Although I cannot remember what the Lotus Pond was like when I first visited more than twenty years ago, I am pretty sure that it was not as picturesque and popular as it is today. Be sure to visit the most famous Dragon and Tiger Pagodas when you arrive. Enter the dragon's pagoda through its snout and exit the tiger's pagoda through its mouth for good luck. Climb, if you can, to the top (6th) floor of each pagoda and look around the entire area from above. Take an easy and nice walk around the pond and visit the dozen nearby temples that add a religious touch to the area. The views of the pagodas in the pond and the mountains against the sunset are notably beautiful. The Lotus Pond is surely an attraction that you must visit when in Kaohsiung!
While visiting the Lotus Pond to see the temples at the shores, this one cannot be missed. It's a spectacular structure, well maintained and extremely colourful. Loved the views from nearly every side of the Lotus Pond. The entrance and bridge towards the statue are fantastic.
Very nice walk around the lake which blends into western and eastern culture. The tower beside the lake gives a gorgeous view for the whole area. Some local performance in the open theatre.
We walked down the street to visit the temples. We came across this gigantic statue. My friends explained who this god was and I found the whole thing interesting. There's a fortune telling machine (think Taiwanese "Big") for those who can read Chinese.
So much to see especially if you like to take it easy and stroll along taking everything in around you. The Dragon and Tiger Pagodas are especially popular and get very crowded but all of them are worth the visit. There are places to get food along the way and of course trinkets to remember your visit but what we enjoyed most was walking out to the pagodas and sitting back to enjoy the views! There are benches, etc... to take a breather and great lookout points! Must see attraction!
