This is hardly an attraction...just an interesting stained glass ceiling with strange pictures in a subway station. If you are transferring stations have a quick look, if not put in the effort to see other more worthwhile things in the city.

The Dome is really artistic although I think Dome of Colours would sound better than Dome of Lights as the place was rather dark while the overall theme of the Dome was really about colours. The air conditioning could have been better. The places was rather hot and stuffy.

Ok We didn't understand what all the fuss was about. Sorry to say this but it is only that we accidentally walked by but seriously if you have time left I wouldn't just travel all the way there to see it. I mean how can this compare to the big buddha it is definitely a zero compared to that. This... More

The only interchange station in kao Hsiung. This is a Must See. There will be signage to tell you which spot will allow you to get the nicest photo. After that, take exit 11 and head to liuhe night market.

The Dome of Light is a huge stained glass ceiling at the Kaohsiung Metro System's Formosa Boulevard Station's concourse. This station is an interchange between the red and yellow metro lines. Kaohsiung's famous Liuhe night market.

The coloured glass did much to brighten up the station's look and feel so it was a pleasant experience to pass by (when you go to or leave Liu He Night Market). I wouldn't drop by just to take a look, but it did brighten my journey somewhat having passed it by.

It's a very nice attraction that attached in a train station. I was staying at a hotel near to this station, and so I have to pass by this place almost everyday to take the train. You can actualy take a lot of nice pictures here.

It's just a pillar with colourful lights in it. Nothing impressive especially for a person who've been in Moscow metro!

If you make a special journey to see "The Dome of Light", you will find yourself questioning the point in visiting any other tourist attractions in Kaohsiung. It is simply a "not as plain as all the other stations" station. This is no Sistine Chapel. Wanted to give a low rating because it is such a non-event place but the... More
