Fongyi Academy

 Fongshan is an ideal location for a tour combining cultural and historical sites. Fongyi Academy, which is more than 200 years old, is a highlight. A majestic ancient building where students once studied the Chinese classics, it now contains exhibitions of stationery used in China's imperial examinations, the “eight-legged essays” which civil-service candidates were required to write, and other historical relics. In addition, many adorable statuettes have been placed throughout the complex so as to revive the original historic atmosphere and rejuvenate the appearance of Fongshan.

Weiwuying

 Weiwuying, once a military training center, has been transformed into the 47-hectare Weiwuying Metropolitan Park, the centerpiece of which is the National Kaohsiung Center for the Arts (Weiwuying). Inspired by a group of banyan trees, Dutch architect Francine Houben devised a streamlined design for the center that could display the attitude of an easygoing life. The venue includes an opera house, a concert hall, a theater, a performance hall, an outdoor theater, and other facilities. Visitors can easily feel the comfort of this place, lingering by the canopy terrace to enjoy the blue sky.
