British Consulate at TakouKaohsiung has a large number of well-preserved relics scattered around the city.The handsome redbrick consulate, built in 1865 by a British trading company, has recently become one of our favourite hang-out spots. The consulate sits about 70m or so above the mouth of Kaohsiung harbour, and it''s a great location for watching the giant container ships sail through the tiny mouth of the harbour.
Kaohsiung Confucius TempleThis temple is an imitation of the architectural style common during the Song Dynasty. Solemn and majestic, it is Taiwan's largest Confucian temple. Beside an arching bridge is a bronze relief of China's most influential philosopher.

The temple is also the site of the annual Teachers' Day celebration held on September 28 in honor of the birthday of Confucius. To the east, you can see the jagged left side of Mt. Banping, which looks chopped off, rising up in the background.
Kaohsiung HarbourThe harbour itself has recently become an attraction as more and more visitors come to see.
Kaohsiung Museum of Fine ArtsThe Kaohsiung Museum of Fine Arts is the third fine arts museum to be established in Taiwan, following the Taipei Fine Arts Museum and the Taiwan Museum of Art. The Kaohsiung museum is still under development, and only its main gallery building and part of its sculpture park are open so far, but it has already become a major part of the Taiwan art scene. It first opened its doors in June of 1994; and since it was the last of the island's three main art museums, it has been able to encompass the latest of modern thinking in such areas as native history, community consciousness, and an emphasis on environmental landscaping. In external form the overall structure has a long horizontal appearance, with a long front corridor that delineates an open-air theater for outdoor performances and displays of large sculptures. This is also a place for the people of Kaohsiung to go and relax. Among the treasures in the museum's collection are Water Buffalo Herd, which is the last work completed prior to his death by Huang Tu-shui, who is known the father of Taiwan sculpture a warrior from the French sculptor Bourdelle's Montauban and a standing stone Buddha.
Lotus LakeThis famous scenic area on the northern outskirts of Kaohsiung City is noted for its profusion of temples, with the Confucius Temple at its northern edge and, in the south, the Dragon and Tiger Pagodas and the Spring and Autumn Pavilions. The lake is most beautiful in the late afternoon, when the setting sun is reflected in the water. Nearby are the ruins of the Fengshan County walls and gates, which have been designated a first-grade historic.

Spring and Autumn Pavilions
Two massive pavilions dedicated to Kuan Kung, the God of War, the Spring and Autumn Pavilions were completed in 1951. In front of the pavilions is a statue of Guanyin(Kuanyin), the Goddess of Mercy, riding a dragon. According to legend, Guanyin(Kuanyin) appeared above the clouds riding on a dragon, signifying that believers must erect an image depicting this event between pavilions of summer and autumn: The present-day structures are a result of this vision.
Dragon and Tiger Pagodas
About 700 meters to the south of the Spring and Autumn Pavilions are the Dragon and Tiger Pagodas. The dragon's throat is the entrance and the tiger's mouth is the exit. Entering a dragon's throat and coming out a tiger's mouth symbolizes turning bad luck to good fortune. Inside, paintings depict China's 24 most obedient sons as well as scenes of heaven and hell to inspire people to do good deeds during their lifetime, and to provide threatening examples of retribution for wrongdoing.
