  • 打狗英國領事館官邸本身真的不錯,二樓的High Tea不要錯過啊。而且官邸本身位處較高位置,可以清楚望到整個港口。不過,去入口的路途有太多的爬梯級,老人和小孩可能不太適合。

  • It was worth the entry ticket. Beautiful gardens, and you can go down the steps to a whole world of statues representing real historical people. 
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • One of the best views of kaoshiung. Perfect dating spot, it's really worth seeing.
  • It's a nice place, not far from the wharf and offers various views toward Siziwan Bay, the downtown, and Cijin Island.
  • Place of great historical value. There are places inside where you can find something to eat and drink. Clean area and very friendly staff.
