The smaller of the two twin pagoda sites, these are only a couple of storeys high, but are linked by a dragon that forms a tunnel between the two. There is some tacky but interesting art on the tunnel walls and forms the beginning of a walkway out on to the lake to another pagoda. Worth a stop, but make... More

Bright and lurid colours abound here but it all feels a little tacky. Fun to walk through the mouth of the dragon and come out the other side though. The structure itself isn't particularly special and a short visit is sufficient as you walk around the lake.

It's free! The walls in the dragon tunnel had images of Guanyin dropping some mercy on folks. Also there was a table where one could leave some money & take some Buddhist literature, which was pretty cool. The pagoda wasn't particularly fantastic, but being so far out on the lake, it does offer some interesting photography options. Across the street... More

I loved walking in to the pavilions through the huge dragon. There's so much to see inside - it's a riot of colour.

One of the Disney-world type temples at the Lotus Pond. Visually entertaining, the type of place that makes you smile and feel younger. This is probably my favorite temple at the Lotus Pond. The lotus surrounding this temple are stunning and we loved the turtles, ducks and fish surrounding the temple.

Also located on Lotus Lake, this too is worth a visit and is within walking distance to other exhibits on Lotus Lake.

This is part of the Lotus Pond with lots of temples and things to see. I was there in march and only few tourists. You can easily spend half a day there. Everything is free.

This is a rather fun 10-minute diversion. You can walk through a dragon. You enter thru the mouth and walk through a well-lighted, highly decorated tunnel and exit thru the tail of the dragon. Fun, amusing. A 10-minute diversion. Located on Lotus Pond near the Dragon & Tiger pagodas.

We have been told that this lake would be one of the highlights in kaosiung, but it was very disappointing. All new stuff and very touristic. You can skip this from itinerary.

This is a great place to visit with mum and dad and all the relatives if you already live in Taiwan and if you are just a tourist yourself, go there, it makes for a pleasant 2 hour trip. Take your camera the area is very photogenic. The Dragon and Tiger themselves make great photo opportunities, as is the old... More
