Yancheng, Kaohsiung

12/15/2010 Taiwan Explorer

Yancheng District (Chinese 鹽埕區, pronounced "Yánchéng Qū") is the smallest district in Kaohsiung city. It's really a nice little part of this awesome city right after you cross the bridge over the Love River. Not much is seen here. The most outstanding building seems to be the Kaohsiung Museum of History, which is found right over the bridge and next to the main road in the district. The building is from the Japanese times, completed in 1938. There's also a nice little park with a big statue of Sun Yat-sen, the founder of the Republic of China. We were headed to the only MRT station in the area: the Yanchengpu Station (鹽埕埔站).

This is what we saw on the way:

The Kaohsiung Museum of History. Read more about it here>>

The small park in the area.

The statue of Sun Yat-sen, the founding father of the Republic of China.

A part of the park behind the statue.

A small square. I wonder, if that's a fountain on the ground.

A big intersection. We headed left.

This part is really nice, because it's reserved for pedestrians.

Looks like a small public square. I like this neighborhood.

And then we arrived at the Yanchengpu MRT Station and took the train to the north.
