(4star but very new & well mantain & its beside a convenient store) No. 237-1, Nanhua Road, Sanmin District, Kaohsiung City. Located just opposite the Kaohsiung Railway Station and Kaohsiung Main Station (R11). Alternatively, board bus 12, Airport Line and 301 to Kaohsiung Railway Station. Nearby the hotel is the Daguangpu (Lioho/Liouhe Tourist night mkt-not much things there & food soso only).

Day 2- Day 5 places that i went:

FOGUANGSHAN > Guanghua night mkt * Dinner + Shopping (must go)
nt15-32 (15-18mins) train.The bus stop is located behind Chiu-chu-tang station. To get to the bus stop, walk towards the right as you leave the train station and walk down to the underground passageway which leads to the back of the train station. On reaching the other end of the passageway, cross the road to the bus stop which is located slightly to the right. Any bus that passes through the road will take you to Fo Guang Shan.

take TzeChiang rail train > Douliou > bus/taxi > JANFUSHAN FANCY WORLD
I took taxi to janfushan NT180 (one-way). Please DO NOT GO to this theme park if you have a choice-nothing to play & it's very small ; why? only about 8-10types of ride in total only for kids 2-6 still ok but they close at 5.30pm. so U need to reach there about 10am at the entrance so u will have enough time to play.
Adult ticket is NT899 / my son 6 yrs NT350. discount ticket can be brought at their 7-11 store just before you reach janfushan its cheaper at NT599
