    Beautiful stained glass installation
    If I didn’t get this wrong, this is one of the worlds largest stained glass installation and it is just so frequented that it really test your skills at cropping to get a good photo. It located within the train station so it is quite easy to locate. Will leave the photos to describe how beautiful the installation is.

    A unique experience
    I initially thought the light show involved actual light globes but it is a video that is projected on the floor area. Shows are at 11am, 3pm and 8pm and lasts for 15 minutes. Certainly something unique for the inside of a train station.

    Face of modern Kaohsiung
    This is a glass artwork at Kaohsiung's major metro station. The Dome of Light, as its name hints, adds color and dynamics to the modern face of the Taiwanese port city. It is also the perfect role model of urban design. Tourists can't really miss this place.

    Nothing extraordinary but still worth a look....
    The Kaohsiung Metro network is very small. So no issue just dropping by have a look, on the way to somewhere else. The colours & arts do make the station looked different from others. But it is basically just an art in stain glass. Nothing extraordinary though.

This dome is inside Formosa MRT Station and is a large installation featuring a stained glass roof depicting the four ancient elements is a mythical creation scene. It’s very pretty and looks amazing in a photo.

This is a beautiful art installation at Formosa Boulevard Station. It is worth a special trip just to take pictures and enjoy the atmosphere.

We were lucky that we stayed right at Formosa Boulevard station and got the chance to enjoy the beautiful stain glass everyday when we took the MRT.

On an off peak time, there is hardly any tourist taking pictures and is a very pretty sight!

There are 4 places to visit on this station.

1) Exit 3: Head south from exit 3 about 100m, you will come to a famous BBQ Sausage shop, 黑橋牌. Awesome sausage. You can't find it anywhere else.

2) Exit 3: Head east from exit 3 about 50 meters, you will find a local food strip, 南華市場. Some interesting food stalls here

3) Exit 1: Famous LiuHe Night Market

4) Exit 1: Several good food stalls worth visiting. It is always packed with locals so you know the food is good.

This was fantastic.

Representing Earth, Light, Water and Fire (although fire seemed to be most represented), there are so many individual images for you to look at, try to work out and just comprehend how trippy this is. Some images are frightening, others are heart-warming.

Situated on the Formosa Boulevard station. I literally spent over an hour looking at it and taking photographs. 30meters in length and covering over 600 sq meters. There is so much to see. I read that this stop was rated the 2nd most beautiful subway-tube station in the world by some travel website (the first being a stop in Moscow).

Its free. Its location is very central and chances are if you are touring around the city you will pass by anyway. Pay it a visit.

The central park stop is worth a look too.

The structure itself is beautiful, not your average metro station, that's for sure.

Great spot for Pokemon Go as well!
