I live here. It’s fine. But “southern gem”? That’s some hard sell. The only two places really worth visiting from a tourism perspective (Pier 2 and Lotus Pond) are the sole focuses of this pamphlet for a reason. And you can explore both thoroughly in a day. I don’t want to be too mean to Kaohsiung. I’ve built a decent life and have some good memories, but if I wasn’t tied here due to job and family I would definitely live in Taipei.
Now if this poster starts talking about the fascinating wonders and delights of a Taoyuan Walking Tour, we’ll really know they’re blowing smoke up our ass.
