Beautiful dome at the main entrance of Formosa KRT station. There are daily lighting shows daily at fixed timings but we did not wait to see it. Good for photo taking.

It's just a part of the MRT station with the light displays, nothing spectacular. Not worth a special trip but if you happen to pass by, can just take a look.

I could have stayed here a long time watching the light shows and starring at the roof. It is worth going to this station to look at this.

Unless you are on the way to Liouhe六合night market, or you near by the area. Can drop by to take a look or snap few picture. Nothing much, 5 mins and it's done.

I have been living in Kaohsiung City as an exchange station for 3 months and have always took the subway and passed by this station but never alighted. Finally got the chance to alight to see its beauty. The architecture and colours are really brilliant! A very nice place to capture nice photographs.

with a little bit of relaxing music you feel like in a fairy tale: a dwarf under a huge glass mushroom with beautifully illuminated illustrations. you can't miss it when you change MRT lines at Formosa Boulevard
