CULTURED AT THE PIER 2 ART DISTRICT

Did you know that the City of Kaohsiung really likes their art?  I do, well only because I did some research before visiting this place.  I mean, you should learn a bit about the culture, lifestyle and attractions of the city you are visiting right?  Especially if it’s for vacation.1

And that my friends, is why I went to the Pier 2 Art District in Kaohsiung.  Here’s a recap of this unique experience.

First, let’s talk logistics.  I suggest taking the MRT (the public train) because it’s the most convenient / cheapest way to get here.  Get off at the Yangchengpu station orange line, exit 1.  Once you exit the station, you will see a sign that says “Pier 2 Art District”.

Yes that’s the art district that I am talking about.  Follow it until you see sculptures, structures and other things that is deemed to be art.

There is also an exhibit where they display, well art.  Took a lot of pictures here because there was a lot of things to look at:

Okay WARNING: The next few pictures are rated R.  Don’t look at me, I didn’t sculpt these guys.  It’s ART.  Deal with it.

haha I don’t get it.  I really don’t.  Maybe it’s some sort of abstract art that is suppose to symbolize something meaningful?

I don’t really know.

Another reason why you should come here is because it’s simply a great walk.  The district is only 10 minutes away from the Love River.  You also see a lot of locals here walking, biking, and just relaxing.

Love it.
