  • 由于周一旗津灯塔关闭维修,打狗英国领事馆成了俯瞰高雄港的好地方。背后可以俯瞰整个西子湾,到了这里就不用下去看西子湾景区了。去的时候正好碰到有免费讲解,很幽默地讲解了这个领事馆以及高雄港的历史。  more »
  • 我第一次去的時候是已經十年前啦~現在剛好小孩已經長大一點了,而他也還沒有來過南台灣,所以就帶他來此處走走逛逛囉~  more »
  • It's Pat dog United Kingdom Consulate cultural park correctly. Darko archaisms in the otherwise old designation of Kaohsiung with the u. Historic red brick building is famous, but why let good view of Kaohsiung Harbor! Not raised a stair gate goes on and on, but it's worth. From 11 a.m. lunch outside at 2:00 at the Consulate House Roadhouse on the hill can enjoy traditional afternoon tea. Each room is recommended far terrace. As only 5 tables but not so soon become full. After lunch it is making him unstable. Because there is no time to take tours, please please go out on their own. Vigour is about 15 minutes from subway Tachibana line West Bay station distance away from historical train station and ride throughout the day on hop-off sightseeing bus "" Ma-star Culture Park car"is not a cover in the Consulate of the United Kingdom.

  • 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.
