(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.

  • 由旗津渡輪站搭渡輪回鼓山渡輪站,出了鼓山站渡輪站後左轉,在不遠處有座橫跨ㄧ號船渠(鼓山漁港)的自行車道景觀橋,既連接海濱二路與哨船街的一座可通行自行車和人的橋樑,越過景觀橋來到了哨船街,便見到對街有ㄧ片空曠的基地,穿過基地在安船街30巷處,便見到打狗英國領事館官邸景觀步道的指標,沿著指標方向斜坡、石階尋幽探古ㄧ番並逐步往鼓山登上,最後由靈興殿(十八王公廟廟)旁公廁之間穿出,就來到了與靈興殿相鄰的打...  more »
  • First. It's about a 10 to 15 min walk from the nearest mrt station. But you can get a citywide bus pass daypass stamp from the information desk once you leave the place and ride any city bus for free ...  more »
  • 傍晚前去,夕陽餘暉。 現在遊客人還是很多, 但是不會像之前一樣, 都是亂糟糟的人群, 可以享受美麗的夕陽。

  • 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.
