It has very beautiful night view of port of Kaohsiung! Definitely recommend to visit, especially at night if you can. more »
At here, you can have a great view of Kaohsiung even though it is not convenient to get here by public transportation. I would recommend you to get there by taxi or motorcycle. I think it is a good place to see the night view, take a walk, and have some drinks with friends. Hope everyone enjoy it!
The road uphill is a bit tiring for walking... Especially under the hot sun. The view is fabulous though. I should have come up at night also. The shrine is not that much of historical value but its remarkable that it was a Japanese shinto shrine but now is worshiping those who fought against the Japanese invaders in WWII. Good for everyone to have a brief history lesson.
