Kaohsiung Port Taiwan
Kaohsiung Port is the largest harbor in Taiwan and is the main port for container cargo ships coming into Taiwan. This beautiful port is located across from Kaohsiung City in Southern Taiwan. It is surrounded by 6 different districts, including Cijin Island. This is the location of the ferry service that takes people back and forth to the island. Since the land bridge was dismantled in 1975, the ferry service has been the way to travel back and forth. By breaking the land bridge between Siaogang and Cijin, the port was able to be expanded for the shipping industry. This is an extremely busy port, with many ships in port at any one time. The Kaohsiung Port is an important port, and the whole economy of Taiwan depends on this vital link to the outside world.
On the southern side of the Kaohsiung Port, there is a park and museum telling the history of the area. This is also the location of the shipping terminal 6. The park is enjoyed by the locals and the younger generation is able to see the colorful history of the Kaohsiung Port. What this generation knows as the Kaohsiung Port, began as a small sleepy fishing village during the Ming Dynasty. Latter when the Dutch had control, they began to develop the harbor area. Taiwan has a colorful history of Dynasties and foreign governments. This little museum is one of the many gems of Taiwan. It is definitely an interesting place to visit.
