Kaohsiung at night - The Love River

The Love River () is a romantic place to go. We stoped here on the way home after trip to Lotus Lake.
You can enjoy the city view at night with a cup of coffee and listening to music. There is a few coffee shops in the park. Cultural events like concerts are also often held by the river.

The water scenery with a few bridge which change colors is really beautiful. You can also take a boat. The boat can take about 15 people up and down the river.

In the past the river flowed in wide channel, surrounded with farms. During Japanese occupation in 1895 the river was changed into canal to transport lumber.

The name of the river was originally Takao River but after pair of lovers committed suicide, the name became popular as Love River. It's the official name since 1972.

We also went to Kaohsiung harbour. The harbour was build in 1908 at the mouth of Love River. 
We also took a ferry to go to the other side which is much quick than drive. The place is very popular with a lot of street food especially seafood.

The city is really beautiful and worth visiting. Lonely Planet was right making it one of 10 best places to travel.
