YenCheng and Gushan District are historic regions. Gushan was orginally named Ha Ma Shing, and it was from here that the city of Kaohsiung began its development since Japanese occupation. In 1908 this tidal flat was created from the soil of dredge channels. A railway station was constructed and the area gradually evolved into the core of sea and land transportation and consequently, the center of Kaohsiung’s political, economic, and cultural growth. Today this district provides recreational sites such as Hsitzuwan and Shoushan.

Fisheries and boat manufacturers are centralized in the Chi-Chin District—this is the best place to go for seafood. San Ming is the largest administrative district, Nan Tzu District and export process zone, while Tsoying District specializes in agriculture. It is also a marine military zone.
