Kaohsiung City is now a 'special municipality' (直轄市) in south-western Taiwan. Kaohsiung City was a 'provincial city' (市) from 1945 until 1979 when it was upgraded to 'special municipality' status. In 2010, it was merged with the former Kaohsiung County (高雄縣) to form the current, larger 'special municipality'.

Note: all postmarks appearing on this page, reading only '高雄' (or 'KAOHSIUNG' in Roman letters), will date from the 'Kaohsiung City' of the pre-2010 period.
