    • Οικονομική διαμονή

    Martyrs' Shrine, located on the Shoushan mountainside, is a refurbished landmark built during the Japanese era. While its traditional palace-style mountain gate, main hall, and cloister are added during the 1970s, some remains of the stone lanterns have been retained so you can see the stylistic evolution over history. 

    Pines and cypresses surround the shrine, resulting in a peaceful and cool atmosphere. All of Gushan, Cijin, Kaohsiung City, and Kaohsiung Port, as well as 85 Sky Tower, can be seen from Martyrs' Shrine. It's a great place to see the mountain and sea landscape within a convenient distance from Kaohsiung.

    Purple Butterfly Valley is an ecological phenomenon that occurs in Maolin National Park, in which butterflies gather during winter (November–March). Around 1 million of purple butterflies collectively migrate from northern Taiwan to the warm south, coming to the sacred mountains of the indigenous Rukai and Paiwan tribes. 

    As these creatures fly into Maolin National Park, they forming a spectacular "butterfly wintering valley" similar to Mexico's Monarch Butterfly Valley. You can visit Purple Butterfly Valley for free – the butterflies are often floating about, looking for flowers and drinking from puddles.

    The Shoushan National Natural Park is home to many untouched spots and exotic wildlife. Tianyu Cave is one of the most famous and accessible limestone caves in the park – after squeezing through its narrow entrance, you'll be treated to unique stalactites and stalagmites. If you follow the trail from the exit of Tianyu Cave, you will soon see Dreams Links, which has massive aerial roots of purple princess plants dangling down from above like a curtain of beads. 

    The southern part of Shoushan National Natural Park has many hidden natural wonders, including Shaonu Mountain and Jiulong Banyan. Make sure to plan your route before exploring the mountain. It's a good idea to bring a torch when making your way through Tianyu Cave.

    Chengcing Lake is a scenic recreation area that was used for farmland irrigation as early as the Japanese era. To this day, it's still one of Kaohsiung's most important water sources. Thanks to its excellent lake and mountain scenery, quiet environment, and emphasis on forest cultivation, the area is very popular for locals looking to unwind. 

    Barbecue facilities can be found throughout the park, though they require a small cleaning fee to use. The lush greenery and vast fields here are suitable for picnics when the weather is good. You can also tour Chengcing Lake by bicycle.

    The British Consulate at Takow is at the peak of Shaochuantou in Kaohsiung. Established in 1879, the building has been restored several times before it was eventually merged into a cultural park. It is the only complete British consulate in Taiwan, featuring an official residence, road and office. Inside the consulate area, wax figures depict the daily life and port activities in Takao during the late-19th century. 

    There's also a museum showcasing wax models of British consuls negotiating with Qing Dynasty officials.

    Fongyi Tutorial Academy, registered as a Grade III monument in 1985, is Taiwan's largest and fully-preserved college from the Qing Dynasty. Since its establishment in 1814 (the 19th year of Jiaqing), it has undergone several renovations. A blessing/opening ceremony took place in 2014 to restore the ceremonial function of the Wenchang Temple in the courtyard before it was officially opened to the public.

    The Rainbow Church has little to do with religion as it's actually a contemporary art installation in Qijin Coastal Park. The structure, consisting of 13 square iron frames juxtaposed with rainbow colours and elegant geometric shapes, is neatly arranged on a platform. It blends well with the natural landscape and nearby ocean. 

    You can take photos for free except between 4 pm and 6.30 pm. Not far away, there's the Shell House, a gold and semi-circular art installation by Lin Shunlong and Ye Pengsheng. The contrast between the white and gold is striking, making for unique photos.
