Discovery Channel to feature stories about Kaohsiung City

The culture and history of Taiwan's southern harbor city Kaohsiung will be featured on the Discovery Channel through the tales of six local residents.
"Kaohsiung is the city that best represents the beauty of Taiwan's ocean, with its friendly people and nice weather," Kaohsiung's acting mayor Yeh Chu-lan (葉菊蘭) remarked at the program's pre-shooting press conference held Monday at the True Love Wharf along Kaohsiung Harbor.
The program is being produced by the Discovery Channel in conjunction with the Kaohsiung city government. Yeh, dressed in a sailing guernsey, promoted the program and Kaohsiung's history, culture, international development and tourism.
She said that Kaohsiung's excellent location are proof of its prosperity and residents' open-mindedness, and serves to stimulate Kaohsiung city's ongoing development.
While Kaohsiung has been upgraded from an export-processing zone to an international tourism harbor, with Love River being cleaned up from a filthy waterway into one of Taiwan's top eight picturesque scenes, she said she expects the program will serve to introduce Kaohsiung's history, culture and cuisine to the world.
