Ai He (Love River), Kaohsiung

3.8
#2 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.

  • There's a lot of restaurants on both sides. It's nice to go for a walk on the side of the river. There's a very tasty, but seasonal, chestnut in the vicinity of Love.

  • The river of the city has been ignored largely urban. You can take 20-minute tours with small electric boats, where in Chinese on the Heron, as well as the fact, that flows into the sea advised ;-). It is recommended to take these trips after dusk – this is romantic. The romance is then probably due to the fact, that you can no longer see parts of ugly Bank building and the construction sites. Recommendation: let fail.

  • 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.
  • Took boat around the river. Romantic place. Drinking stalls at the side of river.
  • More impressive late afternoon or night. Otherwise fairly average
  • 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
