Lotus Lake is a must see! Gorgeous scenery and beautiful pagodas and temples. You could spend hours here if you have the time. The lake itself is man-made but there are a lot of fisherman located around the edges. Great sites for pictures.
There are also many shopping opportunities around the lake that allow for souvenirs to bring back home.

Kaohsiung is the second largest city in Taiwan and is on the southern end of the island. It may not be the big international hub like Taipei, but in my opinion it is cleaner, less crowded, with less traffic, and less pollution, even though it does have a lot of industry down here.
So it is a nicer city in many ways than Taipei, particular for living and being with family, and if you are a young lover, there is always the Love River to have a lunch picnic on the banks with your sweetheart. The people here are industrious and hard working, and many of the shops are open late. There are also a lot more indigenous Taiwanese people here, that are shorter and darker in appearance than the taller transplants who came over with the KMT from the mainland when Mao rose to power.

Unexpected pleasant surprises at this city that is located at the mouth of a major port. There are many, to name a few...Surprise 1: this fisherman city is second largest by population in Taiwan. Surprise2: very reasonably priced seafood! And a lot of it. Surprise3: confucius temples and churches both have prominent presence in the city.

its a big harbour city where you can do a lot of shopping. at least i did way back in the early 90's. got my first Adidas shoes and sony walkman. both of which are no more now but for the happy memories. i had a heard of a saying by my colleagues that 'made in japan' items were priced lesser than they would have cost in japan itself which made me wonder 'really??
