    Fun
    Our first stop on our private tour off the HAL Westerdam. We were early so there were not many people there yet but soon after, the other tour groups arrived and it was very crowded and hard to take photos. A fun place to visit where you can walk inside into the dragon's mouth and come out from the tiger's. Many little sculptures inside depicting punishments in hell for those who did bad things while on earth. Good place to have your Instagram moments.

    Currently under maintenance
    When I was there in october 2023 both thr Dragon and the Tiger were undergoing maintenance. You can still go inside though. Im not that well versed in Eastern religion but inside the Dragon seems to be Buddhistic hell and inside the Tiger Heaven with the heavenly kings. Please dont take offence if I got that wrong. The murals were nice and walking into the Dragon and out of the Tiger should turn bad luck into good luck.

    View is somewhat restricted at present
    The site can still be viewed from outside. Unfortunately, what is one of the key places to see around the lake is covered in scaffolding for what appears to be a major refurbishment which severely restricts sight of the detailed exterior decoration. There are still plenty of other places to visit around the lake that makes the trek worthwhile.

    Under construction... lovely otherwise, but not much else to do around there
    Despite being disappointed that it was closed, I can't really ding this place for being under construction. It happens, and is usually for the safety and maintenance of the structure. However, considering this is quite difficult to get to, and a highlight of the area, I would have expected a little more to go into it. More signs about the area, easy places to visit, or even an easier way to get there. We kind of just walked around the lake blindly thanks to Google maps. I guess it's worth it to see once the renovations are over, but otherwise maybe wait a bit. I guess you can go jogging around the lake, but beware the mosquitoes

The Dragon and Tiger Pagodas is Kaohsiung's major attraction. The cartoon-like statues of dragon and tiger form an impressive landscape of Lotus Pond. Unfortunately it is currently under renovation and scaffolding has covered almost everything.

I would have rated 4 out of 5 but for the ongoing maintenance which stifles your ability to appreciate the wholw package. You can still walk through the dragon and back out of the tiger.
I was very impressed with the detailed friezes on the walls inside the belly of the beasts.
Hope my bad luck was expelled and good luck is on its way lol.

I was there an hour after opening time on a Saturday, but they were still closed for the climb up the towers. I still managed to enter the animal mouths and walk around the base. The art work is nicely done with colourful painting and many bird images. It does look a bit tacky close up.

The Dragon and Tiger Towers have been a feature on travelers' itineraries for many years. The are built over water, which is said to be lucky. Many visitors are under the impression that Kaohsiung is a gritty industrial city, but there are many things to see, if you look hard, such as the delightful lotus when they bloom.
