Travel Tips for Kaohsiung
Faokuangshan-Buddahism Saint Place
Faokuangshan is Buddahsim saint place.
The most famous is hundert thousands golden statues.
Faokuangshan is not only for monks, but also for normal people who would like to touch Buddahism, for example there is college for Buddahsim knowledge and camps for children.
Guanin Mountain Area...
If your looking for a patch of green to get away from the big city of Kaohsiung, Guanin Mountains is not a bad choice. Well, its really not a mountain, just a hilly area that sits west of Kaohsiung. And you are not likely to see many(if any) tourists here, but it does seem to be quite popular with the locals.
There are quite a few trails that wind their way thru the odd shaped peaks of Guanin. Also, many a street vendor has taken up camp on the roads that lead up to the park.
And the best part about Guanin Mt. is that is really really close to my house.. (I can probably be here in 15 minutes or so...)
Dagangshan Chaufeng Temple (¤j±^¤s¶W®p¦x)
Mt. Dagangshan is a scenic spot of Buddhism and is called Taiwan Buddha Mountain for many temples are set there. Chaufeng Temple was built in the years of Chyanlung in Ching dynasty, 300 years ago. The architecture of the temple is designed according to the terrain of the mountain. The whole temple with verdant trees around and quiet environment look imposing. There are statues of Gwanyin and Buddha rising above the pool before the temple, looking solemn. Other temples on the Mt. Dagangshan are Lunghu Nunnery, Fu Chywan Shrine, Lanfeng Temple and Lungyan Villa. These always attract tourists here to trip and worship.
My Home City
Kaohsiung is the second largest city located in the southwestern part of Taiwan. It's also a harbor city with a population of 2 million people. It's a modern industrial city, so that means it's smuggy and polluted all the time. It's very hot (29-36 degrees Celsius) and humid in the summer; mild (14-25 C) and dry in the winter. The best season to visit is fall to spring. In another word, try not to come over in the summer. If you are from the North (where it snows in the winter), you might die of the humidity and burning heat if you intend to try your luck here in the summer. But it's not so bad, there's air conditioning indoors everywhere you go (better than the hellish heat stroke in London!). This picture shown was taken last year on Lantern Festive, which falls on the 15th of January on the lunar calendar. There's usually a big display of lanterns along the sides of the Love River where draws lots of visitors coming to check them out. As a local, I only saw it once in my life time, which was last year. Not too bad. Keep it up!
