Hongmaogang Cultural Park exterior photo

Hongmaogang Cultural Park

After Hongmaogang village was relocated in 2007, its former grounds became the Port of Kaohsiung’s Intercontinental Container Terminal, while allotting a quarter of the original land as the current Hongmaogang Cultural Park. Located at the entrance of the Kaohsiung Harbor Wharf No. 2, the park preserves the original settlement’s architectural elements in a unique display that showcases its archeological assets and architectural history.

The cultural park features a revolving restaurant for visitors to enjoy the captivating sunset and view of incoming ships. Traveling to the park via the cultural yacht is our most recommended means of transportation for visitors to fully experience the beauty of Kaohsiung harbor.

Fongyi Academy exterior photo

Fongyi Academy

Fongyi Academy was built in 1814 as a private educational institution during the Qing dynasty. It served as part of the Japanese Army’s Garrison Hospital, then functioned as a sericulture farm and Fengshan county’s officer dormitory. The academy went through extensive restoration and opened to the public in 2014, reclaiming its original purpose as an educational institution as well as featuring exhibitions that introduce the academy’s operation, traditional imperial exams, and Fongshan District’s developmental history. We aim to revive the academy’s position as the largest and best-preserved institution of its kind in Taiwan.

Taiwan Pineapple Museum

The only remaining pineapple canning factory still standing in Taiwan was founded under the Taifang Chamber of Commerce by Jin-tu Ye, a businessman from Dadaocheng, Taipei known as the “Pineapple King.”

The factory was listed as a historical building in 2004 and reopened after restorations in 2018. The museum pays tribute to the industry’s golden age, exhibiting Dashu’s local history, the development of the Taifang Chamber of Commerce, Taiwan’s pineapple canning industrial history, and at the same time featuring experience-based canning workshops.

The British Consulate at Takow exterior photo

The British Consulate at Takow

Built in 1879 and now classified as a national heritage site, the British Consulate at Takow includes an official residence on the top of a hill that once functioned as consular accommodation as well as an official reception hall, and an office area at the foot of Shaochuantou. A trail was later added to connect the two areas. This architectural complex was the first consulate established by the British in Taiwan. It has since experienced numerous political and property transfers and now stands as testament to the rise and fall of Hamasen’s international trade and fishing industry.

Wax sculptures on display demonstrate the lifestyle of bygone days. The park also offers guided tours and dining services where visitors can enjoy historical and natural sceneries combined with views of Sizihwan Bay and its glorious sunset.
