Quite a surprise to find something like this in a subway station. A spectacular piece of stained glass, well worth a visit even if you're not using Formosa Boulevard station.

It's a pretty sight for a MTR station. But there's nothing in this area, so it's okay if you pop up from the platforms to see the display if that's part of your transit. Not worth travelling just to see it.

Not too exciting but it is amazing, located at the center of kaohsiung formosan blvd station. There's not a thing to do there but witness the beauty of this colorfully painted glass ceiling.

Lovely station with impressive glass art work 360 degrees round. There is a light laser sound from 5pm each night, if you are around do stop by and have a look.

Wow what an amazing piece of art just in a metro station. I loved this place. You can pick up a free audio guide from 9-5 and it is well worth it to understand the meaning behind. You can collect it from small white souvenir...More

A lots of people wondering around taking photos. But to me I found nothing special. Honestly a lot of MTR stations around the globe are far more interesting. There are a few shops in the stations but most of them are not attractive to shoppers.

The hotel I stayed is just right next to Formosa Boulevard Station. This is one of the most beautiful stations in the world.
