This place has interesting rock formation and is worth 1 to 2 hours of your time (longer if you do the longer walking trail). There is adequate parking and toilet facilities. There is a fair amount of stairs to climb but if a 6 year old kid can do it, I think it should qualify as family friendly.

On the drive to Tianliao, we passed by a lot more photogenic opportunities of these moon-like stones. Upon reaching there, we were less than impressed. The mountains were far. Perhaps it was the timing we were there (5.30pm), and the sun was setting and the coloured lights coming on but we felt it wasn't worth the climb up. Still a good spot if you don't get to pass any of these interestingly shaped cliffs on the way!

Unique sand texture and mountains. The sand was powdery and very light such that it flies when you step and walk on it. An eye opener ! Recommended for a visit

The geography of the Badlands is worthwhile visiting. The park is well maintained and fairly easy to walk--about 1-2 hours at a very leisurely pace. It takes about an hour by bus from the Ganshan MRT station.Transfer to the 高雄客運 Red 70 Bus for a faster ride to Moon World, but R70 is less frequent. Alternatively, you can take a local tour bus 港都客運092-SH which runs every 45 minutes. Just ask people at the MRT station. The local tour bus is NT$30, you can get off at other scenic spots, such as the dm, a temple, or ecological area, and get back on with the same ticket. You can also use the same ticket to return to the Ganshan MRT station.

I stayed in a nearby resort, Spring Hill Resort, and did not plan to visit the area, since it's only 7 mins away from the resort, so, I went without much of an expectation. It turned out to be a pleasant walk, esp from the trail up in the mountain, you can have a good view of the whole area. It's all natural and it looks like a place that is in outterspace.

I would recommend you to drop by if you are around the area.

The distance from tainan city to moon-world is shorter than expected. The roads smooth ,not hilly. The best view of moon-world I found was at "308 Highland". From the highland you could see the whole landscape, layers from layers its like an endless rustic world.

Tianliao Moon World's distinctive mudstone is ocean-floor sediment that was raised by tectonic uplift. Following years of erosion by the area's waterways, such as the Erren River, the mudstone landscape took on its current appearance. Moon World is a result of the mudstone features being weakly lithfied aquitards. Each time it rains, the surface absorbs most of the moisture and expands as a result. Then, when the sun comes out, the surface cracks up because of its dryness. Repeated wetting and drying compromises the surface integrity of the mudstone. Downpours cause landslides, thus forming exposed ridges and gullies that support vegetation only sporadically.

Moon world is a “badland”, as nothing can be grown in this area and it reminds people of the surface of the moon. The land itself was formerly undersea and was pushed upwards; rain and other erosion helped shape it into what it is today. There are a few “moon worlds” around the area and the one in Tianliao only being one of them. According to the bus driver, there is nothing there – "a place where even ducks don’t want to lay their eggs". However, there has been 'improvements' to the area, so now there are pathways, a large pond (that gets dried up from time to time), and various resting places.

I took red 70 there from gangshan mrt station and it's not very frequent but much better than before. The people at information desk was also really helpful. One lady, who was a volunteer but not working that day, even gave me a small tour on the moon world and brought me to nearby the volcanic mud pool 月世界泥火山.

In general, it was a nice way to spend the day. It's a fair distance from Kaohsiung and the closest town would be Alian 啊連 ( it use to be called Alien) . It's a nice alternative sightseeing spot if visitors are staying in Kaohsiung for longer periods of time.

An interesting geographical phenomenon that makes for some fairly good photo opportunities but has been ruined by so-called improvements such as the elevated walkway and the concrete pavilion. The natural aesthetics of the area has gone, it's rather like a theme park now.

If you have your own transport then head further up road 184 close to a place called Caoshan for a more natural view.

If you are spending a long time in Kaohsiung then maybe come out to this area, but if you are trying to create an itinerary of a short trip in Taiwan I'd give this one a miss.

We visited this place on 5 Dec 2013. Had our lunch at the village before heading to the Tianliao Moon World. The village is very quite as accordingly to our guide it is not their travelling season. By direct translation, the place is named "Day Moon World". The street of the village is named as "Moon Earth Street". It has a unique view, just like mini Grand Canyon.
