History[edit]

Kaohsiung County was established on 6 December 1945 after the handover of Taiwan from Japan to the Republic of China on 25 October 1945. Initial area of Kaohsiung County included the present-day Kaohsiung City and Pingtung County. On 16 August 1950, Pingtung County was separated from Kaohsiung County to be its own county. On 25 December 2010, the county merged with Kaohsiung City to form a larger single special municipality.[1]
