“Best site in Kaohsiung”

Lianchi (Lotus) Lake
Ranked #7 of 352 things to do in Kaohsiung
Attraction details
Reviewed January 22, 2013

I'm shocked that this isn't higher up on the attractions list. I spent the day here with my husband and it was a very relaxing and interesting walk around the lake. I noticed that a lot of people wrote reviews that there were no Lotuses, but in early December 2012, there were plenty of them. The coolest part were all of the temples, though. They are very different from what I usually see. My only complaint is that there were not very many restaurants near by. Make sure you go on a full stomach.

Very pleasant and interesting. The temples on the lake are modern and quite brash. Those in the streets nearby are older and worth looking at.

Dont be fooled by the name of the place. There is no lotus in sight, but a calm lake where I saw some people do water sports such as wakeboarding and water skiing.

There are many temples surrounding the lake with magnificent structures, great for the photo-enthusiasts or those into the Chinese/ Buddhist/ Taoist culture.

The lake isnt too large and you can easily stroll around the lake in about an hour or two depending on how fast you go. There's also some nice food places nearby, just ask the locals. On weekends, they have special cultural buses that start from Zuoying HSR station that take you around the lake for $50NT per person.

There is no lotus seen during visit, perhaps due to World Games 2009. Only people fishing at the lake, but there are temples around. Visit the Confucius Temple nearby, and you can see the Dragon and Tiger Pagodas and Taoist God Statue from far away.

Maybe it was wrong timing when I visited, the lake was empty - no lotus in sight. Anyhow, it was a relaxing to sit by the lake and enjoyed the local fruits. However, the pagodas over the lake were great art pieces constructed with very good craftsmanship.
