Hamasen of Kaohsiung Part 1

In Kaohsiung, it is a common sight to see the ports busier than the roads. Therefore, it makes more sense to explore Kaohsiung by boat.  Be taken back in time by the former British consulate with its old colonial-style architecture. This is a good way to discover Kaohsiung’s 100 years of history and its foreign trade activities. This destination also gives one the perfect opportunity to experience life of an ex-British Consul.

Stroll through the old rail tracks and learn about the shipping business of the old days. Look out for the weary locomotive which had slogged its youth.

Kaohsiung does not fail to delight travellers with her rejuvenated life. At the foot of Gushan sits the hundred-year-old Wude Hall. Abandoned, it was revitalized for the original purpose for which it was designed – as an ancient monument and martial arts centre. Be awed by its grand architectural beauty, and soak up the goodness of a Kendo practice – strength, endurance and overall fitness, all under a Chinese gabled roof. After a good sweat out, give yourself a pat on the back and reward yourself with local delicacies!

Noticeably, getting around in Kaohsiung is easier by boat than car.  It is just a short wait of 5-7 minutes for a ferry from Gushan to Cijin. If you have a motorbike, take it on the ferry. Let it bring you through Cijin Lighthouse, Cihou Fort and Cijin Tianhou Temple. You can also check out the scenery on a bicycle adventure, fly a kite and dance to a cha-cha tune.
