Takao Railway Museum Reviews
A very small place, like the station it used to be - but worth spending some time and know more about the city and its not so long history as part of Japanese empire. more »
A small museum that is free entry. Just outside Xi Zi Wan train station. Shows artefacts of the railway station, and there are some trains outside the station to take photos. Love the open area... more »
Good place for weekend. Specially when you have family along. Also for tourist, connected by tram (light) rail station. Playing area for kids, kite flying. Exhibits old fashioned train engines. Also accessible are nearby places like shipping port museum.
Kaohsiung first train station during Japanese colonize this country. A lot of empty space I think this place is only good for physical activities like walking and jogging.
