  • It was the first kaohsiung hotspot, with the exception of the airport and the Red Line. The hotel is located in the center of the city.

  • It's the second most beautiful station in the world, but what's the first? What about the third one? I think that it is beautiful, but I think that it is better to be a little bright even if it is a dim feeling.
