hkskyline's 2008 - KAOHSIUNG, TAIWAN #2

Kaohsiung is a major port city, and here is a view towards the west with the open ocean in the background.



A lot of port and industrial facilities along the waterfront. There are some parks, but not many. Hope there'll be more in this part of town in the future.









The waterfront areas shown here are more touristy. They've done a decent job making the area friendly to locals and visitors alike. Kaohsiung isn't a big skyscraper city, but its urban cityscape is quite dense with a lot of buildings packed block after block.






Simcity!















You'll see a huge expanse of development spreading north and east from the waterfront. Too bad there was smog that day. At least it was sunny. Kaohsiung was the only place where I had continuous decent weather during my Taiwan trip.

















The waterfront in the backdrop is a big tourist area, being named along the lines of "Love Pier". That pier sign draws quite a lot of photographers.





























Welcome to Kaohsiung!

Great Skyline with modern buildings and major avenues and is also good to see the development with the presence of green areas and gardens and several streets despite the wooded development.
