Kaohsiung City in southern Taiwan is hosting this year’s World Games global event. Taiwan and Kaohsiung are now in final preparations for the games, starting in less than 2 weeks. Following a number of queries by email, following are some personal recommendations for a Kaohsiung itinerary for those planning to visit Kaohsiung to see the World Games and a bit of the area. There are still alot of tickets and available accommodation options all over Kaohsiung City and County – BTW.
If you’re looking for things to do in Kaohsiung, other than the World Games, following is a suggested 7 days itinerary for Kaohsiung City and the area:
Day 1 – Explore Kaohsiung City
Day 2 – More of Kaohsiung City
Day 3 – Day Trip to Kaohsiung County
Day 4 – Day trip to Kaohsiung County’s Fo Guang Shan
Day 5 – Chill out with family & friends
Day 6 – Go shopping
Day 7 – Day trip to Little Liu Chiu
Still got some extra time? More about the Kaohsiung attractions and hot spots on the Taiwan government travel website. Feedback and other ideas are very welcome.
(Update : I’m not very familiar with accommodation in Kaohsiung, but since a few of you asked – Taiwanderful has a few recommendations for budget accommodation in Kaohsiung, and you can also check Agoda for a few more)
