I think the Pearl River looks more spectacular than this Love River but in some aspects, the skyline and river scene appears similar to that of the Funan River in Chengdu. I stayed at 85 Sky Tower Hotel and I woke up early in the morning at about 5 am to explore this river. The lighting at the banks of... More

Took a "Love River" Night Cruise as part of a tour package. Nothing terribly exciting or beautiful, but the colourful and diverse lights from the many buildings that line up on either side of the river did make the short cruise (20-30 min?) a pleasant one. May be a nice place to stroll along the river side (pavements and all)... More

This is one of those delightful little in-jokes cranked up at a community planning meeting. How can we draw people into the city? I know, let's call our rather typical little river the Love River and then people will come to it. Unlike some other cities though, they forgot to put anything of note on it. All in all, what's...

Nice little cruise down the river, but the skyline is not that great. I wish there old be stops on the cruise so we could enjoy the other side of e river

If you're looking for natural beauty this isn't it. However, at night, with the lights and night activity this makes the Love River a good Hang out spot

Nice view of the financial area of the city after sunset, but explanation just in Chinese Taiwanese and with an annoying audio problem. It wasn't easy to find the pier coming from MRT. Definitely not among the top attractions of the city

Most parts are under construction and walk the whole river. Nothing so interesting that I will recommend or visit again

Went there with high expectation after seeing the art work at the pier, navigated some construction work and got onto a boardwalk and noticed wedding photos being taken, love? The views were nice but not inspiring, soon the boardwalk became unlit and fizzled out into a waterlogged car park. Then we walked along a badly lit road and we saw... More

Like any river front city, Kaohsiung is a far more beautiful city, with the Love River running through it, than without. The name makes you think of romance but it is how you use the river, whether romantically or not, that will justify the name. To look at the Love River and say it doesn't look romantic just because of... More

Vino or a couple of cold ones, relax by the Love River with friends or a quite conversation. They have lighted up the river for you to enjoy and tons of sitting space. A lot of locals from young teens to grannies come to the river after the mid day heat.
