The end of the summer not only brings some well received cooler weather to Kaohsiung, but also some of the most impressive skies.
The sky is full of bold clouds, but the clear air means that the sun can usually be seen all the way to the horizon. It’s still within typhoon season, so on days when there’s a storm brewing the mix of evening light and ominous clouds can make for some overpowering views.
One some days the deep yellow and oranges make the sky seem like it’s on fire. Other days watercolor-like shades of purple, red, orange and yellow make marshmallow skies.
Make the most of these views while you can, because as Winter draws in the air quality worsens resulting in hazy and smoggy skies.
