What To Expect

As one of the most venerated Buddhist sites in Taiwan, the Fo Guang Shan Buddhish Memorial Centre cannot be missed. You are greeted by a colossal Buddha statue upon climbing the stairs towards the centre. One of the most fascinating aspects of Fo Guang Shan is that it is home to a relic of Gautama Buddha, the founder of the Buddhist faith. On leaving the temple, the surrounding cluster of lively stalls selling souvenirs and scriptures is well worth a roam. After an afternoon at Fo Guang Shan, cool off by the Cheng Ching Lake, with scenic sights all around such as the chateau of one of Taiwan's former presidents that looks over the waters, and Phu Quoc Island situated within the lake. Make sure to walk across the Bridge of Nine Turns to get breathtaking views of Cheng Ching Lake and its surroundings.

    This is by far the most memorable part of our trip. We enjoyed our visit here and we are very happy to have booked this activity with klook.

    The driver, Charlie, was professional, friendly and helpful throughout the trip. We booked for FoGuangShan tour but it was closed when were there. We were disappointed why we were not informed when we made the booking. Charlie immediately called his company n came up with alternative plans. Although disappointed but we had no choice either. The credits should go to Charlie for ensuring us the alternative would b good if not better. We did had a wonderful tour visiting places we hv not heard. Hope Klook will look into this and hope it will not happen again. I believe Klook should check the opening dates of each attraction to avoid making yr customer feeling disappointed again. Nonetheless pls help me to thank Charlie for his good job done.

    When the air is still foggy, this is when the local and the elder gather around in ChengCing lake for exercise and TaiChi. Walk around the lake and the woods and enjoy the tranquility.

    It is a quite and serene park that's great for quiet stroll and relaxation. The former residence of Chiang is opened and can be visited. You can also rent a bike to move within the park. There is also an aquarium located within the park. It was the highlight of the park. It was amazing to see so many live nautilus swimming in the tanks. Like most attractions in Taiwan, this park is in need of upkeep, and it was good to see on-going improvement and repair works.

    Really a nice place to visit. ... Especially just after Chinese New year holidays, there is fireworks at night, lighting, lantern displays and performances. Kids will love to be there as being in a mini Disneyland.

    Great architecture and great smiles from everyone you meet! A walk around makes you feel peace and there are a lot of Buddhist workshops from time to time. Fell free to have a visit even if you're not a Buddhist, many guarantees that you won't regret it!

    This is a working monastery with lots of male and female monks. There are many wonderful temple buildings and lots of steps - you have to walk up to many different levels to see everything but it is well worthwhile. Alongside the steps ate lovely flowers - different shades of bougainvillea and other tropical plants. In the main building near the top there are 3 superb brass Buddha statues. At the bottom, near the parking, there is a pretty pond with statues and flowers. To one side, high above the parking area, there is an impressive standing Buddha statue which is worth the walk if you have time. Usually visited along side the Buddhist centre which is also very scenic.

    The tour guide Mr. Chen is very punctual, has a full understanding of the story behind the attractions, the introduction is also very detailed. Finally, I visited Kaohsiung Central Library. Today we have more knowledge and understanding of Kaohsiung. The library has a hollow garden with a special design. There are many places in the museum where citizens and students can sit down and read a book or study. The environment is quiet and no children are crying. Really good!
