Occupying a special place in the hearts of locals, Ai He (Love River) plays an important role in the city's tourism, economy, and culture. Go on a solar-powered boat tour to observe the tidal river and enjoy the picturesque city scenery. You can also rent bikes from stands along the riverbank to explore the surrounding attractions, such as lively night markets and outdoor cafes with live music. The government has significantly improved the water quality over the past few years, but floodgates still must remain open during rainy season, which can send pollution into the river's lower stretch.

Ai He (Love River) Reviews
迷っていたら、出ました。 磯の香り、景色も良く、暑くてバテ始めてた気分が、スッキリしました。 夜は、夜景がキレイだとの事ですので、次回は夜景を見たいです。 more »If I was lost, I went out. The smell of the sea shore, the scenery is good, and the feeling that it was hot and i was beginning to bate was refreshing. At night, because it is a thing that the night view is beautiful, I want to see the night view next time.
沿着愛河附近慢慢走了一圈，發現河水裏面有不少垃圾，附近人流也不多。比起在網路上看到的報道有很大落差，期望政府能認真整治。 more »Walking slowly around the River, I found a lot of garbage on the surface of the river, and there was not much nearby. Compared with the road on the road, we expect the Government to do a good thing.
Good scenery, the wind blows nicely. Many benches, bridges. Good place to jog or run or cycling. Not noisy, great place for "me time". But unfortunately, no free wifi.
During the winter months, when the weather is not so dang hot, the promenade along the south bank of the Love River is really quite nice (especially at dusk, when everything is lit up). Highly recommended if you find yourself down here.
