Kaohsiung package Hotspots - 3.)Xizi Bay(Xiziwan)

Xizi Bay is perched on the sea at the western edge of Kaohsiung City, just southwest of Mt. Longevity, with the Qijin Peninsuna stretching southward. Its main feature is a swimming beach known for its clear blue water, the beauty of its sunsets, and its natural reef. The atmosphere and the scenery here change from morning to night; each time of the day has its special attraction, but the brilliant colors of the sunset are unparalleled in their beauty. The long breakwater here is the landmark of Xizi Bay, and basking in the sea breeze on the breakwater gives the most pleasant and comfortable sensation imaginable. These gaps in the railings are referred to as "Lovers' Caves" or "Carrot Pits", making Sizihwan Bay a tremendously romantic place for every Kaohsiung package couple visit.

The vessels both large and small scattered like stars on the surface of the sea are entertained by the intermittent sound of foghorns; and as the day darkens and the air of romance deepens, pairs of lovers stroll along the breakwater listening to the waves and watching the lights of fishing boats on the sea. From the parking lot at the entrance to the bay you can also get a good view of Kaohsiung Harbor. National Sun Yat-sen University is situated within the Xizi Bay Scenic Area, adding a bit more of a cultural flavor; here you will also find, in addition to the swimming beach, a salt-water aquarium, Seaside Park, and National Taiwan Democracy Memorial Hall . The swimming beach has fine, soft sand and a grove of stately coconut palms, filling the area with the flavor of the South Seas. In the summer this is a perfect place for enjoying the water, playing beach volleyball, and sunbathing, and in peak seasons the crowds are dense and the activities intense. Lounging under a palm tree and basking in the soft cool breeze as the sun goes down is an experience that lifts you out of the mundane world.

Kaohsiung package Hotspots - 4.)Love River Sightseeing Boat

Almost all big cities have a beautiful river passed by, this is specially true in Kaohsiung. Love River lies across Kaohsiung for times of sunrises and sunsets. Love River, known as Dagou River in Ching Dynasty, was renamed by Japanese as Takao River.

The river was also called Kaohsiung Canal. After restoration of Taiwan, the riverbanks were beautified with greenery works and developed to be park areas, decorated with pillars chained with iron rope. The area becomes a romantic place for lovers to date with each other, therefore, the river was reputed as Love River. It also becomes one of the most popular view points for each Kaohsiung package couple .

In order to celebrate his dear Madam Chiang's birthday, the late president Chiang Kai-Shek named it Ren'ai River, however, local people are still used to call it Love River. The Love River has been a dirty river with odorous smell due to pollution of industrial and house drainage. It was ironically regarded as the ugliest landmark of Kaohsiung. Following years' pollution control, the River rebuilds its beauty, with egrets flying over and fishes playing waves.

On the banks, a number of parks and green lands were developed and constructed with a very long bicycle way. You may wander relaxedly on the pathways of the banks, admiring the pleasant landscape and enjoying the gentle touch of breeze.

At night, lights sparkle on Love River. Everyday from 4:00-11:00, visitors can take the boats on the east and west coast to look at the romantic and charming sights of Love River. Then, you might like to enjoy drinking coffee at cafes of different moods, such as cafe literary and art squares over River Mambo and olden Love River. It is nice to enjoy the aromatic coffee and listen to the music with different moods and tempos, allowing the leisure of the harbor city to relax your body and soul.

Kaohsiung package Hotspots - 6.)Fisherman's Wharf, and Former Banana Warehouse

Fishermen's Wharf was created from a disused warehouse facility on a wharf at Port of Kaohsiung. In place of crates, visitors will find romantic cafes, a food court with specialty Taiwanese snack dishes, and pubs. The area is illuminated at night with colorful lights, adding a fantasy-like mood to the wharf's evening ambiance.

According to a history of the Port of Kaohsiung, the Former Banana Warehouse next to Fishermen's Wharf was used in earlier years to export bananas to Japan. It was expanded into a double-level facility in 1965 to accommodate a surge in banana exports at that time. In subsequent years, as the banana trade declined, the warehouse was closed until its reopening as the Sea View Terrace with views of the port traffic at the intersection of Kaohsiung's first and second harbor.

The Former Banana Warehouse located beside Fishermen's Wharf dates back to 1965. At that time, all of Taiwan's banana exports to Japan were shipped from Kaohsiung. At that time  
the bananas were stored in this a two-story warehouse, which was referred to as the Banana Canopy. As banana exports dropped off the Banana Canopy no longer served its purpose.  
Located at the intersection of Kaohsiung's first and second port channels, it offers good views of ships entering and exiting the harbor. The Harbor Bureau then renamed it the "Sea View Terrace". It is a great place for all Kaohsiung package visitors to watch the ships and relax by the ocean.
