Taiwan Day 2 (Kaohsiung) : Fo Guang Shan 佛光山

7D Taiwan trip December 2012 : Kaohsiung + Taipei


Good Morning Kaohsiung! Love the view from my balcony. Wouldn't it be perfect if this is the view from my window back home?
View from Migo Hostel. The building on the right is the highest building in Kaohsiung. Tuntex Sky Tower 高雄85大樓

Our first stop - Fo Guang Shan 佛光山 - the largest and the oldest Buddhist monastery in Taiwan. In chinese, it literary means "Buddha Light Mountain". 
If you are on the trip with elderly, then this is definitely one of the must-stop places in Kaohsiung.
