Kaohsiung is a beautiful ocean-side city that hosts many important sporting events every year and will be a wonderful cultural experience for families (they are also famous for their fantastic food)! Congratulations to WSSA Taiwan for being awarded the 2017 World Championships!
Stay tuned to www.theWSSA.com for more details.
The city sits on the southwestern coast of Taiwan facing the Taiwan Strait, bordering Tainan City to the North, Chiayi and Nantou County to the North-west, Taitung County to its North-east and Pingtung County to the South and South-east. The downtown areas are centered on Kaohsiung Harbor with the island of Qijin on the other side of the harbor acting as a natural breakwater. The Love River (or Ai River) flows into the harbor through the Old City and downtown. Zuoying Military Harbor lies to the north of Kaohsiung Harbor and the city center. Kaohsiung's natural landmarks include the coral mountains Ape Hill, Shoushan and Mount Banping.
