Cihou Lighthouse, Kaohsiung

(3.9/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
The Baroque-style Cihou Lighthouse affords panoramic views of the Port of Kaohsiung, from high on Chihou Mountain. The original structure was built in 1883 using Chinese-style red brick, but was renovated and rebuilt during the Japanese occupation, creating the structure you see today. The lighthouse was made a Class 3 Building of Historical Interest in 1985, and soon after was opened to the public, with the tower itself being accessible. Climb to the top of the lighthouse, where the new level-four rotary lens light is housed, and take in the wide-ranging views of the city and the ocean. Make Cihou Lighthouse a part of your Kaohsiung vacation plans using our Kaohsiung trip itinerary planner.

  • 旗後燈塔位在旗津北端的小山丘上,白色的燈塔雖然不高,但是居高臨下,可以盡覽整個高雄港、旗津、旗津外海風光。坐在這裡吹海風、看風景,非常舒服。從旗津街上要爬一小段山坡才能到,建議秋冬前來,比較不熱。 
  • 燈塔位於山上面 行到上去除左可以望到高雄市區同旗津既景色 仲可以望到大海 加埋個燈塔 好有海岸邊緣既感覺 
  • The path to the Cijin peninsula drive is a little triggy! The parking lot search begins before the ascent to the Fort and lighthouse. One is up and the gates eventually are verschlosssen, it is of course disappointed. At the gate then also a letter only in Chinese, which obviously informs about the reason of the closure!
