    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.

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.

    Driver - Hao Qing

    It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience with Mr Chen. He was very informative guide and driver which was more than what we expected. He shared with us on the local culture and helped us take great shots as well which were an added bonus. A recommended guide for a day trip in Kaohsiung.

    Driver - Allen

    Allen was AWESOME!! He was very courteous, very knowledgeable, and genuinely had our best interest in mind. He acted and presented our tour from a flexible and “what do you want to do” approach. He went the extra mile a couple times that wasn’t expected. He took extra time to make sure we were comfortable at different stages of the tour. Our tour would have been nowhere near as enjoyable if it weren’t for Allen! Allen is highly recommended :)
