Dragon Tiger Tower, Kaohsiung
(3.6/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
The seven-story Dragon Tiger Tower stands as a strong example of traditional Kaohsiung style and culture. One of two towers built in 1976, it connects to the other by a bridge. This temple is marked by its yellow walls, orange tiles, and red pillars. In one of the towers you will find representations of the 12 Magi, Confucius, and Jade Emperor's palaces. Before scaling the site's spiral staircase, take a walk along the nearby lake and look out upon the Small Tortoise mountains and several pavilions.

  • There are information boards, from the mouth of a dragon on the left side there are the exit from the Tiger's mouth. Along the way, up to the two towers. Is tired of walking legs are tight, but only up to the 6th floor could go up. Wind view from the top is very nice and helpful.

  • Another great place to travel here in Kaohsiong, I enjoyed sight seeing with my friend. Very clean surrounding. 
  • Nearest train station is high with iron left Sakae station, left wing station and trail a little from both, but was not. (About a 15-minute walk from? ) Lotus pond and become a tourist destination, there are various view points, is one of them. Rising to the twin towers, and into the mouth of which is possible is possible. Lotus Lake view from the top of the tower is spectacular.
