“No lotus seen”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

There is no lotus seen during visit, perhaps due to World Games 2009. Only people fishing at the lake, but there are temples around. Visit the Confucius Temple nearby, and you can see the Dragon and Tiger Pagodas and Taoist God Statue from far away.

“Just a Vast Lake”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

Maybe it was wrong timing when I visited, the lake was empty - no lotus in sight. Anyhow, it was a relaxing to sit by the lake and enjoyed the local fruits. However, the pagodas over the lake were great art pieces constructed with very good craftsmanship.

“A nice place to relax in the city center”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2011

It's worth to spend at least half a day touring around the so called "Lotus Lake". There are a few attraction spots around the lake and you should not missed it.

I wanted to ride on the Amphibian Bus but unfortunately the ticket was all sold out! Do remember to book earlier and check the operating hours and day. The bus will take you around the city short trip and back to the lake and into the lake itself. Should be a fun ride!

I rented a bicycle since I couldn't manage to get the amphibian bus ticket. Cycling around the lake was fun too. You can see local people singing oldies, horse police along the way and visit the attraction spots without walking tiredly.

The rental is not expensive, if you purchased the amphibian bus ticket, you can also use the bycicle service for FREE!

A must visit place in Kaohsiung.
