Today’s Kaohsiung has largely been transformed from grim industrial warrens into a modern urban landscape of shiny cafes, wide streets, river- and harbour-side parks, mass public transit, bicycle lanes, and cultural venues that have embraced, rather than shunned, the manufacturing past. There are also two swimming beaches within the city area, and 1000 hectares of almost-pristine forest right on its doorstep. If there’s a vibe to Kaohsiung, it’s ‘on-the-move, but still chillin’ out’.
