I grown up in this city and witnessed the revolution of Love River. It was well known for its polluted and smelly water not long ago, but surprisingly, you are now seeing an astonishing and brand new Love River. I think local governments play a pivotal role in transforming a place where local residents were ashamed of into a famous... More

During a winter breezy night, it's an enjoyable experience to walk along the river bank. Though there was no impressive skyline and a bit smelly from the river.

With 25 minutes on board, the person will tell you the history in mandarin. But a tip is to go to love river after 4pm. Otherwise it would be very quiet. If you would like to have a cup of coffee beside the river, go for the cafe. The area will be bustling with activities during the weekend.

A night boat ride on the Solar-panel motor boats is very quite and brings you along Ai He. They will give you commentary on why it is called the Love River and takes you along the river and show you sights in the vicinity. There's also a huge sculpture with the word LOVE at the pier where you board the... More

Best to visit when dawn strikes with the beautiful night lights along the river for love. Pretty scenic walk with your love. Cooling weather walking in a park.

Expected to see couple strolling, birds chirping, something during a Sunday afternoon sunset Nada Dad tells me this river was polluted and smelly when he lived here for dozens of years. While its cleaned up now and no more stinky tofu smells. It can use a lot more sprucing up. Marketing at its best

Quite similar to our Singapore River, except it's much wider. Clean, with a few restaurants around, colourful lightings, peaceful and nice to walk in the evening when the weather is much cooler.

It's very brightly lit along the river and we didn't have much else to do in Kaohsiung at nighttime, so it was worth a visit. There are some very average musicians playing there... we could've skipped it and we wouldn't have minded.
