Taiwan News—Would you like to look out to the sea or to North Dawu Mountain on the border of Pingtung County and Taitung County from Kaohisung? If so, you should visit the Siaogangshan Skywalk Park (崗山之眼), the only skywalk in Kaohsiung.

The park will begin trial operation on February 4.

The Tourism Bureau of Kaohsiung City said Tuesday that members of the public are welcome to visit the park for free during the trial operation, but after it officially opens on February 14, the ticket is NT$80 for adult and a half-fare ticket is NT$40, the agency said.

However, after the official opening, residents of Gangshan (岡山) and Yenchao (燕巢) will enjoy free admission to the park, according to media reports.

The Siaogangshan Skywalk Park is one of the city government’s main tourism construction projects in Gangshan District in recent years. The park is located on a hilltop overlooking the scenic Agongdian Reservoir (阿公店水庫) and facilitated with forested trails. The skywalk gives visitors views that extend very far, weather conditions permitting.

The shape of the Siaogangshan Skywalk Park takes up the theme of music as the main pylon, which is 40.5 meters tall, is shaped like a violin, and the suspension cables look like strings.

The skywalk is supported by 24 suspension cables, and the whole skywalk is 88 meters long and two meters wide.

Kaohsiung’s Siaogangshan Skywalk Park (崗山之眼) on Sunday hosted a bridal fashion show and concert, attracting 1,000 people.

The park, which features a tower from which people can view the city, has attracted more than 600,000 visitors since opening in February, city officials said.

Hopefully, the event will help promote Kaohsiung as a young and hip city, and not as “old and weak” as Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) Kaohsiung mayoral candidate Han Kuo-yu (韓國瑜) suggested at a campaign event, the officials said.

Kaohsiung Tourism Bureau Director-General Tseng Tzu-wen (曾姿雯) said the event aimed to help promote tourism and support local wedding dress designers.

Studio and outdoor pre-wedding photoshoots are a big industry in Taiwan, and Tseng said he hopes the show will attract couples to have their pictures taken in Kaohsiung.

The park, which was converted from an old military lookout, houses a repainted pillbox, an 88m skywalk that looks like a violin and a tower with a viewing platform.

Visitors to Kaohsiung might also want to see a museum that focuses on luwei (滷味), snacks marinated in soy sauce, and the Taiwan Bean Sauce Story House, which are suitable for family visits, the bureau said.

Tourists can also visit the Mituo (彌陀), Zihguan (梓官) and Cieding (茄萣) districts to explore the local culture, it added.

Singer Shih Wen-bin (施文彬) performed Where There is True Love (真愛的所在) — a song inspired by the park — at the event.

The lyrics were written by Shih and Golden Melody Award best songwriter award winner Wu Hsiung (武雄).

Wu has written the lyrics for many popular songs, including singer Chiang Hui’s (江蕙) Feng Chui Feng Chui (風吹風吹) and rock band Shin’s (信樂團) Tien Kao Ti Hou (天高地厚).
