The white lighthouse built by British in 1883, after that rebuilt by Japan in 1918. Standing here can saw the whole Kaohsiung port, cargo ships often go through the lighthouse and out of the sea.

I am a big fan of lighthouse and would try to visit lighthouses during the visit. This lighthouse is nice but not too special. However, please be mindful that it requires a lot of stairs walking to reach it.

It is a bit tricky to find unless you are with a local, as you need to go over the harbour ferry ($25 each way) and then walk through the town. It's quite a climb up there, and day I went was very hot and...More

The lighthouse was located at the top of the hill. It glances the coastal of Qijin. But if may not suitable for elderly or people with disabilities as there were steps and slopes to climb before reaching the lighthouse.

The hike up is short, but during the summer where temperatures hit the high 30s celsius in the mid morning, you might want to reconsider. You have to park your bikes at the beginning of the slope up to the lighthouse. The views up there...More
