Dome of Light – KMRT Formosa Boulevard Station:
The transfer station between the Red and Orange Lines, the Station is a work of art both inside and out, the 4 station platform structures made of sheets of glass covering steel platforms represent “praying for longevity”, in order to commemorate the Formosa Incident which happened here. The “Dome of Light”, was completed by the Italian artist Narcissus Quagliata over 4 and a half years. Made of glass, colored paint and lights, it represents the birth, growth, glory and dimming of the cosmos and was named the second most beautiful subway station in the world by the American travel website BootsnAll.
The Pier-2 Art Center:
Situated in the basin No. 3 of Kaohsiung Port, it has been made into a unique open art space, providing artists and students with an environment in which to express themselves, and has already become Kaohsiung's most popular cultural spot. All kinds of art activities are held irregularly in the District, bringing a rich artistic air to the port metropolis of Kaohsiung, and also bringing a new tide of southern art in Kaohsiung. The western railway line, which previously brought goods to the docks, has now become Kaohsiung's busiest cycling trail, and amazing works of art await discovery in the District's public spaces. Visitors can also go to the Hamasen Railway Cultural Park and witness how the passage of time has affected Kaohsiung's first railway station.
Sizihwan Bay is known for its beautiful sunset and natural reefs, and the area includes scenic spots like the Siziwan Beach, Seaside Park, and the former British Consulate at Takao. You can enjoy the view of the sea, or gaze over Kaohsiung Port. The inscription on the gate of the Shaochuan artillery position, currently classes as a third-grade national heritage site reads “Kaohsiung Town North Gate”. It was built at the same time as Cihou (Qihou) Fort, to cover different fields of fire. Today, the cannons are gone- only 3 gun emplacements remain for people of the future to wonder about.
