“Nothing much”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

The Dome of Light is nothing much but it may be worth a visit only if you intend to transit using the metro. Some people were carolling in the dome. Quite a nice experience.

“Colorful!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

We were staying at T Hotel, and so The Dome of Light was just a short walk away. The dome is very colorful and makes for great pictures!

“The nicest MRT station ever!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

This is the beautiful artwork at the Formosa KMRT station. This is the cross over station for the 2 lines in Kaohsiung and the one you use for Liuhe Night Market, so you're bound to get off here if your in Kaohsiung.
It's was done by an Italian Artist and really is very beautiful.

“Dazzling Dome that Mesmerizes Your Emotions”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

The Dome of Light really makes the Formosa Boulevard Station a really unique station in Kaohsiung (or even Taiwan). To see the artwork, I especially took time to get off the MRT for a glimpse of this landmark.

Again, once you exit the MRT gate (the exit I use led to one of the hallways, so there’s a little distance to go), you can just ask anyone you see and they’ll probably point you in the right direction.

As you can see, the not-so-tall walkway immediately opens up to a huge chamber as you approach the dome area. You know you’re getting there when you see those two gigantic pillars.

Depending on how you feel, you can spend quite a while examining the details of the art piece (I was too busily trying to take pictures).

If you’re lucky, there might be a street performer or two entertaining the audience in the area.

“Nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Given the small number of attractions in the city, the dome is the most colourful photo to take home, besides it is on the way to the night market - so, don't miss it and take your opportunity to take colourful photos. I would rather recommend the Pier-2 art district near the Harbour for a nice stroll.
