  • We enjoyed the 3pm show. It is a Dazzling Show with Lights & Sound. My grandchildren are excited & kept on talking about it. 
  • You could see Formosa Boulevard MRT station was the closest station to hotel, so many times. Very beautiful stained glass ceiling. I thought a very beautiful space is inside the subway station.

  • 1,光之穹頂(美麗島站)位於高雄市都會區的市中心,是高雄市的心臟地帶,是高雄市捷運紅線與橘線的交會中心站。 2,美麗島站之名(美麗島)是為了紀念1979年台灣民主之路的起萌地點。 3,光之穹頂(美麗島站)在此則有不定期舉辦公益活動。 4,光之穹頂的景色圖騰經全世界評比為全世界排名第二的捷運廣場,到高雄市沒有到此地一遊的話,則算是未曾到過高雄市。
