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

You can take your scooter/ bicycle on the ferry for a quick 5-10min ride across to the Cijin island. Over there, theres a street with lots of snacks/ seafood restaurant if you're into snacking/ a good seafood feast. Otherwise, the beach is pretty nice too. If you're in for some exercise, you can cycle to the lighthouse or windmill park... More

We can view the river and downtown from the short ferry ride. Passengers on foot go upstairs and those on bikes go downstairs. The ferry takes us to Qijing Island, a touristy island, with roadside stalls, colorful rental bikes, and a beach front area.

The Ferry ride is not designed as an attration, but a mode of transportation between penisula islands. Qijing the destination is very busy and fun with seafood restaurants and street games. Although crowed, it is a very safe and family friendly area to visit. All you need is to pratice common sense tourist security measures. Even for an adult, make... More

Kaohsiung city was the first stop of our nine-day Taiwan tour for family of four. We initially did not plan to visit Qijin (旗津) island, but after many locals strong recommendations to take a ferry ride there, we decided to make a trip. It was Monday afternoon. After visit to Pier-2 Art Centre, we walked from Xiziwan Station (西子湾站) to... More

There are two ways to get to Qi Jing Island. One is over the water (ie, via ferry), the other is via underground tunnel. The ferry route is the more popular because its much more scenic (you can get a good view of Gushan as well as the Kaoshiung skyline) and also takes you to the heart of Qijing (ie,... More

Took the ferry after a LONG day of eating and enjoyed the fresh air, and time on the water. Pulled into Qijing and got off to walk along the main street, and look into the food stalls and game vendors. Played a few mini carnival games, had a grilled corn and shaved ice, and then went to look at the... More

It smells a bit, but overall the trip is great! The island is actually beautiful and this is the only way across, so it is well worth it!

Although line up for the ferry may look long and discouraging, there are so many ferries going back and forth that it goes by fast. Rent buts when you visit, we did and it's cheap and a fun way to get around the city. Go before 4pm, because the lighthouse closes around 4-430pm, unfortunately we missed it. Make sure when... More
