Hiking Huang Di Dian 皇帝殿 this past weekend was one of the best day trips I’ve been on in Taiwan.  Just about 20 minutes from Taipei, this hike is one that shouldn’t be missed.

A perfect 360 view awaited us at the end.

Lotus Lake, Kaohsiung, Taiwan

Lotus Lake is a beautiful area to explore in Kaohsiung City, southern Taiwan (台灣高雄蓮池潭).  I had an opportunity to spend the afternoon there just before Chinese New Year, 2009.

The lake is man made and a popular tourist destination.  It has many temples and pagodas, including the Spring and Autumn Pavilions (春秋閣), the Dragon and Tiger Pagodas (龍虎塔), and the Confucian Temple (孔廟).  It can be walked around in half a day while still seeing all the sights.

I was unable to find much information on most attractions around the lake, but I’ve provided what I know.
