Kaohsiung is in the southern part of Taiwan, and it’s currently the third most populous city with approximately 2.77 million people.
Kaohsiung has an international airport and to get around the city you can take the public bus, MRT, the Mass Rapid Transit or Ubikes. Since the city is more spaced out, if you have the option, get an scooter, it will make your life easier.
For people who like less busy cities, Kaohsiung is a great option! There’s a lot of nature around and a beach you can reach by a short MRT ride.
As the largest municipality in Taiwan, the city has many newly built leisure areas/parks. These include parks, zoos, pavilions and a number of wharfs and piers, like the Central Park, Siaogangshan Skywalk Park, Fo Guang Shan, the Dragon and Tiger Pagodas, the Love Pier, Singuang Ferry Wharf and Kaohsiung Fisherman’s Wharf.
Kaohsiung is great for people who are looking for a more laid back vibe and a more immersive experience of the Taiwanese culture in a city with less foreigners.
