Under $100 / Asia

Located in southern Taiwan, surrounded by South China Sea and Pintung County, Kaohsiung is a seaport city with vibrant history and attractions. With a bustling city to one side and sprawling seaside vistas to the other, Kaohsiung is a city of diverse interests.

 

Begin with a hearty American breakfast at Arkansas Diner — and by hearty, think tater-tot scrambles and biscuits. The atmosphere is casual, cozy and affordable, but most importantly, within walking distance of Love River.

 

After a filling breakfast, walk along the heart of Love River, taking in views of the city from the bridge while planning your next move. Stroll along the walking paths for some extra exercise and pop in the various cafés located along the bank. Get out on the water by boat or trek back into the heart of the city for more sightseeing.

 

Famous for its parks, the Tuntex Sky Tower is a focal point of the city and impressive skyscraper. Take in the view and shop around Kaohsiung’s local shops and markets.

 

Travelers often seek out Lotus Pond, Lianchi Tan Scenei area, Spring and Autumn Pavillions and the various stops around the pond for more history, natural beauty and scenery — free fun and exercise.

 

Shopping options in the city range from high-end shops to the Liuhe Night Market, a must visit. This bustling shopping hub is a quintessential Taiwan experience. Taste-test and shop street cuisine and pick up gifts for friends and family back home at this quirky market.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
