Ride the Duck Bus

Taiwan’s second largest city, Kaohsiung, is often called the “Ocean Capital”, because of its large port and proximity to the sea. Besides the ocean it also boasts a large lake and a river that flows right through downtown.

As a fun way to see the sights and sounds of the city the government launched amphibious buses that navigate the various roads and waterways. The locals call them affectionately “duck buses” and they have been a great hit with visitors to the city.

  1. How wonderful. I’d love to visit and take a ride on the duck bus. It is certainly unusual.
