  • Lovely place to visit. At Formasa station very easy to come to see. They have light show on 8pm everyday  more »
  • It is beautiful. Clean but why photo better than Nice. Looks pretty more clearly and to see the Smartphone from seeing the real thing, and good sense is not necessary because station weekday holiday at any time feel deserted, not someone you're poking around and taking pictures.

  • A nice place to stop for 10 minutes, take pictures before or after going to Liuhe night market. I think this is a nice MRT stop compare to the other in Kaohsiung.  more »
