The station itself is small but located in picturesque surroundings, now that an artfully designed bridge had been constructed right beside it. At night, coloured lights span the bridge making it even mkre beautiful. During holidays, long lines form to get a ride on the ferry but do not be intimidated, because the wait is not long since the ferries... More

Get across the harbor for only 15 $NT. The ferry terminal is a short walk from KMRT subway. The ferries run every 10 minutes, so no waiting. Lands on the island near all the shops and food stalls, and a short walk to the beach.

The best and only public transport to get to Cijin Island. The trip was a very nice and relaxing trip.

For those not renting or driving their own car, this is the only public transport option to visit Cijin island. The ferry trip takes only 10 min and cost only 50 US cents in NT. There are two ferries coming back and forth so around 10min wait if u just missed the previous ride. As for safety goes, one simply... More

Nice trip but Nothing special. It's nice to see the most famous building of Kaoshiung by the lake, expecially in the night.

We've arrived in Qijin in afternoon. Before using ferry we were offered at the subway exit to rent bicycles or scooters. When asked whether we can rent on the island, we were told that it'd be a expensive there. Still we decided to rent from the island. On arrival, however, we discovered that we can not rent scooters as they... More

This is definitely a good place for family. You can enjoy delicious seafood, nice beach and there is a light house which you can visit. Your kid will enjoy the beach for sure. If you do not have bicycle, you may rent one over there, there are few bicycle shops provide bike rental service with reasonable price. Beach is fine,... More

There are lots of things to see at cijin you will need a bike scooter or something so you can ride around and enjoy the sights! I recommend bikes bc they are easier to park. There are tons... More

Yes you can take a taxi but why not ride the ferry and enjoy the 10 minute ride. Affordable attraction that deposits you in the midst of a bustling, friendly port city. Of course you can rent a rickshaw or bicycle but you miss a lot by not walking. Tons of places to eat and shop.

For a mere NT15 (about 50cents USD), the 5 minutes ferry ride will take you to QiJing Island, where you can spend an afternoon walking the area, as well as visiting the many food stalls. Once you are onboard, walk up stairs and go to the rear of the boat. Quickly snap a few pictures with friends and family as... More
