I was actually looking for an old theater, 華國大戲院, in a part of Kaohsiung that I rarely go to and saw this super cool and old-style building that you rarely see anymore in Kaohsiung.
It has a bunch of shops on the bottom floors so I went up and looked up and saw this.
So walked around and around and there was no ground floor security so I was like fuck it let’s go to the top and man am I ever glad that I did.
I later did some googling and found out that the building was built in the late 1970s and the top floors were a hotel 龍華港式大飯店.
Also, I found out that before I first went to the old hotel area, the top floors had some hotel leftovers but was mostly filled with garbage.
So a real, better late than never kinda positive one!
I did a few IG stories and a couple of posts about the building over the past year or so, so the word got out.
If you go and check it out, remember that there is a lot of trash on stairways and dogs on the roof, yes dogs on the roof!!
Last time I was up there though there were workers doing construction and other worker stuff. They didn’t mind me and my friend up there but maybe that will change soon.
Mostly want to get this blog post out because a Kaohsiung Facebook social page shared the address of this place so I think that it will become even more popular than just among the cool IG kids.
I generally don’t like to share too many cool spots so openly, but the word is out now.
So if you want to hit up Kaohsiung’s super cool IG picture building just be careful of the garbage, the workers and check to make sure that the roof dogs don’t come down and get ya!
