Kaohsiung Sugar Refinery (Qiaotou Sugar Refinery)


Kaohsiung Sugar Refinery was originally known as “Kio-a-thau Sugar Refinery.” It was the first modernized mechanical sugar refinery of Taiwan and was founded 112 years ago. Its sugar factory, Japanese-style wooden buildings, bunker, red brick water tower and other heritage buildings were all well-preserved.

The office and club building inherited from the Japanese Colonial Era were built by Japanese people by imitating the colonial buildings of the Dutch in Southeast Asia. Besides leveling up its foundation, the corridors and consecutive arches all imitated European architecture style.

Qiaotou Sugar Refinery highly stresses the preservation and usage of the sugar industry cultural heritages and often hold cultural events in collaboration with Kaohsiung City Government and local societies in the factory.

It is the best destination for field trips. Guided tour service on the historical buildings, sugar industry related history heritage and the refinery are available in the refinery. Each guided tour is 90 minutes and we recommend groups of 30 people. Reservation hotline is 07-6113691.
