Cihou Lighthouse, Kaohsiung

(120+ reviews on the web)
Lighthouse
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.

  • 旗後燈塔位於高雄市旗津區旗后山,座落於旗後砲台的北方,是高雄港口的最高點處,城市與海灣美景風情盡收眼底。看著往來繁忙的船隻,欣賞著這八角塔狀的旗津燈塔及園區景色,這裡真的很值得推薦給來旗津玩的旅人喔!  more »
  • The flag must climb the Hill is close to the ferry port of Tsushima. Please note that it requires physical strength.

  • 旗津事各觀光勝地,還是喜歡非假日來這度過悠閒的下午,在旗津漫游,騎著腳踏車路亂亂晃,去燈塔上看著整個高雄港的好景色!  more »

  • It's ok to visit. Nothing so special other than the Lighthouse. The Lighthouse in the island is the best spot to see the whole area along with huge container ships passing through the Kaosiung port. If you want to see the hakka people-on fishing, please wander around the seaside. One con: The sand here is very dirty
  • If you enjoy elevated views, you should not miss this place. Not open at night though, what a pity.
  • It has nothing at all, it is best to rent bicycle from kaohsiung then use Google map, to cycle here then cycle back.
  • A lighthouse that's full of history, but you definitely want to bring a guide with you.
  • Steep slope to the light house and had to climb multiple flights of stairs, probably not suitable for a elderly to tag along. The view is definitely worth the effort to get to the top and on the way you can enjoy the scenic view of the surrounding.
