Kaohsiung’s unique harbor city charm favored by the nature is consists of mountain, ocean, river and harbor. With such abundance in resources as the perfect tool for marketing of the city, tourism events increased steadily. A combination of ocean and harbor elements can be seen through events such as, the “Dragon Boat Race”, “Lantern Festival”, “Kaohsiung International Container Arts Festival”, as well as the “Cijin Black Sand Play and Arts Festival”.
