Ai He (Love River), Kaohsiung

(800+ reviews on the web)
Water Body Nature / Park
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. To visit Ai He (Love River) and other attractions in Kaohsiung, use our Kaohsiung trip itinerary planner.

  • 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.
  • Just river if you have time it's ok to walk around , recommend for couple not for group friend
  • Great place to visit at night. Very quiet and relaxing.
  • A long stretch of scenery views. Touristy spot. Sometimes there will be events happen along the stretch if you're lucky enough.
