  • 高雄難得的夜景地標,非常適合情侶至此一訪。唯獨在交通上要注意,因夜晚參觀的人潮較多,且山路彎道頻繁,開車騎車的朋友要小心注意安全。 
  • 高雄市區內,要看夜景就這邊了吧 近又方便,不過人滿多的 常常看到有人來拍婚紗,也有很多外國觀光客呢!! 有停車場在旁邊,不過人多,要碰運氣

  • The place is pretty small. However worth to see the night view when nearby.
  • The shrine itself is beautiful. Be respective when visiting..do not talk or lough out loud. There is a spot outside of the shrine where you can have nice view of Kaohsiung. Plan half an hour to forty five minutes.
  • Kaohsiung Martyr's Shrine is the best spot to overlook the whole Kaohsiung city and the port. It used to be a Japanese Shinto shrine and change to a worshipping place.
  • Beautiful night view
  • Nice view of the Kaohsiung harbor.
