Welcome to Kaohsiung Hotel & Information
Kaohsiung is Taiwan's second largest city and its largest port, situated at the southwestern part of Taiwan. By its northeastern side there stand the Central Mountain Range. Yushan Mountain Range and Alishan Mountain Range. The city has high concentrations of heavy industry, including steel production, shipbuilding and other exports.Unlike Taipei, Kaohsiung is a planned city with wide streets and slightly less traffic congestion than the capital. In recent years the city has made great strides in transforming itself from a primarily industrial city into a modern Asian metropolis, and several areas of the city, such as along the banks of the River Ai (Love River), have benefited from major beautification projects under the tenure of former mayor Frank Hsieh. The city is often known as Taiwan's "Harbour Capital" because of its close connection and heavy reliance on the ocean and maritime transportation.
