Fellow MIUI World Fans!!!

In my previous #2 volumes of
MIUI WORLD TOUR, I had brought you all to Taiwan(台湾) - Kaohsiung City (高雄市)Taiwan is a beautiful island, filled with many friendly and nice peoples, (not forgetting delicious foods!) Kaohsiung have many places of interests for tourist and travellers, Today, I will bring you to my last stop in Kaoksiung, Sizihwan (西子灣).


About Taiwan - Kaohsuing (高雄市)
Credits:1, 2

Kaohsiung City
(高雄市) is a special municipality in the Republic of China. Located in southern-western Taiwan and facing the Taiwan Strait, it is by area the largest municipality, at 2,951.85 km2 (1,139.72 sq mi), stretches from Mt. Jade to Taiping Island, and second most populous (by city proper) with a population of approximately 2.77 million. Since its start in the 17th century, Kaohsiung has grown from a small trading village, into the political, economic, transportation, manufacturing, refining, shipbuilding, and industrial center of southern Taiwan. It is a global city with sufficiency as categorized by Globalization and World Cities Research Network in 2012.

About Sizihwan (西子灣)

Info credits:
Via Wikipedia

Sizihwan (Chinese: 西子灣; Hanyu Pinyin: Xīzǐwān; Tongyong Pinyin: Sizǐhwan) is a community in Gushan District, Kaohsiung, Taiwan, named for the adjacent bay of the Taiwan Strait, also called Sizihwan.

The name Sizih (西子) can also refer to Xi Shi, an alternative name used by the poet Su Dongpo of the Song dynasty referring to the famous ancient beauty, which somehow implies the view in this scenic area is as beautiful as the lady. Historical names include:
  • 洋路灣; Yánglùwān; Iûⁿ-lō͘-oan; "ocean way bay"
  • 洋子灣; Yángzǐwān, from Taiwanese Hokkien 洋仔灣; Iûⁿ-á-oan; "ocean bay"
  • 斜灣; Xiéwān, from 斜仔灣; Siâ-á-oan/Chhiâ-á-oan; "sloping bay"

Located on the Taiwan Strait at the north of the entrance to Kaohsiung Harbor, Sizihwan is surrounded by mountains with Shoushan to the northeast and Shaochuantou Mountain (哨船頭小山丘), a spur of Shoushan to the east. The area is dominated by the campus of National Sun Yat-sen University which faces the open waters of the Taiwan Strait. Sizihwan Beach (known as Takao Beach during Japanese rule) is a black sand beach that sits right at the edge of the campus and is a popular recreation area. The Former British Consulate at Takao and the historic Lingsing Temple (zh) at the peak of Shaochuantou overlook Sizihwan Bay.

*NOTE: All photos shot using Xiaomi Mi 5s, unedited.


Today, it a beautiful day, clear blue sky, and the sea. Not only you can enjoy the scenery, you can also enjoy the super-strong wind!

More of the lovely sceneries




Guess what are they queuing for?

Well, they are queuing to take the ferry on their bikes!

We pay a visit to the Former British Consulate at Takao built in 1865.


We don't know who wrote this, or under what situation, But one thing we can conclude, whoever wrote this must be a 'tea- lover(s)'!

Anyway, let move on to read on the history!


This was once a tunnel, also acting as a guarding barrier for the British consulate.


This used to be an open area for the English doctor to give medical attention(s) / treatment(s) to the patients.

This 'stone' is a plaque to commemorate the surrender or handling over to the Chinese during the Qing Dynasty.

In negotiation


Examining closer, it is made of candle wax!

Some of the common activities going on back in those days.


Ok Let move on, to Kaohsiung Port, and Yes, I was here!


Now, it is a static display of trains!



So we come to end of the day trip in Shiziwan.



END OF GREEDY's "MIUI WORLD TOUR" PART #3



So, I had brought you of you to a short visit to Taiwan-
Kaohsiung City, Do you like to pay a visit to Taiwan- Kaohsiung City too? Nonetheless, stay tuned, as my upcoming MIUI WORLD TOUR, I will bring you to visit another part of Taiwan- but in- ...... (keep a secret)....

Would you like to visit Kaohsiung, Taiwan?
