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

The location is convenient. It is situated at the Formosa Blvd Station, so if you're taking the MRT to Liouhe Night Market it is a good place to look around. You'll be done in 3 minutes though :-) so don't plan a day trip to see this.

This piece of art probably makes this Metro Station one of the nicest in the world but keep in mind that this is a ceiling and once you have looked at it for 10-15 minutes , it is time to go elsewhere ! We were there around lunch time on a week day and there must have been no more... More
