Kao-hsiung - Taiwan

Kao-hsiung is a major port and industrial city on the southwest coast of Taiwan. Settled since the Ming dynasty, it became a Treaty Port and customs station in the 1800s but developed most as a port under Japanese occupation from 1895 to 1945. Taiwan, also known as Formosa, is the island province of China and, since the Communist victory in 1949 on the Chinese mainland, the seat of the government of the Republic of China. It is separated from the Chinese mainland by the Taiwan (Formosa) Strait and is bordered on the north by the East China Sea, on the east by the Pacific Ocean, and on the south by the South China Sea. The People's Republic of China also claims Taiwan as one of its provinces. The following 27 cruises call at Kao-hsiung.
