There are metros available and buses. Not as backward as Hualien , as it is a city.
From HengChun, we took a bus to Zuoying which is the GT at Kaohsiung
Artsytown(The Pier 2 Arts Area)
The Pier 2 Arts Area is located at 1, Dayong Rd., in the Yancheng District of Kaohsiung City.) which is near No. 1 exit of Yenchengpu station of Orange line (O2) of KMRT. It takes about 5 minutes of walk on Da-Yong road south bound. From No. 2 exit of Hsitsuwan station of Orange line (O1) of KMRT, heading east on West Side Harbor Line Bike Path for about 2 minutes on foot, you will reach “Penlai Warehouse Cluster”.
2. Beautiful Station
indeed beautiful, just look see as u take the metro
It is at Formosa Boulevard Station . Check this link for the metro map
3. Central Park Shopping at YuZhu Street
The apparels are cheap and trendy, i prefer this to Wu Fen Pu . The style is more of Bugis Street style. Wu Fen Pu don’t really have bugis street clothes. I see alot of youngsters. When i mean cheap, i mean like tops for NTD 230 – 345 aka SGD10-15.
MRT Red Line R9
4. Cijin island
A lighthouse and fort on the island, named Cijin Lighthouse and Cihou Fort, dating back to the 19th Century provide great views of Kaohsiung’s skyline, especially as the sun sets over the ocean. Other worthwhile attractions include the YM Museum of Maritime Exploration and the old Tianhou Temple. We only had about 1.5-2hrs to spare. We walked around and just ate some chicken(refer to picture above). Nice scenery at the beach, but other than that, nothing much. Good for first time tourists though.
Get to Cijin Island by taking a ferry from the Gushan Ferry Pier. One-way tickets are very cheap, at around NTD$15 per person.
