Love Pier

My previous post with the Love Arch was taken close to home during the last Christmas holiday. Today's post was taken in Kaohsiung, Taiwan where it is always Valentine's Day at the Love Pier.


Kaohsiung is the 2nd largest city in Taiwan located on the southern part of the island.
On our tour, we arrived at the pier by the Love River just before sundown.


As daylight disappeared, the bridge across the river lights up.


It might be hard to see, but the boats with the green neon lights take visitors down the river for a romantic cruise. With its tropical climate, people can enjoy this pastime any time of the year.


From what I read, the parks on both sides of the river can be packed with thousands of people during festivals or water sporting events, but on this particular weeknight during our visit, this ice cream shop sits idle and is empty of customers.

Nice, when I was in Gullin, I saw a bridge which was lighted exactly like this.

Greetings,
