  • 高雄港濱舊倉庫群改造的公共空間,因遮蔭較缺乏,建議下午傍晚時分,為最佳賞玩時刻。散步欣賞裝飾藝術,腳踏車悠遊園區之間,都很愜意。 戶外太熱,則可挑一個展覽進去享受藝術洗禮與清涼冷氣,惟各倉庫展期不定期更換,行前建議先查詢駁二藝術特區網頁,以免在換檔期間掃興。 舊高雄濱海線的鐵道廣場公園以及高雄港站舊址,濃濃港都文化氣息,亦值得一訪。 
  • 在高雄宜人的天氣下最適合來逛駁二藝術特區,舊鐵道旁的藝術裝置可以讓你邊走邊欣賞,外表是舊糖業倉庫建築裡有各式各樣文創或精緻的展覽,也有很多文創的商店可以逛。鄰近海邊和港口,也可以順到散步走去欣賞海上風景。晚上的駁二更有另外一種特別風貌,非常適合情侶和三五好友來聊天散心。 
  • We spent the afternoon meandering through exhibits, markets, and went out along the pier itself to watch the boats. A great place to wander and get lost in the arts scene of taiwan. Family friendly. E...  more »

  • Cheese factory converted "design" stores. The government need to up it's policy to encourage real art and design activity. Not renting it to renters who pays the most rent, such as fake italian food.
  • Very relaxing place where you can see lots of art installation. Also a very good place to get some unique souvenir.
  • A very nice public space to visit and walk around with a historic feel. An old warehouse became an open space with arts and crafts.
  • Now that the godowns are used for a different purpose, it is an interesting visit for anyone wanting to learn a little of the past history and to enjoy the quaint atmosphere and environment.
  • Absolute must. Relaxing and lots of art. Good for jogging as well
