Visited as part of a tour of Kaohsiung. A bit of a walk from where our coach could park. But on level ground. A very busy spot, just had to move with the crowd! Walked in through the Dragons mouth and up the Dragon/Tiger towers to see the fab view over the lake, then out through the Tigers mouth. Walked... More

Its all that others have said and more, we walked from the MRT a little way and others may prefer to take the bus. We had picnic on the quite side of the lake and watched model sail boats and enjoyed the colourful outlook across the lake. All the attractions are great as others have said, all worth the time...

Lotus Pond is what English travel brochures in Kaohsiung call it and it is a must see attraction of Kaohsiung. There are a number of massive pavilions and pagodas set in the lake, which you can walk into, amazing in terms of art and religious history. There are also many temples around the lake that are exceptionally beautiful. At the... More

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... More

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.

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... More

july was superhot and arriving in the heat was terrible. the walk on bridge like structures was nice to the middle of the lake where there is a nice breeze to rest. worth a visit but a little far from the subway and reaching there requires a taxi ride and back

Weel, that was the best place we have found in Kaohsiung! The Lian Lake, also known as Lotus Pond, is very big. It is has a wonderful sightseeing. It is has many trees and is used as shelter by the local population in the summer (when the temperatures are very high). It is also popular by the ones who practice... More

I have just moved to Kaohsiung, and I live about 5 miles from this attraction, more commonly called Lotus Pond. There is both a walking and a bike path surrounding the pond and there are plenty of attractions to see. There are multiple temples, some of which you can climb to the top and get a view. There are the... More

Enjoyed seeing the lake and the temples, although there isn't much in the way of history here. Also saw a cool wakeboarding set-up with wires. Costs $500 NTD for a half day, they provide the equipment, you bring a bathing suit. Apparently they are there every weekend. It looked like a really good time! Note: if you take the bus... More
