Solar Powered Boat (The Love Boat)

Sail along the love river with waterfronts smelling of flowers, the breeze gently clearing the air. This luxurious and romantic experience is an absolute must if you’re visiting Kaohsiung. The Kaohsiung Love Boat is a completely new kind of solar powered boat that, unlike other boats, creates no oil or noise pollution, and it is considerably more comfortable than a passenger boat. The LED lights on the hull at night attract shoals of fish, and if you’re lucky you can get lovely view of the different species of birds perched on the bridge. The enthusiastic tour guides will share with you all of Kaohsiung Harbor’s most unique local customs.
