Kaohsiung (高雄) is the largest city in the south of Taiwan and is an economic powerhouse thanks to the port which has brought riches to the area since the 17th Century. The perpetually sunny city is a wonderful place to visit with large museums, historic sites, temples, amazing night markets, and great food - especially seafood. The special municipality is a large one area-wise but never fear as it is connected by rail, high speed rail, a subway network, light rail network and buses. Whether you’re visiting for a few days or using the city as a stepping board for a vacation to the beach resorts further south, you’ll definitely have a great time whenever you visit this beautiful city.
