Kaohsiung is Taiwan’s second largest city and one of the largest container ports in the world. Kaohsiung has recently undergone a dramatic transformation from industrial sprawl to modern must-go. From a polluted industrial center of two million people, today Kaohsiung is a green city of lush parks, waterside cafes, art galleries and museums. You will definitely fall in love with Kaohsiung from the minute you arrive here!
You will be picked up at your hotel or the port in Kaohsiung at 9:30 AM. You will visit Takao British consulate residence, a lovely red-brick architecture that was built in 1879 to serve as the British consul's abode. Stop by the Wude Hall that was completed in 1924 and originally used as a martial-arts training center for police and youth.
You will also visit the Rose Mary Catholic Church. The church is the first Catholic church in Taiwan and one of the top 3 holy churches in Asia. Later on go to the popular Pier 2 Art Center that was once an abandoned and forgotten warehouse buried in history, and now a must-go for any visitors. Don't miss the MRT Central Park and Formosa Boulevard Station that is ranked in the top 15 most beautiful train stations in the world by the famous travel magazine “BootsnAll.” Experience the oil-paper umbrella and clay as the traditional Hakka hand-craft and the beautiful sunset at Sizihwan. When the tour ends, you will be transferred back to your hotel or Kaohsiung Port.
