[ Container Fleet! ] KaohSiung Harbor Trip with Drone 高雄港一日遊

KaohSiung Harbor Trip Summary

Background

My buddy came to Taiwan from Seattle and stayed in KaohSiung. Since I’ve only went to KaohSiung once I was curious to know more. Thus right after my USA flight I took the Taiwan HSR and headed straight to KaohSiung (Yap this is my style of exploration).

After meeting up and having some short discussion, we decided to do a KaohSiung harbor trip. We took the subway and exited from Sizihwan 西子灣  station.

Hamasen Railway Cultural Park 哈瑪星鐵道文化園區

The first stop of our KaohSiung Harbor trip we went to a railway cultural park.

The red brick building at the hilltop was The British Consulate at Takow 打狗領事館, a former British diplomat building from the Qing Dynasty (Actually it was the Director’s residence rather than the office).

At the beach we released the drone to investigate the famous Cihou Fort 旗後砲台, an old battery more than 200 years ago.
