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

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

Go to Cijin from Gushan (Kaoshiung), only take 10 minutes. As you arrived at Cijin, you can take a rickshaw trip for NTD 200/ 1 round (15 minutes), rent a bike (NTD 100 for unlimited time), or a tandem 4-cycle (available for 4 persons). I recommend you to rent a bike, so you can explore the adjacent area easily (and... 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
