I traveled to Kaohsiung, the second largest city in Taiwan for five days and four nights in the middle of September. I was impressed by Taiwan when I visited Taipei at the end of April, and I revisited Taiwan in less than a half year. I had some difficulties in gathering information compared to Taipei, but I found there were lots of things to do in Kaohsiung as well. In this article, I will write about night view around 85 Sky Tower and Liuhe Night Market as part of Day 1.

Following the previous post, I will take night photos around 85 Sky Tower.
Night View at Singuang Ferry Wharf and Kaohsiung Exhibition Center
First, Singuang Ferry Wharf.
There is a mini park at Singuang Ferry Wharf.
There are also several artistic objects.
From here, I took photos around Kaohsiung Exhibition Center.
Entrance of Kaohsiung Exhibition Center.
With 85 Sky Tower.
Night View at Kaohsiung Public Library
I revisited Kaohsiung Public Library.
The library was light up in the evening.
There was a restaurant on the first floor.
Then, I will go back to Formosa Boulevard station from Sanduo Shopping District station. The following photo was taken around Sanduo Shopping District station.
Liuhe Night Market
After I got off at Formosa Boulevard station, I stopped by Liuhe Night Market, the largest night market in Kaohsiung city.
Just after I entered the entrance of Liuhe Night Market, there was a stall selling papaya milk juice and I bought it.
Street was full of life.
I had seafood congee.
Here are snaps with a medium telephoto macro lens. To begin with, seafood.
Then, I returned to the hotel and the first day of my Taiwan Kaohsiung trip was over.
That’s it for the article about night view around 85 Sky Tower and Liuhe Night Market as part of Day 1 of my Taiwan Kaohsiung trip.
I tried to research best spots to take night photos around 85 Sky Tower before the trip, but I couldn’t get enough information. However, I presume around Singuang Ferry Wharf and Kaohsiung Exhibition Center is one of the ideal locations 🙂
Regarding Liuhe Night Market, it was moderately crowded with lively atmosphere, but not so congested to prevent passersby from walking. Speaking of night market in Taiwan, I visited Tonghua Night Market when I traveled to Taipei in April. If you are interested in it, please see the following link.
In the next article, I will write about Cijin island as part of Day 2.
