Full-day city tour with a local guide!

Kaohsiung is the second largest city in Taiwan, she was the host city for the 2009 World Games. Due to the regulating effects of the marine climate, Kaohsiung is generally sunny and enjoys pleasant weather year-round. Known as "Taiwan's Maritime Capital, " the city has worked hard in recent years to reform herself into a city of tourism, including through beautification of the urban landscapes.
Kaohsiung is home to several popular tourist attractions, including Lotus Pond, Moon World, Fo Guang Shan Buddha Museum, MLD Market, Love River and Lio Hur night market.


*Lotus Pond - Traditional religious experience
*Moon World - Rare bad land terrain

A Recent Review of this tour

Tom has been great: careful, patient, flexible. We were traveling with 2 kids (3 yrs / 4 mths), he adjusted the tour to their needs, and was always happy to help. As soon as he understood our interests he modified the tour adding special places such as Moon World and the "Bomb" temple close to Kaohsiung. He cared that we experienced local specialities like sugar apple and betel nuts (...ok, the lastone we didn't dare!). He helped us trying to sort things out with Air China, hotels and train tickets.
