  • The Red House is very ancient, the picture is very good-looking, and the old wind is full. Of course, the first thing that attracts me is the name, the dog-fighting is really funny! Next to the temple? Along the way down the mountain can come to known zhaimen learning!

  • Can feel the traces of history, but also very attentively in the preservation of a little bit of business, is the shadow of the classical rose garden it would be better if you could have some more historical introductions.

  • Recommendations must participate in the scenic spot free navigation, very live Songkran fun, so that the whole scene point alive. When the weather is good, it is beautiful and you can see the West Bay and Kaohsiung Harbor.

  • Amazing experience, the tea house after walking around offering good taste tea. The people around are very helpful starting from the gate. It was short stay but we get touch with the past through the way the place is managed and preserved. The view from top is breathtaking.
  • Good place to visit and learn about taiwan’s history. The balcony at the back door allows a magnificent view of the Shiziwan seaside. Going down the steep road from the back door, leads to the seaside, where sun shines and the breeze from the sea cools you down.
  • The place itself was great, I especially liked the yummy quality afternoon high tea set, not to be missed, with fantastic sea view and breeze out the terrace. Only thing not so impressed there is the coffee being just very average, and was told not refillable when I asked for a refill. The other really negative experience is the attitude of the security guards, half of them were like tensed up army officers on duty as if we were enemies. Theres a young lady guard down the lower level entrance (where the former office of the consulate is located) who shouted at my wife very rudely just because my wife‘s hand touched a concrete statue when she was trying to take a picture with it.
  • Cijin lighthouse can be viewed from this place. Offers good view on good day and easily accessible by public transport. From top of the hill where the former consulate office sits, you can see the beautiful Shihziwan Bay
  • Very interesting and well preserved historical site which is easy to get to. Not every plaquard and explanation is in English though. Great views for pictures.
