We took the ferry from Gushan Pier to Qijin Island for a day trip to visit the attractions and to eat at the seafood eateries, which are located mainly at the northern end of the island. Some of the noteworthy attractions on the island include the lighthouse, fort and black sand beach. Miaoqian Road has many food stalls and restaurants... More

the view is spectacular with the bridge and small buildings around the river. for travelers who never ride a ferry to cross a river, this would be exciting. You need to get your ticket to cross the river. The ferry takes about 5 minutes ride across the river. After getting down from the ferry, you can visit famous places by... More

We went to Qijin by recommendation and no regrets for taking time to visit the island. Ferry to the island is very cheap at 15Nt and the frequency of ferry service is high so we do not have to wait long despite the long queue. There are many roadside stalls selling the usual tourists souvenirs and street foods, a good... More

The ferry is really cheap ($NT15) and only takes about 5-10 mins to the island. On the way you get to see the skyline of Kaohsiung which is nice. It's a pretty hectic very because there are so many people and they are so frequent but it does its job. The area around the ferry terminal isn't anything special just... More

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.

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
