Many interested Singaporeans are inquiring
about rural tours in Kaohsiung.

sign up online and have a good time with local people. Moreover, in addition to
the one-day trip, it also customized two-day one-night activity based on the

fireflies. The rich ecological environment of the hometown, dotted with the
starlight like flashing fireflies, enjoying the original cuisine together

taste the fresh mango and on-site made mango milk, etc. With the changes in the
four seasons, different rural experience activities will be launched, so that
domestic and foreign tourists will experience different experiences every time
they go to Kaohsiung.

agents are also taking initiative in inquiring about the relevant tours and itineraries,
from the type and safety of fruit picking, DIY items and flavor meals, travel
time planning, etc. In particular, season-limited high economic crops such as
mango, wax apple and dates are mostly inquired. From the on-site personnel's
