The Love River is an extremely important river for Kaohsiung. It used to be called,  "Da Gou Chuan”, but the Japanese changed it to "Kaohsiung Chuan”before it finally became Love River. This river flows past many important areas, with its trip ending at Kaohsiung's first port. Love River used to be badly polluted from industrial pollution from factories, but in the recent times the Kaohsiung government has spent alot of effort into fixing this river, completely changing the way it looks. It no longer reeks of awful smells or trash floating across the river. Now there are boats gliding across the water, pedestrians and bikers on the paths by the river, or tourists and locals taking strolls. There are many restaurants, bars, cafes, boutiques, and street performers on both sides of the river giving Love River its new look and meaning. At night the Love River transforms with rainbow colored neon lights. The lights reflect off the water, making the river even more mesmerizing. The brand new riverside view has become Kaohsiung's pride, and is a place that all tourists must visit when stopping by Kaohsiung!
