  • Seas are frozen in the art zone of the top comp station shortly before the tour is a great place! (Hit the island, United Kingdom Embassy also go) do not have to specifically look for things where it is excessively. The old station and does not move anymore and the old trains, and of Kaohsiung and goes well. Commemorative stamp.

  • Next to the Metro station Sizihwan orange line), and not at the exit for the ferry, but the other. Free admission. On a huge terrain, where countless rails are installed, 5 locomotives and 10 carriages are appreciated. If you want to ferry anyway, then you should make the trip here, extra come not pays off.

  • The Light Rail is still under construction. It is a great place after the construction completed and have trains stopping at that station again.
  • Is not a good place to visit. Better go directly to 2-pier zone and love river.
  • Do you enjoy trains? Well, they have those.
  • It is connected to Metro station, easy to reach and you can see a big space and relaxing atmosphere. Bring your kids to here to enjoy a wonderful afternoon..... or ride your bike here, it is very well planned and organized infras.
  • Free but probably not worth your time

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.
