In 2007 I published a little series of posts about the city of Kaohsiung. According the blog´s statistics those articles are seemingly still interesting for readers from all parts of the world. Most of the pictures got lost because the - for a long time closed - web page of PASSADO had hosted them. The city government of Kaohsiung had changed their internet presentation thus several links were broken. Now I rebuilt the three articles:
Kaohsiung (高雄) – A city advances
Kaohsiung (高雄) - 2nd part
Many things happened in Kaohsiung during the last 5 years. The city got a metro system, hosted the World Games, merged with the county. Much more changed: Industrial and military use moved back. Culture and tourism, commerce and communication gained more importance. There is a lot to report about the city´s development between 2007 and today.
