From sea, we built Kaohsiung.
In the winters
of some five hundred years ago, the Han people lived by
fishing for mullet. They finally came to Takau (the original
name of Kaohsiung, meaning bamboo) in which the aboriginal
people of Makattao had settled for twenty centuries. In
the 17th century, the Dutch sailors arrive in this small
finishing village and built it up as a trading station.
In 1684, the Ching Dynasty took Taiwan as part of its
territory. Later, Takau was formally opened for international
trade in 1863, thus also opening up cultural exchanges.
During the Japanese
Occupation Era (1897-1945), Takau had been changed into
Takao(i.e. Kaohsiung, in Chinese). The city is located
on the south-western coast of Taiwan, facing the Taiwan
Strait to the west and BashiStrait to the south. The Japanese
regarded it as the best stronghold for their progress
toward conquering South Asia and proceeded with a series
of projects including building up the harbor and the city.
Thus a little fishing port turned into an internationally
known harbor and the second largest city in Taiwan. Its
sunny southern climate attracts tourists from all over
