Kaohsiung is a port city and this is one of the major river near the city center. Reminds me of the River Thames in London. The local people comes to the river at night for a cooling stroll along the river bank. There is a park area with stage and restaurant/bar night entertainment(band , singers, music). It is worth while... More

Have an evening ride on the solar-powered boat! You could see how colourful is the beauty of the river sides! The conductor of the boat explains how the river gets its name, the various buildings along the river as well as the peculiarity of the river area.

The wife and I strolled along and enjoyed one of the gondola rides. We had a blast. there was lots to look at and we could hold hands and feel safe with each other. in all honesty there may have been libations involved, but we found the Love river to be true to its name.

Nice walking and bicycle paths on both sides of the river. At night there are more people on the trails and a few street vendors set up selling or playing musical instruments. There is a Outback Steak House just off the path as well as other restaurants and open air bars.

During my first visit in 2006, I was invited to take a boat tour on this so-called Love river, and nearly puked into it, due to overwhelming smell of sewage. There was not much to do on its banks, either. But now, nine years later, this place is much better. Sure, the number and variety of eateries and coffee shops... More

Well, fancied a beer one afternoon and s friend recommended a cafe, right by the river close to the city centre, it's open air and faces the river and has a great selection of beers and soft drinks or coffee. There is also food available, but to be honest, did not try it. The staff don't speak much English, but... More

A famous river but it is not so special. There are a lot of tourists but you can't really see many local people walking along the river. If you have nothing to do, you can go there to have a walk.

How do I put it? They really need to figure out how to separate the sanitary sewer and storm sewer systems in the city. It appears the raw sewage ends up in the river. In a recent visit in hot July, the smell was a bit off putting and detracted from the walk along the river.

It was a long walk from the station to this love river. Nothing to see along the way. Torturous weather since it was summer(Not even at its hottest) It was basically like any other river with stores along it. I think it will be a great romantic place to go around spring or winter, but since it was summer, it... More

I always find places around the river is always romantic especially at night when the moon is reflected on the river , it's a good stroll after a heavy dinner at the night market . There are coffe shops and restaurants and some performance and it's open late . Easily accessible by MRT is a plus !
