Help in Kaohsiung
Me and my friend willing be staying in Kaohsiung for 4 days 3 nites before we proceed to taipei. We be staying in Evergreen Hotel
However we have few qns:
1) We are not very familar where exactly is Evergreen hotel so what is the cheapest and faster way from Kaohsiung airport to our hotel?
2) What are the must places to visit in Kaohsiung? was hoping some1 could share their iternary with us for 4 days 3 nights =P
3) We would hope to travel to other places like Hualian or alishan, Ken ting e.g. too if there isnt much places to go in Kaohsiung. We are not sure the distance and time needed to travel to these places as we will still need to come back the hotel in Kaohsiung. Appreciate if any1 can share some info with us.
Thanks so much in advance
Re: Help in Kaohsiung
While I cannot help with the cheapest transport to the Evergreen hotel, I can tell you that it is centrally located in Sinsing district.
It is a few blocks north of the Cultural Center.
Hualian is far up the East coast from Kaohsiung. There is no rapid train, so travel time will be ~4 hours one-way. It is a long distance to make as a day trip.
If you go to Kaohsiung, I recommend visiting Cijin area.

Sorry, no visas issued here
There's nothing spectacular about this former British consulate building. Other than it served as a diplomatic post, prison and as a strategic lookout point (it's on a mountainside at the mouth of the Kaohsiung harbor), what's so special about an old brick edifice? Sure, it was the first western infrastructure built in Taiwan but nothing much else history-wise. You won't miss much skipping this place, you'll even be spared an exhausting stair climb to reach it from the street. Good thing admission is free.
Taiwan's second largest city
There's not much to see in Kaoshiung, after all it's more of a commercial and harbor district. Yet it still exudes the vibrancy of a world-class city and though whatever attractions there are may neither be medieval or historic, they still inspire for whatever the local people hold dear.
The Dream Mall houses several stores of both local and foreign brands. The building is shaped like a blue whale from afar and has a ferris wheel at the roof. Like Filipinos, local residents flock to the mall not merely to shop but to frolic and escape from the city heat.
Since most Taiwanese are Buddhists, temples are practically everywhere. But if you wish to see something grander than the ordinary, then head out of town to the Fo Guang Shan monastery where your jaw would surely drop in awe at what they have there.
