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.

  • I wanted to go to a lot of tracks, but after that, there were many warehouses along KLRT, and there were a lot of cute shops. I think that you can have a very good time if you slowly take a day or a half.

  • The evolution of art and inconceivable, so that the original idle warehouse has a different appearance and atmosphere. There are suitable for the United States to take pictures of the paint opium and installation art. There are also exhibition activities suitable for wenqing. The park is large and can consume an afternoon's time. The traffic is also very convenient.

  • Definitely a place to go see if you love art and trains. Their are many beautiful art paintings on the side of building and lots of steel sculptures. There are shops that sell pretty unique things and there is a tiny market in the middle of the street that you can explore. It was really interesting to see that you can take a short train ride, which turned out to be a ride a mini train. Really cute and fun. Further down there is a big open area with train tracks and sculptures are place randomly for you to take some cool photos. It’s a really nice place to explore and enjoy the are and chilled relaxed atmosphere.
  • Pier 2 Art Center is a collection of galleries, shops, exhibitions and cafe's located at the old harbour of Kaohsiung. Everything is located in the old warehouses that used to store all the goods that came into the harbour. You can buy 1 ticket to visit several exhibitions in the park. Some exhibitions and the nearby Railway Museum require a separate ticket. The art center is a great way to spend an afternoon to flex your creative mind, but also to explore the many craft shops that are housed inside the warehouses. Outside there is also a lot of street art that are sometimes hidden away to be discovered by people who take enough time to look around them. This is definitely my favorite place in Kaohsiung.
  • Many stores gather a special feeling around there, that's a combination of creative, easy-going, and clean atmosphere. All travel guidebooks give you directions and maps, however, true feeling or enjoyment must start by your steps. Come and see to discover the new Kaohsiung.
  • Great spot to visit when in Kaohsiung. Slow during daytime but gets busier weekends. Various nice artworks go appreciate. Specialty shops to check out with very unique items. Seems like there are further renovations/development going on so looking forward to seeing it again in the future.
  • This is kind of like the Hongdae of Kaohsiung. Very artsy and creative stuff here. Highly recommended for tourists. Hit up this joint!
