TAIPEI (Taiwan News) -- Kaohsiung Tourism Bureau invited the public to visit Kaohsiung and come to the best location in Taiwan to see off the last sunset of 2018 to the accompaniment of a concert, from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Dec. 31.

Kaohsiung Tourism Bureau Director-General Tseng Tzu-wen (曾姿雯) said that during the Qing Dynasty, the sunset at Sizihwan Bay was one of Taiwan’s Eight Famous Sights.

According to Central Weather Bureau’s statistics, Kaohsiung’s Sizihwan Bay is Taiwan Island's best location to watch the last sunset of the year. As it is also a popular photography destination for couples, the tourism bureau has held the activity of seeing off the last sunset of the year with music and dances at Sizihwan Bay every year since 2015, having attracted a large number of domestic and foreign attendees over the years, Tseng said.

The bureau has invited Neo-Classic Chamber Ensemble and an acappella group to perform on-site for this year's event, she added.

The bureau suggested attendees take Kaohsiung MRT, get off at Sizihwan Station, leave the station from Exit 2, take Bus 99, 99 Shuttle Bus, or Orange 1, and then get off at the Sizihwan bus stop.

The bureau chief also recommended the public to arrange a trip to visit Kaohsiung during the four-day New Year holiday.
