WHAT WE LOVE

Kaohsiung, Taiwan's largest port city, has been gaining popularity as the next top destination in the country. There's so much to see in this city of blooming modernity and culture. Visit the Lotus Pond and take a picture at the dragon and tiger pavillions while running through their mouths for good luck! Don't skip a visit to the Pier 2 Art District filled with sculptures, paintings, and murals reflecting the history and tradition of Kaohsiung. Afterwards, why not make a stop at one of the world's most beautiful train stations, Formosa Boulevard, and marvel at its ceiling made out of stained glass.
