Kaohsiung ©
A small trading town in the 17th century, Kaohsiung now stands as a sprawling metropolis, its harbor representing the largest on the island.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Fo Guang Shan Buddha Museum and Anping Tree House. Head to The Pier-2 Art Centre and Hayashi Department Storefor some retail therapy. Explore Kaohsiung's surroundings by going to Kenting National Park (in Hengchun), West Central District (Confucius Temple, Chihkan Tower (Fort Provintia), & more) and Chimei Museum (in Rende). There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Fo Guang Shan, browse the eclectic array of goods at Freedom Sunset Market, don't miss a visit to Dragon Tiger Tower, and admire the striking features of Guandi Temple.

To find photos, other places to visit, more things to do, and other tourist information, refer to the Kaohsiung trip tool .

If you are flying in from Malaysia, the closest major airports are Kaohsiung International Airport, Taichung Ching Chuang Kang Airport and Kinmen Airport. Expect a daytime high around 36°C in May, and nighttime lows around 29°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 15th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
