Harbor City

A small trading town in the 17th century, Kaohsiung now stands as a sprawling metropolis, its harbor representing the largest on the island. Historical attractions in Kaohsiung come in great variety, with Dutch colonial, Qing dynasty, and imperial Japanese buildings to find around the city, along with a number of more modern industrial buildings, converted into hip cafes and stylish restaurants. Night markets represent a good way to see contemporary Kaohsiung culture, with visitors and traders from across the region creating the atmosphere of an old port town. Make your own Kaohsiung vacation itinerary, with a little help from those that know the place like the back of their hands, by using our Taiwan trip itinerary maker.

Where to stay

Kaohsiung caters to a range of budgets and styles in the accommodations it provides for its guests. To keep things simple and easy, take a look at the options close to Formosa Boulevard, the station where the two metro lines intersect. To the north lies the main train station, and the area has been dotted with high-rise hotels, both standard and luxurious. Backpacker-friendly hostels are never too far away in this district, while a number of traditional guesthouses can be found in the surrounding residential areas. Atmospheric, and usually budget-friendly, they provide a good option to for those wanting a side of the city other than the ultra-modern one of the central area.
