Pier 2 Art Center, Pengial Zone

Easter Holiday Ride – Journey to Revitalisation

Revitalisation of historical buildings as a means of preserving cultural and historical heritage is getting more significant nowadays. By injecting new usages to these buildings, it is expected that its life activities can be sustained. Our second ride in Kaohsiung has been focused on one of the highly recognised revitalisation projects, the Pier 2 Art Center. We have also boarded the ferry at GuShan to the Cijin District (旗津半島)and have a wonderful sprint along the Cijin Cycling Promenade (旗津踩風大道).

Love River - Kaohsiung

Easter Holiday Ride – Riding in “Love”

When two people are in love, we will say "they are 沐浴愛河中" in Chinese (ie. bathing in the love river).

Lamma Island 南丫島闔家一日遊

The weather was slightly warmer in last week which was suitable for outdoor activities. By the time my boy has finished his homework, it was already close to noon and we might not have time to places farther away In that case, we decided to have a short trip in one of the outlying islands nearby - the Lamma Island … 前個星期六天氣稍為回暖,正好適合郊遊。早上小朋友做好功課後,已差不多到了中午,心想:遠的地方去不到,不如就往鄰近的南丫島走一轉吧 …
