Kaohsiung City is not far from Taipei by train. The tickets are not really expensive and the comfort is fine in the modern High Speed Train. When you arrive to the Station, you will need to take a cab for going in the downtown. I think, it's in this place around Zhonghua Street where there are the most interesting of things. The 360° view from the top of the Tuntex Sky Tower is incredible. Near this place, there is a market in the main avenue. It's curious to see that.
