    There is actually two parts - the older Monastery and the newer Great Buddha Land otherwise known as Foguangshan Museum. Most people just visit the Great Buddha Land but you really need to allocate one whole day to visit both.

    There's actually numerous museum galleries including permanent and temporary galleries. There are also some good eating places.

    We went to this area in the evening to walk around the pond and check out the temples and pagodas. Got some nice pictures of the structures on the water and checked out the market between attractions. Market can get busy and it is at times difficult to walk around the market and near the pond. There were quite a few birds in the lotus plants and on the banks to see as well. Bathrooms near the pagodas and there were some mosquitos out.

    We had the afternoon on the island. Had a motorised bike ride so we could cover more ground. Not a lot to really do here but well worth an afternoon or morning. Had lunch at the Sunset Pub which was nice. It was extremely hazy the day we were there so the view from the lighthouse was not great and reduced the overall atmosphere of the place. The beach was clean and water seemed clean enough to swim in. As an Australian I am always disappointed with beaches in Asia, the black sand is fine and soft and a novelty. Water was warm but no waves, so great for little children.

    City of Kaohsiung designs along the river band beautifully. Nice facilities for citizens can relax walking next to the ocean side whenever in day time or night time.

    This is a beautiful art installation at Formosa Boulevard Station. It is worth a special trip just to take pictures and enjoy the atmosphere.

    A very convenient ferry for everyone to go back and forth CiJin with lots of available schedule. You can sit at 2nd floor to enjoy the sea view and breeze around the port. Good to travel with kids by taking the ferry. Have fun here.

    This is one of the biggest science museums in the world. You will probably need a few visits to visit everything. Highly recommended.

    We loved the multicolored ceiling art, though it wasn’t entirely obvious what the artist’s intention was. It’s hard to appreciate its full scope at concourse level. The station itself is well-signed and spotless.

    Since when we have trumpet tree here in Weiwuying park? It would be very pleasant to sit at the top of the outdoor theatre and overlook the people, dogs, birds, and parrots gather together in Saturday afternoon. Bring yourself a cup of coffee, sandwiches and cakes to soak in the southern Taiwan afternoon. The right place for those who is sick of being home whole day and escape from the CoVID-19. It might get a bit crowded on weekends but you can always find yourself a quiet place in the park and lie down, listen to live music played by the local artists.

    While not really that amazing, there's some good inexpensive food. The papaya milk and sausage is quite good. Not really a place for shopping but there's some clothes and soft toys sold. There's also a decent anime figure shop hidden in a corner.

    Sadly, there was so much to see yet we had so little time. Make sure you spare 2-3 hours going around the place if you are an art buff. The garden outside is also amazing. Do not skip this when you are in Kaohsiung. I wish to go back and spend more time here.

    There are two entrances and both require a climb to the residence. At the base there is the office for the Consul and residence is above. Both are big on the gift shop and selling tea and souvenirs. The building is restored, but there is nothing to actually show how people lived, just rooms without furniture. The cool breeze does make this an interesting place to be in the heat. there is a good view from here.
