Beautiful ceiling in the MRT station

It is a great art under ground. It is a ceiling in the MRT station (Formosa Boulevard). When you pass the foyer, you can have a look the grant picture above you. It is amazing.

This was the nearest station to our hotel and we took the train around kaohsiung often and had to walk pass this light of dome display. Okay to check it out if you have time.

This is part of the Formosa Boulevard station. It's quite impressive if you stand right in the middle of this beautifully designed dome.

For such a hyped up attraction, I expected a bit more but it's really just a lit up ceiling. It's still an impressive installation and a great idea to beautify an otherwise boring station. You'll pass by the Dome of Light anyway, so just stop for a quick snap.

The place is just like the lobby of the metro station. It's very convenient to go. I saw many visitors were taking pictures as well.

Staying nearby at Liuhe, we passed the Dome of Light a total of 6 times. The art installation dominates the foyer of the MRT station just at the entrance of the Red and Orange lines.

At the foyer of the Formosa Boulevard Station. Colourful and attractive. There is a short light show at various times.

Very pleasant bike track along the beach. Rent a bike when getting off the ferry. Would also be suitable for a nice walk.

Just like another MRT station in Taiwan, the atmosphere is like being in the train station. The interesting view here is the dome of light. It is a glass work arts in the Formosa boulevard MRT station. It shows very beautiful design in colors.

Amazingly beautiful! It might be one of the most beautiful MRT station I'd ever seen. A pianist was playing at the time when I was there too. Spending 30 minutes just to sit down, listen to music and watch the light shining the dome was amazing to me!
