Ai He (Love River), Kaohsiung

3.8
#1 of 26 in Parks in Kaohsiung
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.

    Hear up to dusk, was aboard a cruise ship. Cruise ship powered only by solar energy in the water near the distance and feel cool in the scorching heat. Previously quite appreciated in the wastewater pollution is now the thing but had to spend time relaxing cruise.

    Nice place to go to at night as the river and it's surrounding lights up. You can enjoy a dessert and listen as someone sings live. Of course this is not Venice, and if you expect to experience the same atmosphere as Venice then you will be disappointed.

    For a love river, it's not too romantic. More just a river with some nice surroundings. They do have some gondolas, but don't expect Venice.
