Located in the southern part of Taiwan,the city of Kaohsiung (高雄) is the island's largest industrial center. It has stayed abreast of Taiwan's recent progress and prosperity; expanding and modernizing,the city strides into the 21st century as a newly emerging international metropolis. Beginnin centuries ago, Kaohsiung was called "Dagou" or "Dahgu," transliterated from the name of local aborigines. Disturbed by the violence of pirates in the area, in 1563, the "Takuo" tribe eventually moved to the site of present-day Pingtungcity. This name persisted untill 1920, when the city's name was changed to Kaohsiung.
