Kaohsiung is located in the southern half of Taiwan on the south west coast and is hotter and more humid than Taipei.  The city itself has a lot to offer both tourists and short term residents, and there is something here for everyone.  Shoushan Mountain at the edge of the city is popular with hikers, while the huge parks around the Museum of Art are an ideal spot to get away from it all without having to leave town.  A bustling night-life exists, with night markets, Karaoke bars, dance clubs, and a host of other options to keep one entertained indefinitely.  Foreigners living and teaching in Kaohsiung tend to live an active life style and there are numerous organized sporting activities to get involved in, including baseball, street hockey, climbing, and many more.  A wide variety of food and fresh fruit, as well as the ever popular bubble tea stands, guarantee that you’ll find something to please your palate, and for those craving a taste of home, there are many western style restaurants, serving up Italian, Mexican, French, and Indian cuisine, not to mention a good dose of Pub Grub, available at any of the several foreign owned watering holes.
