Kaohsiung is the second largest city in Taiwan. It seems more modern, less traditional than Taipei. Between the bay, harbor, and the Love River canal, Kaohsiung has a lot of attractive waterfront. Kaohsiung also has a metro, Kaohsiung Mass Rapid Transit System or KMRT, with some architecturally interesting stations, some with self-service bike rentals. There has been a concerted effort to include bike lanes around town. We had no trouble filling a day walking around the city and feeling the energy of an up-and-coming city.
