  • Saw this multiple times while using the underground mrt public transit. Looked amazing and very detailed.  more »
  • Bus from the station, high iron. Arrived at Hotel pankrac"beautiful island" station, and stained glass. Stained-glass circular square exit 10. To take a picture, put the two pillars and the tourists on the ground and aims the best shot. So then, here was based in Kaohsiung, you got used to this landscape.

  • Speaking of the famous scene of the station to accommodation around the U.S. this autumn, and I went on purpose but if some obscure. Mirage also said that this beautiful island was probably rather than named Taiwan, Formosa and might be related.
