Tianhou Temple at Qihou
Tianhou Temple at Qihou is dedicated to the goddess Matsu and therefore is also known locally as"Matsu Temple". The temple is heavily visited throughout the year, and in 1970 it was designated as a grade three historic site.  

A-Ten Mullet Roe Tourism Factory
The owner of Hu De Hui Company has been involved with the mullet roe processing business for more than 50 years, hence he decided to integrate the food business into the diverse family businesses. Through the development of Taiwanese economy, the traditional industry has gradually declined, the owner, Mr.Lin's love for passing down the heritage and Taiwanese tradition, has led him to expand the factory and created the "A-Ten" brand. With more professional and more hygienic conditions, A-Ten intends to deep root in Taiwan and expand to the global market, hoping to market "Taiwanese Mullet Roe" to the rest of the world, thereby making it the most representative fishery product of Taiwan.

The history of mullet roe is long and the production process is unique and interesting. The general public is able to learn the production process of mullet roe. The company has integrated the unique history of mullet roe into the excurision courses of elementary students. In addition to the light box display of interesting stories on mullet roe, there is also the detailed explanation on the production process film, after which there is also a prize giving pop quiz, in order to increase the studying interest of the students. For group tourists, we also offer actual DIY experience, so that people who are interested in participating in the production process of mullet roe will have an opportunity to try out their skills, and make their own DIY mullet roe, the finished goods will be sent to the visitors homes after they are air-dried. 

Pier-2Art Center
Conflict is a wonderful force here at Pier-2.
It used to be an old and forgotten warehouse sealed by history, and on it you would see every sign of economic development frozen by time. Its release and  re-birth were brought about by a group of artists who injected waves of creativity and inspiration, making the area stronger and better. Amid the conflict between old and new, vitality overflows.

Located at the sides of the pier is the artistic warehouse cluster. With a relentless flow of traffic and boats, never-ending flow or people and sea breeze, the vast sea and sky seem to symbolize unlimited and unrestrined thoughts. Amid the conflict between the land and the sea is the vastness of our bright futures.

The Operation Center of Pier-2 and the artists who showcased their pieces there have their own special dreams, but they come together to support one another, understand each other's vision and together, move towards the same goal. Despite the administrative and artistic conflict, both parties com together to become intimate partners and built the lasting image Pier-2 had left in everyone's heart.

British Consulate Residence at Takou
From a hilltop perch, the former British Consulate Residence building commands a panoramic view of Kaohsiung Harbor. The baroque-style brick compound is now used as a historical museum. It is also a popular site for taking wedding photos. 

Love River
Passing through the heart of downtown Kaohsiung, the park-lined Love River is a popular leisure and recreation spot. Take a boat tour to fully enjoy the river sights, which are especially lovely at night. You can also take in the view cycling along the river banks.
