Martyrs' Shrine, Kaohsiung

4.1
The moderately difficult hike to Martyrs' Shrine seems utterly worth it once you arrive and catch a glimpse of the scenic views. From the panoramic viewing decks, you can enjoy vistas over the whole city of Kaohsiung, as well as the harbor, the clear ocean, and the towering mountains. The vibrant shrine serves as a favorite place for couples in particular, but you can also see many friends and families spending time out in the nature. Wander through the colorful gardens filled with a rich diversity of flowers and other plants, taking some time to enjoy the nature around you and the light, refreshing breeze.

    Spectacular. Come very early (to avoid crowds) or very late ( to enjoy night views).

    It's a beautiful and quiet place. There is an observatory deck not too far away in walking distance, for a good view of Kaohsiung City. Just note on the mosquitoes.

    Came up here for the view, due to bad air pollution which covered half of the city, still pretty but looks foggy tho. I saw people rode their bike, its good for cycling but kinda dangerous to me as some people here dont quite follow traffic rules. 😩

    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.

    The place is pretty small. However worth to see the night view when nearby.

Where to stay in Kaohsiung

Kaohsiung caters to a range of budgets and styles in the accommodations it provides for its guests. To keep things simple and easy, take a look at the options close to Formosa Boulevard, the station where the two metro lines intersect. To the north lies the main train station, and the area has been dotted with high-rise hotels, both standard and luxurious. Backpacker-friendly hostels are never too far away in this district, while a number of traditional guesthouses can be found in the surrounding residential areas. Atmospheric, and usually budget-friendly, they provide a good option to for those wanting a side of the city other than the ultra-modern one of the central area.
