Tianliao Moon World


Tianliao Moon World is a tract of barren land between Chongde Village and Gutin Village of Tianliao District. It has a dreary and desolate beauty of desert and is famous for its similarity to the landscape of the Moon surface. This queer terrain is called "badlands" in geography an adverse landscape caused by the strong erosion of rain and streams over the years due to "rejuvenation" of the earth's crust. The Tianliao Moon World sits in the valley of a small tributary of Erren River and used to have a dam for sediment storage to store water in the rain season. The sight of it was called "yue-jing-nong-tang" (Farm Pond on the Moon). However, the dam (farm pond) has been washed away over approximately a decade of time with the continuous scour of rain. Today, nothing but total desolation is what is left there. Apart from the eye-catching Chinese-style "Lan-Yue-Lou" (Moon Take Multistory Building) standing in the proximity of the Moon World for visitors to rest and appreciate the sight, there are also

Rihyue Temple, Fongyue Temple, Nihuo Spring (fire on mud spring), peculiar scenery, and a camping area for visitors to go.

Love River Sightseeing Boat


Almost all big cities have a beautiful river passed by, this is especially true in Kaohsiung. Love River lies across Kaohsiung for times of sunrises and sunsets. Love River, known as Dagou River in Qing Dynasty, was renamed by Japanese as Takao River. The river was also called Kaohsiung Canal. After restoration of Taiwan, the riverbanks were beautified with greenery works and developed to be park areas, decorated with pillars chained with iron rope. The area becomes a romantic place for lovers to date with each other, therefore, the river was reputed as Love River. In order to celebrate his dear Madam Chiang's birthday, the late president Chiang Kai-Shek named it Renai River, however, local people are still used to call it Love River. The Love River has been a dirty river with odorous smell due to pollution of industrial and house drainage. It was ironically regarded as the ugliest landmark of Kaohsiung. Following years pollution control, the River rebuilds its beauty, with egrets flying over and fishes playing waves. On the banks, a number of parks and green lands were developed and constructed with a very long bicycle way. You may wander relaxedly on the pathways of the banks, admiring the pleasant landscape and enjoying the gentle touch of breeze.

At night, lights sparkle on Love River. Every day from 16:00-23:00, visitors can take the boats on the east and west coast to look at the romantic and charming sights of Love River. Then, you might like to enjoy drinking coffee at cafes of different moods, such as cafe literary and art squares over River Mambo and olden Love River. It is nice to enjoy the aromatic coffee and listen to the music with different moods and tempos, allowing the leisure of the harbor city to relax your body and soul.
