Very touristic Lotus Lake

We have been told that this lake would be one of the highlights in kaosiung, but it was very disappointing. All new stuff and very touristic. You can skip this from itinerary.

This is a great place to visit with mum and dad and all the relatives if you already live in Taiwan and if you are just a tourist yourself, go there, it makes for a pleasant 2 hour trip. Take your camera the area is very photogenic. The Dragon and Tiger themselves make great photo opportunities, as is the old... More

This is a very simple & small tourist attraction with little things to see, the lotus pond, the Dragon & Tiger Pagodas. You enter from the Dragon mouth and come out from the Tiger mouth for good luck. Along the path, you could see the illustrations on the 18 Levels of Hell. You can also choose to climb up to... More

Our visit to the Lotus Pond was great. The dragon and tiger pagodas were worth the visit and learning about the good luck and bad luck involved with our entry and exit. It was interesting to see the many school children, in uniforms, learning their heritage etc. There is a lot of walking to see all the sights on and... More

This pavilion is pretty but really there wasn't much going on. It is really just a photo opportunity with some beautiful colourful back drops. We spent ample time actually stuck at the turtle pond just at the entrance of the pavilion. There were so many of them and watching them climb all over one another and knocking each other off...

A visit here is great for photos and light hearted experience. The lanterns and pavilions are cool. Plants and water are pretty too. It's unique and bright! Walk around to see the sights in the area too.

As with Dragon and Tiger Tower, this place didn't offer me anything religious or spiritual-wise. It is, however, an attraction that can be enjoyed if taken lightly. The tunnel through the dragon is very cool and offered some really great photo opportunities. Unfortunately, the long bridge over the water to a smaller temple/shrine was closed as there was some ongoing... More

During my previous trip to Taiwan, i visited Kaoshiung to stop at Fo Guang Shan. My local guide recommended me to visit the pavillions during our short 3d2n stay at Kaoshiung. The pavillions itself are pretty okay for tourist attraction, but for a seasoned traveller, the wow factor just isn't there. However that does not imply that you should write... More

This place is not a must-go especially if you're visiting for a few days only. The structures are not that finely made. Nothing much to see also. The pagodas are under renovation, so tourists are not allowed to enter. But the tour guide told us that if you were to enter the pagodas, remember to enter through the dragon and... More

We live near the Lotus Pond and we often enjoy walking around the various pagodas in the afternoon. If you begin with the Dragon and Tiger Pagodas, this is the next structure when walking toward the Confucius Temple. This pavilion is very nice for taking pictures on the long walkway out into the pond. We also enjoy buying food from... More
