A good place to sit down by the lake with a good book and some music (head phone of course). Some nice pagodas and the zig zag bridge are places for photography. Best time to visit is in spring and late autumn.

We woke up at 5:30am to take a cab there - that morning the fog was too much and there's no SUNRISE. But we fumbled around wondering which is the best spot for Sunrise - I think Jhong Sing tower is worth trying, faces the right direction and high. The signs around the park is unhelpful/ ambiguous/ weird - we... More

This was a pretty lake with some scenic views, however there was definitely some pollution going on in the lake. It didn't smell clean which was a shame as the place was quite peaceful and nice.

This used to be the winter resort of the former leader of Taiwan, Chiang Kai Shek. Entrance fee is $NT100 for non residents of Kaohsiung. It is a quite and serene park that's great for quiet stroll and relaxation. The former residence of Chiang is opened and can be visited. You can also rent a bike to move within the... More

Beautiful scenery. Clean. You can truly enjoy a nice morning walk along the lake. Approximately 7 km to lap the lake. @ the entrance you will be asked by some locals who will offer you to drive you around the lake to tour the major sites. We did not use this service. Up to you. No subway station nearby. Ask... More

When the air is still foggy, this is when the local and the elder gather around in ChengCing lake for exercise and TaiChi. Walk around the lake and the woods and enjoy the tranquility. THere is no fee for entry before 6 or 7 if I am not wrong.

Spacious, very large lake but not particularly well landscaped and not many facilities. Good for a quiet chat. Not sure if there was even a place for food, although there are restaurants outside the park. Surprised there was no children's playground. For me the best was the aquarium (extra charge, I think 150). It is housed in what was the... More
