we take a boat ride in the evening after out from the night market nearby and it is very romantic to ride on the boat with such historic housings and buildings at both sides of the river. The boat tour leader did explanation about the history of the building at both side along the love river.

This part of Kaohsiung used to be bustling with activities. However, it has since become an "old" area. The way the authorities tried to salvage this place was to develop the Love River, with bridges lit with bright lights and with water crafts to transport tourists. The effort is commendable but it is really not worth one's time to spend... More

We ride a gondola serenaded by their gondola man/singer. Our gondola was empty so its only for us. Yay! The view was beautiful, all the light lit up. Very romantic and beautiful. You can do a lot of jogging around this area because the river stretch quite far

Not a lot to do other than walk along the river. It is nice to be able to see the buildings and bridges lit up at night. You can take gondola rides, but river smells a bit so I would not recommend it.

We picked the cruise from the Pier with a structure with the word LOVE. The cruise came with a live commentary depicting the sights along the journey in addition to a brief summary of how the river was originally named and attempts over the years to clean it up. It lasted a little over 25 minutes and was interesting.

We pretty much passed by the river on the way to other sites. Just went down for a few minutes to take a few photos. Nice story behind how they were able to derive its name and how they cleaned the river's pollution. No need to include in itinerary, just a drive by will do! Not unless you want to... More

Kaoshiung Love River is just one of Taiwan's main (landmarks). The walk along the bank was relaxing and "romantic". Our tour guide said that the river was very polluted before. The City Government has helped to improve water quality. I love the view of the river.

Kaohsiung Love River is just one of Taiwan's (Kaohsiung) landmarks. Although there is nil padlocks nor chain-link along the riverside, the walk along the bank was relaxing and "romantic" (despite I was with my same gender friends). Heard from friends that this river used to be severely heavily polluted with bad smell, clean up efforts and water quality monitoring programme... More
