The sugar-making industry was once a blooming business for Taiwan and accounted for 73.6% of the country’s export income. It started as early as the Dutch occupation time and expanded during the Japanese occupation era. This Sugar Refinery in Kaohsiung was one that played a major part in this history. But the golden days for the sugar business is long gone. Many refineries like this have been shut down and converted into… (continue in English)

就高雄來說,我認為打狗領事館是個必去的景點,因為在這除了看古蹟、眺望海洋也可好好來杯個英式下午茶。台灣的第一個正式的英國領事館其實是就是在高雄,雖然前面有台南&淡水,但是最後還是遷到當時的 “打狗” (高雄), 成為正式的據點。其實就 “英國領事館”來說,無論是在高雄的這個,或是淡水的、廈門的等等,其實都有一些滿獨特的氛圍和環境,高高…
