The Love River Kaohsiung is the focal point of the city, running from the South of the city up to the North. The river itself is stunning and peaceful. At one time it was very polluted, but the city council invested a lot of money and time cleaning it up. It is now super clean and the centre piece and charm of Kaohsiung. Apart from the beautiful scenery provided by the Love River Kaohsiung, it provides  miles of walkways and bike paths. Situated along the river banks are many cafes, bars, and restaurants. You can also water ski or take a ride on a boat along the Love River. Many evenings, musicians can be found playing to the crowds. There are so many attractions along the Lover River that visitors and locals alike never tire of it and return time after time.
