Second time to this city! We took a direct flight via scoot from Singapore to Kaohsiung.
Getting our Taiwan sim card
Took the train to our hotel located at Central Park station
Around 8 mins walk from the MRT, we arrived at Kindness hotel @ Xin Jue Jiang! Booked the 4 pax family room.
Hotel is spacious, clean with buffet breakfast. Excellence service as well, only downside was we can hear very clearly the kids running upstairs throughout our stay.
Few steps away from the hotel are eateries and further down is the shopping district Xin Jue Jiang.
Spotted Rabbit cafe recommended by 食尚玩家 so came in here to grab a late lunch! It was definitely good!
We also went to the night markets that are all conveniently located near the MRT stations.
Liu He Night Market @ Formosa Boulevard station
Rui Feng Night Market @ Kaohsiung arena station
And also the Anning Wholesale Shopping Street, kinda similar to Taipei’s Wu Fen Pu. Located near Kaohsiung station. Map
Last November, we visited Kaohsiung & Taipei! Came to Fo Guang Shan on our 2nd day via public transport. Took the bus from Zuo Ying station.
Fo Guang Shan consists of the museum and the temple. They are around 15-20mins from each other, its walkable or you can wait here for the shuttle bus.
From the main entrance, is the way to the museum. The temple is on the hill on your left.
The main entrance leads to the reception, restaurants and souvenir shops. Its like a vegetarian haven!
After exiting, you will come to this walkway towards the big Buddha.
Along the way there are pagodas and illustration on Buddhism.
Within the big Buddha, are several exhibition halls.
Museum of Buddhist Underground Palace
Museums of Buddhist festivals
佛光山佛陀紀念館 Fo Guang Shan Buddha Museum
