Cihou Lighthouse, Kaohsiung

(3.9/5 based on 120+ 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.

  • 壽山、高雄市與高雄港,在這裡居高臨下,可以一次看足,登高望遠,看著商船魚貫進出,十足的海港風情,若是傍晚造訪又有落日相伴,絕對令人終身難忘,展示館整修中,有點小遺憾,整體而言,與她的鄰居(旗后砲台)相比,真是天差地別,現役的古蹟燈塔,有人管理就是不一樣。  more »
  • 旗津燈塔現在已被列為了三級古績。到達燈塔要有點腳力,因為需要爬上一段路,不過走上去看到高雄港灣的風情和繁忙的船隻航行,一切都是值得。  more »
  • 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。  more »
