Tours by Locals is the company we used for a small group tour when we visited the port of Kaohsiung. Tom L., a native of Kaohsiung, took pride in his city of birth and was very knowledgeable about the places we visited.  Since the majority in our group were Christians, Tom L. did is best to help us understand Buddhist teachings and practice. We visited the Dragon and Tiger Pagodas located at Lotus Pond and learned one had to enter the dragon’s mouth and depart from the tiger’s mouth. By doing this, it is believe one will reverse one’s fortune from bad to good. We visited a Confucius Temple across the street from Lotus Pond and Tom shared the differences in the Buddhist, Taoist and Confucius religions. We learned the meaning of the eight pagodas at the Fo Guan Shan complex. We ended our tour at the beautiful Love River. Tom L. is a good tour guide and I recommend him if your travels bring you to Kaohsiung. We had a great day in Kaohsiung.
