Taiwan Kaohsiung Ferris Wheel Station

2 April 2011

Out and about in Kaohsiung

Its quite hot here, 28C, the streets are very wide and neat, and its a long way between subway stations.
Time to find where the people are at.
I did finally find an electronics megastore kind of place, prices were high though, I suspect Australia is cheaper! Also there werent really any crazy Taiwanese market only things I could recognise, Hong Kong seems to have a lot more of that kind of stuff.

My hotel is very flash, with someone playing a grand piano, a day spa, a pool etc. The bed is as hard as a rock, far harder than any I slept on in Japan.

Enough chat, onto the pics.

Nearby theres an 'international fair' but they were just setting up, seems to be mainly Japanese, these milk maids were happy to pose for photos. In fact they insisted.

I spotted a line of people waiting under a marquee with a sign with a bus on it. I honestly had no idea where it was going the only English word on the sign was 'free'. So I joined the line. Interesting decorations on the inside of the bus, I swear it was no warmer than 10 degrees inside, everyone was shivering.

The bus went to the 'dream mall', apparently the biggest in east asia, whatever that means. It is pretty huge and has a mega food area with a shop claiming to have made the best beef noodles at the 2009 competition.

On top of the 12 floor Shopping mall is a huge ferris wheel. I went on a huge one in Yokohama so why not Kaohsiung?
This one is hello kitty themed, as you can see, its been my life long dream to share a ferris wheel with Hello Kitty.
