KAOHSIUNG, TAIWAN:
SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 20 — 9am – 5pm

Kaohsiung, Taiwan’s second largest and its largest port — offers visitors a blend of ancient and modern culture. The architecture ranges from atmospheric temples and monasteries to soaring commercial skyscrapers and gleaming malls topped with Ferris wheels, and the city resonates with funky boutiques, colorful metro stations and modern galleries. You can stroll along Kaohsiung’s impressive harbor, one of the largest container ports in the world; walk or cycle around scenic Lotus Lake, with its Chinese pagodas; or sit at a bankside café on the Love River. Farther afield, visitors wishing to beat the city bustle can explore Taiwan’s history with a visit to Chikan Tower & Koxigna Shrine or learn about local religious traditions at Fokuangshan Monastery.
