The Pier-2 Art Centre, Kaohsiung

4.2
A complex of old warehouses converted into exhibition halls and artsy boutiques, The Pier-2 Art Centre houses various modern art projects in the middle of a huge abandoned industrial district. Take in the psychedelic-colored sculptures, installations, graffiti, large paintings, and other street art, and browse around the various industrial structures, including an old steam engine on display. You can also stroll along the wharf or take a mini-train tour of this post-industrial area, built in 1973. Cafes, bars, bookstores, and handicraft shops cluster in this private, university-managed center.

    You can spend about 2 hours here. This place has a series of artwork. I was amazed by the transformer at the back of an outdoor theater! You can find the famous luggage and upside down house here!  more »

    Awesome place to visit in Kaohsiung, lots of cool artworks and different sculptures to take pictures of. Definitely a must visit here. There's a huge Bumblebee, if you're a fan of transformers you'll like it here. Good hangout spot on the weekend and they also have different shops around that you can check out. The train ride is cute too.

    A must visit if you are in the Kaohsiung area. There are many pieces of art on display here and during the afternoon and evenings you can find vendors selling hand crafted stuff from coffee to jewelry! When I went (during a holiday) there was even a live band playing. It was very lively at night. Note that there are 2 pier areas that have art and vendors and they are a few block from each other. Visit both!

    Has always been one of my favourite places in Kaohsiung. They've built a light rail through it recently. Can't walk around some of the places I use to.

    Great space. Cool art pieces. Lots of photo ops. If you're going with young children, there is a mini train tour they offer!
