    Lotus Pond

    This scenic area combines nature, architecture, and culture. The pond itself is filled with lotus plants which blooms every spring with pretty pink flowers. Nearby are three sets of impressive architecture, the most famous of which is the Dragon and Tiger Pagodas. Located near the water, the twin pagodas as well as the unique entrance and exit of the pagodas (you will enter through the mouth of the dragon and exit through the mouth of the tiger) make for the perfect photo opportunity. The lesser known Ciji Temple and Spring and Autumn Pavilions are spectacular as well.

    Fo Guang Shan Buddha Museum

    Fo Guang Shan is a huge complex of numerous Buddhist temples. Not only is it a place of worship, it is also a great place for visitors to learn more about Buddhism and its ties to Taiwanese culture. Even if you are not a religious person, the beautiful architecture of the temples and statues will surely impress you.

    Again no mistake made in choosing Ownrides for our trip to Kenting. Mr. Xing (豹哥) was punctual to pick us up from hotel even though he informed us that he was caught in a traffic jam. We had good chat during the ride. His friendly and humorous nature made our ride lively and enjoyable. We are satisfied for having covered the booked itinerary and with his detour to additional viewing points made our trip even more pleasant. 豹哥 totally deserves to be a 5 stars (highest rated) Ownrides private car driver. Very professional in his job and a highly recommended private driver to engage.

    Mr Xing was responsible for 'ferrying' 2 physically challenged passengers and 2 others for the trip. He picked us up on time and accompanied us around the sights and ensured the physically challenged people are able to move around at a comfortable pace. At narrow street alleys, he drove the car slowly so that we could see the sights n make purchases at the stalls. He made good recommendations for things to eat and buy. He was also able to accommodate requests to make small detours for us to make purchases at places not listed in the itinerary. In all, Mr Xing is a driver who scored top ratings in all aspects one would expect of a private car driver of Ownrides

    Joy is very cheerful and actively communicating with us before we met her. Her car is very nice and spacious. She brought us to a halal restaurant in Kaohsiung, took pictures for us, waited patiently for us when one of us got car sick during the winding road to Alishan and had to make a few stops along the way. We had a great time touring with Joy.
