Tuntex 85 Sky Tower, Lingya

#26 of 370 in Things to do in Kaohsiung
Other · Hidden Gem
Climb to the top of the lofty Tuntex 85 Sky Tower and enjoy panoramic views across the cityscape, watching the comings and goings of vessels in Kao port. Standing at 347.5 m (1,140 ft) high, and with a form based on the first Chinese "kanji" (character) of the city's name, the tower was the tallest structure in Taiwan until it was superseded by the Taipei 101 in 2009. Occupied by offices, a department store, and a hotel, the 44th floor of the hotel was omitted due to eastern numerical superstition, and from the 45th floor to the 83rd, the structure contains one of the highest continuous atriums in the world. Head to the 75th floor for the viewing platform, and consider a visit later in the day to take in a picturesque sunset.

  • It's a great place to view the sunset. And it's so empty it feels like a private viewing gallery. I'm writing this on a Saturday evening. There are less than 10 visitors at this spot right now. Come visit!
  • Looks better from a distance. The city is too often too smoggy to see anything. It was hard to find out where to go and how to get up. Two stars because it's a nice looking building, good job engineers!
