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 !

I loved the Love river. We rented a boat to go up and down the river. But my favorite thing was next to the ambassador hotel they had restaurants you could sit and enjoy dinner/a snack/or a beer along the river.

The Love River as it is called is a famous river in Kaohsiung. The River is actually very still as water comes from the Ocean and from the Mountains. It gets its name as one of the Chinese Characters in a signboard fell off and the rest of the words meant Love and ever since locals started referring the river... More

During the day nothing special actually, but at night time life moove on'. The tourists boats use LED light and bring color to the site. I recommand to go on weekend, you can bring little children's and grand parents too. You have some restaurants and cafe on sides with musicians and artists praying music. On day time there is nothing... More
