Good for photos, one of the must go attraction in Kaohsiung. Besides this there is nothing special in the station. It is quite dark, some musical presenters might have some performance there.

I did not expect to a tourism spot inside an mrt station. But it's still interesting, especially when it is not too crowded so we can see whole pictures.

This is a very nice train station to visit if you're in the area. No need to make a special trip to see it though. It's the interchange station between the Red Line and Orange Line and near the night markets so you will be there at some point anyway. The station itself is very new and clean, almost too... More

I have been through here several times, but never bothered to wait for the light show. After reading the review by some here, I went back to attend the 3pm light show. The overhead glass murals are nicely painted by an Italian artist, and as others have said, it is impressive to see. However, I was quite disappointed with the... More

This is metro station. The only reason you have to be here is if you are using the metro to go somewhere else. That's it. As metro stations go, it's nice but don't go out of your way to see this.

It is at the Formosa Boulevard station and is meant to a perfect place to take a few selfies. Click a few pictures and move on to the night market I believe.

Love the amazing art on the dome. Saw many students taking photo for their graduation there. Love the vending machine which I bought a hologram postcard from.

The station is nice, and the dome is really unique for a train station. There are light shows planned daily and the schedule can be found on KMRT's website. It's good to stop by before heading to Liuhe night market, but note that the MRT exit to the night market from this station is up a flight of stairs with... More
