台湾。高雄随性之旅 - Random trip in Kao Hsiung

After Tai Nan, I head to Kao Hsiung (The Second Biggest City in Taiwan)
It is an advanced city because there is Subway there. haha. 

First thing to do is Checking In Backpacker hostel ^^
I choose 
T.K Hostel (台客栈)

Address: 
Zhongzheng 4th Rd.,Xinxing Dist.,Kaohsiung City 800,Taiwan (R.O.C.)
Emailtk.hostel@gmail.com (Book Using this email ya)
Phone Number : 0978-805-369

Advantages : 
1. Super Neat and comfortable - Impress me a lot
2. Shampoo, body shampoo and some necessities are provided
3. Near to Subway and Night Market.

Bad Experience : They gave me a map so I took it for granted that I could find it. Unfortunately, there is no Logo or Sign for the hostel. "Just like stepped on a shit" I copied a wrong number and cannot get the hostel. I was "LOST" for an hour and I am starving!!! I cannot find any internet or wi-fi around too. T.T haha. Thanks God that there is a church nearby and I asked help from a sister there. I got the number and successfully get to the place. Phiuuu...>.<

The Subway Station near to T.K hostel is very famous. 
Formosa Boulevard (美丽岛)

Because of this:
The Dome of Light (光之穹頂)
The Colorful Hall IN the subway station. This subway station is the MOST beautiful subway station in the world (They claim this)

Ok, Kao Hsiung Subway Stations (高雄捷运站)
Basically it has 2 lines. Red and Orange line. But YouYou Card (悠游卡) cannot be used here o. One-day pass or others can be brought if you use it frequently. With the One-Day-Pass, you can get some discounted stuffs like entrance tickets.
Kao Hsiung Subway - 高雄捷运
 Then I go to
Lotus Lake
(Take Subway to ZuoYing (左营) or Ecological District (生态园区) Then take bus to there)

Relaxing lakes with several temples around.

There is a Taiwan Juan Chun Museum (眷村文化馆). 
History about special village in Taiwan~

Super fast settle the place. haha... Getting boring with historical stuffs. Sorry XD

Then
Unexpectedly and Fortunately, I meet an ANNUAL "Super-High" event in Kao Hsiung!!! Which is
Kao Hsiung Beer Paradise 2013 (高雄啤酒节 2013) 

I am Sorry, it is on 19,20,21 July 2013. It is OVER. Join Next year ya. haha
The Entrance Fee is NTD 250.


It is Open-Air and Huge! All the Beer Companies set booths inside and prepare super lots of activities. You can try every beer inside But I don't allow myself to get drunk. Haha XD. With the entrance ticket, you can exchange a glass or tin of beer whichever you like. The performances are abundant and a lot. All are quite entertaining. 

This dancer is my favourite. She dances with SOUL! haha. Pretty, Sexy and Professional. She is in an opening performance (美女猛男秀) with another 3 girl dancers. All professional cameras are in front of them. "Chi Kia, Chi Kia, flash flash flash". The most funny thing is, when they come down and tough guys go up to perform, all cameras are DOWN. XD This is Damn Funny! I laugh die. hahaha

Crazy Drinker. haha

They invited some performers like Jess Lee, By2, MC Hotdog. Jess of course! super Awesome! MC Hotdog impresses me too, he is GOOD and HIGH. haha

I get myself this~~ The Best I think ~ haha

My face NOT Red. so Not Drunk o. wakaka.

After that, look a bit lonely~ but I am OK with it. 
I went to Love River (爱河) ALONE. Wakaka

It is not really beautiful. All are in the photos. But this is a nice place for couples for sure. Holding hands and walking around here. So romantic. haha. You can also rent a bicycle for Free with you have Visa cards and certain other cards. 

Liu He Night Market 六和夜市
I just walk around and have my dinner. OKOK only. This night market is very small~~~ haha...I think 瑞丰夜市 is better ba.





Tired and I call it a Day~ yeah~~~
Next day morning, after breakfast and check out, I head to

Sizihwan 西子湾 and Cijin District (旗津)
(Stop at Sizihwan 西子湾 subway station )

Please rent a bike here ya. 90 NTD only and then travel around in Cijin and Sizihwan easily. 

Yup, Cijin (旗津)is a small island, we need to take ferry to there. With bike, it needs NTD 15 and few minutes to arrive there. 

Cycling around is enjoyable and relaxing. There are some awesome places in CiJin. Just cycle around the island. All cycling routes are just beside Sea! So the wind is strong and comfortable. Thanks God for the Not-Sunny-Day. hehe



Windmill place. I pretty like here, sit down, enjoy the wind and Egg Ice Cream while looking at Kites. haha

Egg Ice Cream

There are a lot of PEOPLE and SEA FOOD there too. haha

I am back to Sizihwan and go for ICE!!!
This is a very famous Ice place.
海之冰 

Why famous, because of the SIZE of the ICE :
X2, X3, X5, X10, X15, X20. So big! haha



The shop is full of "Decoration" haha

My yummy single Fruit Ice. haha... Who wanna go with me and get X20! haha

Even though this is a Alone-Trip, as a Lone Ranger, I enjoy pretty well also. Haha XD
Next Trip will be 小琉球, 垦丁 and 花莲. YES YES
This time is a Group Trip. Although very expensive, I go because of the group of people (My Lab Colleagues) It will definitely be FUN. Wohooo~~~
