The British Consulate At Takao, Kaohsiung
(3.4/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Get an insightful look into the British Empire's influence in Taiwan by visiting The British Consulate At Takao. The building is a former consulate, built in 1865, and today it serves as a museum and a restaurant. Spend some time in the roof garden cafe and experience panoramic views of the city and its coastline and port. This two-story Renaissance-style museum teaches about the history of the city. Prepare yourself for a climb, however, because there are many stairs to the top.

  • From the MRT's sizihwan station can get on the bus. Much of the taxi you can get. Consulate of United Kingdom in the past.

  • 英國領事館官邸入口位於國立中山大學校門口附近,建築物旁緊鄰十八王公廟(目前整修中),需要爬一段階梯,旁邊有個斜坡可供車輛行駛上去(但不太清楚是否有開放),如果是在地高雄市民票價較優惠(需攜帶身分證等證件),建築物頗有設計風格,若想了解建築結構或對於打狗歷史想了解,建議可以挑選有解說員解說的時段,解說員的解說也十分幽默風趣,也有提供外拍、專業攝影、婚紗等(須付費),或是喜歡拍攝風景照的人也可以嘗試使...  more »
  • 10/10 (Mon.) 17:00 ~ 18:00 in the '俩 of lamb"late lunch and then arrive in taxi 85 original from Wan Chai station of MRT West. Entrance fee 99 to 30 with a shopping voucher of the original, but nothing to buy. It was unused. Have a nice Western-style building with brick and up the stairs, entrance portal from the coast. Cannot see the sunset in the angle is if the coffee shop is in the mansion on the Hill, but stopped and looked at the outside terrace.

  • Visited the place twice in three years. The building kept its old fashions, but the surroundings were heavily commercialized thanks to large flocks of tourists in recent years. Apart from the architecture, there wasn't much thing you could see in the interior. Still, you get a great view of the bay and the Kaohsiung City.
  • The building itself is fairly simple however there are great views of Kaohsiung from here
  • Great views of the city and ocean from above. Not really much else to do up there. Good for couple hours of afternoon coffee chat in the cafe and take in the views.
  • Used to be my favorite place to hang out with friends, drinking tea and watching the city. That was before the massive influx of tourists from China. It became mass-tourist-only destination. At least for me.
  • Many tourists go by here. But nothing impressive. And you have to pay if you wanna go in and see. I don't recommend it. Just look at it outside and go by only.
