Silversea Luxury Cruises A Kaohsiung

Kaohsiung

Kaohsiung is Taiwan’s second largest city, its biggest seaport, and the world’s fourth largest container port. It entered the 21st century as a newly emerging international metropolis. In the forefront of Taiwan’s expansion and modernisation efforts are the China Steel Corporation and China Shipbuilding. They are perfect examples of what Taiwan’s export-oriented economy is all about. The Love River, which has seen some recent landscaping, adds to the beauty of the city. Coffee shops along its banks offer good opportunities to view the river’s activities and enjoy a nice breeze. View more

A 495-feet (150 metres)-long urban corridor of light, known as Urban Spotlight, was designed by local artists who wanted to make light and shadows the theme of the hall. The result is an urban space in the Central Park area teeming with artistic vision. A very important event in Taiwan’s recent history occurred here in 1979, and is known as the Kaohsiung Incident. It was the day of the first major human rights celebration on the island. Until that time, the authorities had never allowed any expression of discontent. When the day came, however, the celebration ended in chaos when police encircled the peaceful crowd and started using teargas, and pro-government instigators incited violence. Kuomintang (KMT) authorities used this as an excuse to round up all well-known opposition leaders and imprison them. Although it was hardly noticed internationally, it is recognised locally as an important turning point in the island’s transition to democracy, and it galvanised the Taiwanese people into action.

Excursiones en Kaohsiung

Fo Guang Shan & A Thousand Buddha Images

Fo Guang Shan

Depart the pier for the approximately one-hour drive to Tashu Village, where Fo Guang Shan, the largest Buddhist monastery in Taiwan, stands majestically above the Kaoping River. The entire mountain has been developed into a complex of temples, shrines and gardens. Fo Guang Shan combines modern facilities with traditional teaching in a way that makes it adaptable to daily life.


Main Shrine and Exhibition Gallery

Master Hsing Yun founded the monastery in 1967. Upon arrival at the monastery, take a guided walking tour of this enormous complex. See the dazzling Main Shrine, which features three majestic Buddha statues and small niches housing over 1,000 images, the Exhibition Gallery and the gift shop, where a cup of tea is served. Other highlights include the 500 Arhats Garden and the 394-foot-high (120-metre-high) golden Buddha statue, which is surrounded by 480 smaller golden statues and beautiful landscaped grounds.


Spring and Autumn pagodas

Next, re-board your coach and drive to Spring and Autumn pagodas. Upon arrival at the Spring and Autumn pagodas, take a guided tour of the pagodas and see the colorful temples along the Lotus Lake. Before heading back to the pier, your tour concludes with a visit to Central Park, where modern facilities have been incorporated with underground passages, upscale shops, cafés, and restaurants. If you want to spend more time to explore the city, you may take shuttle back to the pier.



Following your visit, commence the approximately 30-minute drive back to the pier.


Please note: This tour involves an extensive amount of walking, with many steps to negotiate at Fo Guang Shan. It is not suitable for guests with limited mobility and guests who utilise a wheelchair. During the monastery visit, shoes must be removed at the entrance to the Main Shrine. A golf cart may be available at Fo Guang Shan to reduce some of the walking required. Guests are advised to wear lightweight, comfortable clothing and bring sunscreen, a hat and sunglasses from the ship.

Kaohsiung Highlights

Explore the ancient and modern sights of Taiwan's second-largest city during this picturesque sightseeing excursion to Kaohsiung.


Spring and Autumn Pagodas

Depart the pier for the approximately 30-minute sightseeing drive through the bustling streets of Kaohsiung. From here, head towards the most scenic area on the northern outskirts of the city, where a profusion of temples overlook Lotus Lake. Upon arrival at the Spring and Autumn pagodas, take a guided tour of the pagodas and see other colourful temples along this street. These symbols of the ancient Chinese spirit offer solace from the hectic life of modern Kaohsiung.


Shou-Shan Mountain

Next, re-board your coach and drive up to the lookout at Shou-Shan Mountain. Take in spectacular panoramic views overlooking the enormous harbour, the world's third-largest container port with miles of navigation channels. After your photo stop, explore the modern part of the city during a drive through the downtown area and a visit to Central Park.


Central Park

Upon arrival, some free time is made available to take photos and explore the modern facilities connected by underground passages, upscale shops, cafés, and restaurants.


Following your visit, you may opt to re-board the coach for the approximately 30-minute ride back to the pier, or remain in the city and return to the ship via shuttle bus.


Please note: This tour involves a moderate amount of walking, with up to 50 steps to negotiate at the Spring and Autumn pagodas.
