Walk along the river in the early afternoon is relaxing. The river and area is clean and beautiful. It is unexpectedly peaceful and quiet, probably a wonderful place to stroll for the lovers in the evening.

I read that not too long ago this river was a dumping ground for many of Kaohsiung's industries - terribly polluted. Today, one would never know of its blighted history. I have been here during both the daytime and at night - a great place to walk or just sit on a bench, have a meal and talk to the... More

Looked and felt cleaner since my last visit 2 years ago. There are so many scenic spots especially at night. The calm river surface reflecting colorful street lights looks awesome and spectacular. Enjoying local delicacies while strolling along the bank is certainly a must-try.

The good news is that the town council have cleaned up the awful pollution that once blighted this river and have also encouraged people to return. Our guide told us it is a great place for meetings between lovers - who need somewhere to go!! - hence the name. You can stroll or sit by the river or take one... More

So beautiful. Along the river are comfortable walking paths suitable for dating couples or just friends hanging out.

The river is prettiest at night and if you go on weekday evenings, there's less people. I use to live in Kaohsiung and one of my favorite things to do was buy a bento and a drink from one of the nearby restaurants and have dinner on the bench while listening to outdoor music.

The cruise (take one in the newer boats - less noise) offers a spectacular view of the riverfront in Kaohsiung. I don't remember the length of the ride, but do not remember it being a long drawn-out affair. The boat ride takes you out to the harbor, and then back inland up the river for a fair bit. You will...

Having read many reviews about this river, we expected much more. The river is quite nice for a peaceful stroll (pay attention to the various benches - some very creative ideas there), but we did not come across the many bars, cafes and restaurants we had read about. There are some al-fresco eating options close to where you board the... More

It was lovely to sit and enjoy a coffee in beautiful surrounds looking out over the river after a hectic day sightseeing, if you get there early enough you can a hire a boat or take the ferry along the river lit with beautiful fairy lights, loads of eateries and cafes in this area all with alfresco outdoor dining and...

My wife and I had a lovely time walking and talking by the river. We also took a little cruise on one of the boats, it wasn't anything too exciting but it was fun! It's a great quiet night out.
