Trip Moments

I never thought that I would arrive in Taiwan so unexpectedly. The first city I went to was Kaohsiung. Walking out of the subway, standing under the colourful sky of the beautiful island, you can see the most beautiful sight in the world.  Like all the people who come here, I sit on the floor and look up. I lost track of time and forgot to continue on my journey. At this moment, the whole world is presented in the most beautiful way. Liuhe Night Market, not far from the subway station, is already brightly lit and the crowds are moving.  Most of the country has already entered the early winter, and Kaohsiung still feels like it is still in summer. At 30 degrees, it is hot and humid, and fine sweat will appear on the skin. This is the kind of atmosphere, just around the night market.

Since coming to Kaohsiung, it is essential to see the world's most beautiful MRT station. Beautiful Island Station is the intersection of the Kaohsiung MRT Red Line and the Orange Line. It was built in 2008 and had a 140-meter-diameter for the main station. It is the largest underground round station in the world. The main body was designed by Japanese architect Takamatsu Sho, with the theme of prayer. The public artwork inside the station looks vibrant, the dome of the light was created by the Italian artist Narcissus Masters in four years. The island station is not only famous because of the beautiful decoration of his station, but also because of his historical significance. I believe that looking at it with the knowledge of its history, will make you feel what you see is not just a colorful zenith.

Kaohsiung has a very special beautiful island MRT station. The Dome of Light was created by an Italian art master and took 4 years to complete with over 4,000 pieces of stained glass. The Miyajima MRT Station is known as the second-best subway station in the world.  There are light shows in each of the three working days and four light shows on the weekend. From the ground, the design of the MRT station is also quite unique, a bit like the pyramid of the Louvre in Paris designed by Pei's. Whether it is the daylight or the night lights, it is dazzling.
