Kaohsiung Fisherman's Wharf.

The Kaohsiung Fisherman's Wharf (also Fishermen's Wharf,[1] Chinese: 高雄港漁人碼頭; pinyin: Gāoxiónggǎng Yúrén Mǎtóu) was originally the no.2 port of the port of Kaohsiung, Taiwan. Its previous function was exporting bananas, wood and steel.[citation needed] However, because of the transformation of economy and container automation, the function of the port declined gradually.

The government[which?] promotes the tourism industry in these years, so the no.2 port had the chance to become a sightseeing wharf, combining seaside scenery and food. The name of the wharf became a more cultural one as the Kaohsiung Fisherman's Wharf.

Nowadays, it has become one of Kaohsiung's scenic spots, following the successful step of The Urban Spotlight and Love River.[citation needed]

Transportation[edit]

The wharf is accessible within walking distance south east of Sizihwan Station of Kaohsiung MRT.
