Voice of Travelers to Kaohsiung

Romantic night ride in Kaohsiung

My fiance and I went to Kaohsiung to have some time alone. We traveled by Air Busan on an economy ticket. The cabin was clean and well maintained. The flight attendants were so delightful. The most romantic thing in Kaohsiung was a 40-minute boat ride at Ai He (Love River). The night view Kaohsiung from the boat was so beautiful and the music playing by the river banks was so calming. We also crossed the lovers' bridge. At this Kaohsiung bridge, I went down on my knees and popped the question. We also went for a walk and a banana boat ride at the beautiful Nanwan beach. I never thought Kaohsiung was that attractive. We will certainly be back soon.

Self- discovery in Kaohsiung

My friend suggested that we should have some time in Kaohsiung. We packed our bags and took a flight with Air Macau. The flight was fairly priced (economy ticket) and had excellent service. My most interesting thing in Kaohsiung was the reverse fortune ritual at the iconic Dragon-Tiger Pavillion. The ritual required one to run through the mouth of the dragon and come out of the tiger's mouth to turn bad luck into good luck. Our best shopping experience in Kaohsiung was at Xinjuejiang shopping district. The stalls had very trendy items that were reasonably priced. We also visited Kaohsiung Museum of Fine Arts and Fo Guang Shan Buddha Museum.

If you cannot avoid changing the airline, the option you are left with is to cancel your current ticket, request for a refund then purchase a new ticket.
