Lotus Lake is a must-visit when in Kaohsiung City. You can either alight at Zuoying or Ecological District station and have a 20min walk to this beautiful place. Also perfect for an evening run, and you can capture great photographs!

Have bought to this place by my Taiwanese friend, which the local have mentioned that a lot of people have came here to pray for good health, career, relationship........etc. The place is big and it will take quite a while for the walking, the only bad thing is that there is no mrt station nearby, only a train station and...

Lotus Pond is a large lake in northern Kaohsiung in the Zuoying District. It owes its name to the many lotus plants in the lake that blossom every summer, apparently first planted centuries ago. It started as a smaller natural lake, but was expanded several times to its present size. The real draw to Lotus Pond are the temples and... More

An interesting place to spend 1-2 hours of your day. We enjoyed taking photos and walking around. Not much shelter around so you will be walking under the hot sun. Do bring along your sunglass and water.

Lotus Pond is a relaxing day out offering a level, scenic pathway around the pond. There is much to see and it was relatively quiet with not too many tourists. There's the Tiger Dragon Tower, a visitor's centre, a large pagoda out across a pier over the pond, Spring and Autumn Temple, another huge temple of a God or something?... More

Beatiful scenery and great place to enjoy traditional chinese architecture. I advise to go by day and by the night as the building reflecting in the waters of the lake make it look really beatiful

Walkway goes around the whole lake. Not well kept though. Traffic and tons of stalls line the outside. Be careful when walking close to the roads...TONS of scooters not following traffic rules. Almost impossible catching a taxi here.

Costs you nothing but time, many different beautifull temples. Take your time, I walked around the lake and I went in every temple. This took me 2,5 hour. You can also rent a bike and if you do not spent this much time in every temple as I did you can go around in 1 hour. So much beauty at... More

The pond is nice, the dragon and tiger statues are rather kitschy. Too much childish colors and nothing more besides that, disappointing

Easy access, from zuoying mrt , take yellow taxi cost only 90NT There are several tourist spots. Most of it is pagidas and temples. Prepare sunscreen or umbrella, it is hot unshaded area. The buildings are very well maintained and free entrance. Recommended to all tourists
