Nice detour
Dec 2019 • Family
We visited the area after the Ten Drum performance which theatre is in the same area.
Key attractions are the former processing plant with exhibits detailing its history; old locomotives and wagons and the shop selling ice cream and other products made by Tai Sugar.
To travel around, one could consider renting a bicycle from a kiosk located within R22a metro station.
To reach there, take metro red line. Journey is about 25min from Formosa station.

Interesting if you are a lover of industrial railways

Easy to reach - turn left on exiting the Caiotou Sugar Refinery MRT station and there it is. The factory and other buildings are not very exciting but there are dozens of old diesel locomotives to see and explore - inside sheds and in the open air. There are some old wagons and some passenger carrying vehicles but unfortunately I was there on a day when trains were running. It’s free to enter.

The supermarket sells its local delicacy in volume, a perfect place to buy goods only found in the area

Not really worth it
Jan 2019 • Solo
As a solo traveller I try to find the joy and interest in everywhere I visit. This place just didn’t do it for me. It’s an old sugar factory that they’ve opened up to the public. There’s not much more to it than that. There’s very little in English and I probably managed about 40 minutes before I got back on the MRT!

the factory itself is not much, but the art around is nice. The premises are quite huge, there are bike for rent if you don't want to walk much

One of the better attractions in Kaohsiung
Sep 2018 • Solo
Eating is in relation to other attractions around Kaohsiung. I came here a bit late in the afternoon. Best time to visit is in the early morning (9:30am) or early afternoon (eg 2pm) most exhibits are closed by 4:30pm

Old sugar factory in a large art-themed park
Jan 2018 • Couples
The old sugar factory is the cornerstone to this park and is fun to visit - although a little daunting that you can roam freely in the factory. But the whole complex offers a lot more, including additional historical buildings, a drum studio, sugar museum (in Chinese), art studios, and lots of food and snack vendors (including a delicious steamed bun place by the station).

good value to visit 很值得一遊的地方
Sep 2017 • Family
factory is pretty huge.If you like industrial and trains, this is a cool spot to visit,but there is not much English guide , but you can walking round an old train station and dock yard and there is a lot of public art,it is very cool.

someone will say, here is nothing to see and there is no English guide, so it is worst place to visit.i will say it is depends on what is your interest and travel attitudes. i have been travel over 40 nations, sometimes they only have local language,but for me is fine. of course they have English guide is better,you can know more about it, but i will say is still value to visit.

糖廠範圍很大,有許多機械及火車,很值得參觀,如果你是火車迷或喜歡機械,同埋這裡有許多用機械造成的藝術品,很有意思的.雖然管理有點散亂,以及保養不太好,但是這是一個值得參觀的地方,你會感受到當年這裡的繁華,以及有趣的機械與火車.

還是那句,是否值得一遊,真的視乎你旅行的心態,你是否喜歡這類東西,或者你很怕戶外,怕蚊,...那不會是你的選擇.相反,你是一個喜歡睇唔同事物的人,那是很值得來的.

Only for the Chinese speaking old machinery buffs
May 2017 • Couples
We went expecting to see the old sugar mill with information about sugar processing and the history of the sugar industry and demise. It may have been there but there was very little information in English. The people at the entrance gate were more interested in letting you know about the drumming display than the Sugar Museum
