Food assumes such an elevated status in southern Taiwan that people often greet each other with a cheery "chr bao le mei" which translates,  "Have you eaten yet?"   The inquiry confirms food as the source for well being.  Guided by climate and lifestyle, the Kaohsiung palate is both practical and conservative.  Cafeteria or buffet style service is preferred, and simple street side settings are most popular.  A sampling of local and international spots follow..  Bon Appetite!

          And, be sure to check out: Keeping an Eye on Kenting
There are several options for affordable stays in the downtown area.  Many are "walk in’s" along Kenting Road and don't require a reservation.  Folks on a tight budget opt for camping on the beach.  Hostels- in Nanwan cater to surfers. The Teachers Hostel-, Catholic Hostel, and Kenting Youth Activity Center can be good deals, but book early since space is limited and demand is high.  Or check out the Dakota- Inn, tatami floored teepees for rent off the main road and near the beach.  French and English speakers can call Chez Papa (see “Restaurants”) for Bed & Breakfast stays.

Resorts offer full ammenities and package- plans.  Some include a membership fee, which means additional- cost is added to room rates for non-members.  Resorts also provide shuttle service and a host of activities- from parasailing to bike rentals.  Weekends and holidays are busy and peak season is from April~September.
