image depicting this event between "pavilions of summer and autumn": The present-day structures are a result of this vision.
The Xizi Bay-It is perched on the sea at the western edge of the city, just southwest of Mt Shou (Shoushan), with the Chijin Peninsula stretching southward. The bay's main feature is a swimming beach known for its crystal clear blue water, the beauty of its sunsets and its natural reef. The atmosphere and the scenery changes from morning to night time with each moment of the day have its special attraction.
