Click here if you would like to read an overview of my 2 weeks vacation in Southen Taiwan
Kaosiung was my first destination. There wasn't a flight from Tokyo to Kaosiung, so i had to fly to Taipei and i took a bus first from the airport to Zhong Yi Station (SGD$3) and then a train from Zhong Yi Station to Kaohsiung station (SGD$35). The cheapest way from Taipei to Kaosiung is actually by bus, but it's a little more complicated from the airport and it was already rather late in the afternoon, so i took the train instead.
I stayed at Paper Plane Hostel 紙飛機高雄青年旅館, a new hostel that has very comfortable beds, high-tech facilities, and excellent service. The cheapest dorm only cost about TWD$450 per night with delicious breakfast included if you book directly from their facebook page or website. This is truly the most comfortable hostel that I've ever stayed in,.
Places that i went in Kaohsiung :
Overall, Kaohsiung to me is a very artsy place. I had the such a wonderful time there because of my lovely friends. Please say hi for me to them if you happen to be staying at Paper Plane Hostel ;)
