  • 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

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.

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.
