To enjoy the full experience of the Love River， a boat tour has become a popular choice amongst visitors. In 2004， the Transportation Bureau introduced The Love Boat River Tours， which have become very popular. The "Love Boats"， gracefully floating up and down the Love River are central to Kaohsiung's developing tourism and one of the best ways to see the city. There are three locations where the river boat tours can be picked up. Plan for an entire afternoon to take a "Love Boat" tour and enjoy a different perspective of Kaohsiung.
