This weekend the NCKU international students office (ISAD) prepared a joint trip with some of the other universities in Tainan and Kaohsiung to go visit some of the beautiful interesting spots around Kaohsiung. Here’s a bit of what we saw…
First off, we went to see the Kaohsiung National Science and Technology Museum, which unfortunately is still very much Chinese based, but has some good English guides. The displays are very children oriented, but there are a few cool stuff even us adults can play around with (the two wheel Sag-wai thingy). The museum also has an IMAX theater, showing various 3D nature-history mega-adventures.
We then arrived at the Kaohsiung harbor, which I’ve been to before, and took the ferry down to Cijin island where we had ourselves a seafood lunch. I walked around for a while and had myself some ice fruits and ice-cream to ease the unbelievable winter heat (which I estimate at 30c at least).
Next up were the Cijin lighthouse, high up on the mountain with some gorgeous views of the Kaohsiung harbor and Kaohsiung city. Next to it, on the other side, is the Cihou Fort-Battery, served for defending Kaohsiung’s shore.
While there, we caught a photo-shooting of one gorgeous Taiwanese girl:
After some chilling out and snacks at Cijin beach, we made our way to the grand finale of the evening – the former British Consulate of Takao, where we could watch the sunset and sip-up some evening coffee with thousands of other tourists from all over Taiwan.
That was a great day out. Kaohsiung has some really lovely spots. Beautiful.
