The Love River or Ai River is a river in southern Taiwan. It originates in Renwu Township, Kaohsiung County, and flows 12 kilometers through Kaohsiung to Kaohsiung Harbor. Love River is the spine of Kaohsiung, playing a similar role to the River Thames of London. It is of great cultural significance to the people of Taiwan and also plays an important role in its economy and tourism industry.

 

The Love River is often considered the soul of Kaohsiung City. Love River lies across Kaohsiung for times of sunrises and sunsets. The riverbanks beautified with greenery and parks, is a romantic place for lovers to date each other, therefore, the river was reputed as Love River

  

爱河,是一条位在台湾高雄市境内的小型河川。源于高雄县仁武乡八卦寮,流经高雄市中心并于高雄港出海。长期改造后,现已为知名景点,尤其是两畔的夜景。并曾在2001、2002年两次作为台湾灯会主场地。
