Today is special because in Taiwan, we celebrate Mid Autumn Festival. Usually people will celebrate it with family doing some bbq or going somewhere with family. I don’t know what is the special thing being celebrated but I am more than grateful for a day off.
So today my friends and I decided to go to Taroko Park. For me, it is a mini amusement park with mall attached to it. Great place to shop around! It is not hard to reach Taroko Park, I can show you!
My starting point is from Tainan, so I went there by local train and hop off at Xinzuoying Station and from Xinzuoying station, you can take exit 2 and go down to zuoying MRT station. (Remember, don’t hop off at Zuoying TRA Station, because it is totally different between Zuoying TRA Station and Zuoying MRT Station (been there, done that)).
or you can hop off at Kaohsiung Main Station (R11) and take the front exit, go left and take the stair down. Go to Siaogang (小港) direction and stop at Caoya (草衙)(R4A) and take exit 2.
So at MRT Station, from Zuoying Station (R16), go to Siaogang (小港) direction and stop at Caoya (草衙)(R4A) and take exit 2.
Both are the same and Voila! You are there!
There are a lot of rides you can play here. When you just come out of the MRT gate, you can see a big caroussel there. It is super cheap, only costs you $50/ride. They also have all free ride pass only for $650 if you want to ride all of the games they have there. Here is the list of the price and rides in Taroko Park
my suggestion, it is better for you to go here at night. Their lights are pretty and it is not as hot as day. Bring a lot of water!
