For twd25 per adult, you get to go on a short ferry ride from Gushan to Cijin island. Should you want to bring your bike or motorbike on the lower deck of the ferry, prices start from a very reasonable twd50 onwards. Though the ride is short, the sights you catch is rather scenic so I would recommend trying to... More

The ferry transports people as well as motorcycles between Gushan and Chijin with only about 10 minutes ride, very convenient and safe. Of course, the scene of motorcycles pour off the ferry is an eye opening experience. One can pay cash or with MRT fare card to pay for the ride. During weekends the waiting line could be long. The...

Take the Kaohsiung MRT orange line to Sizihwan Station. The Gushan Ferry Pier is close by. Just around 5 minutes by ferry to the island. You can rent a bike outside the ferry pier or you can just walk around. The Qijin Tianhou Temple is just outside the pier. Lots of stalls selling seafood.

The entire journey took me around 10 minutes from Kaohsiung to Cijin island and vice versa. Trip was smooth, punctual and enjoyable but the lower floor was a bit dirty. Travelling during weekend might not be a good idea since thousands of people flooding to the ferry station with a long line waiting to get on and travelling to the... More

The line was too long, waited around 45min for our return trip, also they didnt make space for bicycle riders to line up, we had to lined up next to motor bikes on the road which is potentially dangerous to many riders. During the peak hours the number of ferry were the same as non-peak, which resulted in the long... More

Went to fishermen's island on it, rented 4 wheel electric cycle to ride along the shore. Found a local great seafood restaurant. Enjoyed 3 hours ride around the island.

The ferries go every 10 mins and it's well worth a trip across the water, had a lovely day out with lots to see and many different shops and street market. Lots of fresh fish restaurants and street food.

Don't waste your time with a boat tour. There are some pleasant riverfront cafes & desert stops that are good for a rest between activities or meals.

We took the ferry to Cijin and it was super inexpensive. Staff helped us since we didn't speak Chinese. Ferry was smooth and efficient and delivered us safely to Cijin.

The ferry terminal is located near to mrt station, so it is a short walking to take the ferry. The ferry terminal beside is a bridge for good photo taking, the price is only 25 twd per person and even though we are foreigner, my mum and aunty just need to pay 12 twd each for elderly price. The waiting... More
