Ai He (Love River), Kaohsiung

Categories: Bodies of Water, Nature & Parks
Inspirock Rating:
3.7/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web
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.

  • Not sure why this place is popular. Just a normal river in a city. We happened to dine at a veg restaurant next to the river. There wasnt a lot of lightings along the river, and didnt see any activity...  read more »
  • Two sides of Aihe are seaside park. At daytime, you could see the bustling tall buildings. At night time, you could see the colourful decorations on two side. No matter walking along the side or visit...  read more »
  • The river is not as cleaned as I would expect. Would be much better if the water is cleaner. I will not recommend this place. 
  • Highly recommended for runners (or couples)! The pavement along the river goes for miles and miles. I've done many 15 mile runs along this river, because it's the best place for a long run and is a nice break from the scooter filled streets. For people who want a relaxing walk, go to the downtown section of love river near fisherman's wharf and Pier-2 Art Park (another must see). Don't miss the Dragon Boat races around June on Love River during the Dragon Boat Festival! It's HOTT so bring plenty of water and an umbrella. But it's so worth it!
  • Very nice to walk along this river, especially, at night.
  • The area surrounding the river has a lot to offer. Great area to have a drink and just relax. Boat rides are also available. A must visit when in the area.
  • Love River has changed dramatically since i last visited as a child. My grandma lives a few minutes from this infamous river! I absolutely love the new and imporve Love river that goes along the canel and most nights there are tons of vendors along the Love River and it is amazing! So many things to do and see !
  • Worth to check it out. Especially when they got Chinese New Years Lantern Festival on with some food and light
