Taiwan Kaohsiung International Airport (KHH)
A medium-sized facility, the Taiwan Kaohsiung International Airport (KHH) began life as a purely domestic terminal in 1965. International flights began some time later, although the official international terminal wasn't actually opened until 1997.
Kaohsiung Airport lies around 9 km / 6 miles south of Kaohsiung city centre, within the Hsiaogang area and next to the suburbs of Houtatso, Ijen, Talinpu and Wulung. The airport serves flights to mainland China and other south-east Asian countries, as well as connecting with Chiang Kai-shek International Airport in Taipei.
A variety of bus companies operate services to and from Taiwan Kaohsiung International Airport, providing useful connections with nearby train stations, such as the Tzouying North Station, along with downtown Kaohsiung itself. For those without hotel pick ups, taxis and private cars provide the most convenient alternative to buses and are readily available outside both of the terminals.
About Kaohsiung Tourism
Kaohsiung is Taiwan's second largest city and located on the southern side of the country. Whilst Kaohsiung may not be considered as a major tourist destination in the same way that Taipei is, it still has plenty to offer visitors, such as cruising along the Love River, the beautiful Holy Rosary Cathedral, the Spring and Autumn Pavilions at the Lotus Lake, the immense National Science and Technology Museum, and the acclaimed Museum of Fine Arts, located within the Gushan District.
Many waterfront attractions are close to Taiwan's Kaohsiung Airport (KHH) and based around the city's Fisherman's Wharf and enormous harbour, which is amongst the world's biggest. The Liouho Night Market is popular with tourists and is a good place to barter for goods such as clothing, handicrafts, cameras, knives and live animals. Other sights to see include the Old Kaohsiung Railway Station, Tuntex Sky Tower, Fengshan Old City and Zuoying's Lotus Lake and the spectacular towering Chang-Gu World Trade Centre (Grand 50 Tower), which was once the tallest building in the whole of Taiwan.
