Where to Shop in Kaohsiung, Taiwan

Head to Pier-2 Art Center for unique clothes, gifts and even car collectibles

The Pier-2 Art Center occupies once-abandoned warehouses at Kaohsiung’s port in Yancheng district. The forgotten area was given a new lease of life with a major refurbishment, which turned the dilapidated facilities into an art and cultural hub, with a strong industrial character kept intact. The warehouse cluster is now home to popular restaurants, galleries and performance venues, which are found amid a mix of greenery and art installations.
