Cruises to Kaohsiung

Colonization by the Dutch in the 17th century has left an ample architectural legacy, as did Taiwan's rule by Japan from 1895-1945. Grab a coffee at the former British Consulate, a landmark overlooking the bay. Art lovers can enjoy the outdoors and contemporary sculptures at the Kaohsiung Museum of Fine Arts' Sculpture Park, and for a spiritual experience, a visit to the Fo Guang Shan Buddha Memorial Centre, with the world's largest sitting Buddha, is highly recommended.
