Merlion Park – Singapore

I am sharing about the best destination in Singapore today. I’m going to introduce about Merlion Park Singapore. It is the most popular tourist attractions in Singapore.

The Merlion Park in Singapore which is only sprays water, should be the most iconic and iconic landmark in Singapore!  As long as tourists who come to Singapore to travel, they will definitely come to take pictures with the Merlion. In addition to recording the Merlion himself, this article also sorted out several popular Singapore attractions around Merlion Park.  , You can arrange to play on the same day when planning your trip.


General introduction

Merlion Park is the must-see attraction in Singapore. It is a famous landmark and symbol of Singapore. This mascot represents the Lion City of Singapore and it is erected on the banks of the Singapore River. Tourists will never forget to leave a photo in front of the Merlion. Memorial photo! In addition to admiring the Merlion during the day, there are also beautiful light shows projected on the Merlion Park at night and the night area is even more charming. Be sure to come and enjoy the night view. Should not be missed!

Merlion Park is the smallest park in Singapore and it is located next to the Fulton Hotel, covering 0.25 hectares of ground, with an open deck, so that visitors can walk in front of the Merlion and take as many pictures as they want.  Merlion is a fictional lion head animal. It was designed in 1964 by Mr. Fraser Brunner, then director of the Van Kleef Aquarium. It was adopted by the New Brigade as a symbol two years later and was used until 1997. During this period, the Merlion has become a representative of Singapore, like the Eiffel Tower in France or the Statue of Liberty in the United States.

The fish tail as a city identification of Singapore, representing excellent character such as courage, wisdom, strength, and fish tail lion also symbolizes the hardcoming of the first batch of the ancestors of fighting. The most well-known fishhouses are located in the East Bay of Singapore, which is a preferred attraction of Singapore’s historical culture.

The image of the merlion lion head fish body originated from the title of Singapore in Malay. In Malay, Singapore is called “Singapura”, the meaning of the word is “lion”, which is why Singapore. There is no lion but it is the reason for being a lion city.

This is the another Merlion in Sentosa 😍I will share more about the Sentosa Island on the new blog topic later.

There are 7 merlion statues in Singapore, distributed at the Singapore Tourism Board, Sentosa Island, Mount Faber and Hongmao Bridge, but the most well-known and not to be missed is the Merlion Park near Marina Bay. The Merlion statue in the Merlion Park near Marina Bay is 8.8 meters high and weighs 70 tons. It faces the Eastern Marina Bay and overlooks the Eastern waters of Singapore, symbolizing the spirit of Singaporeans’ continuous exploration. Next to this statue, there is also a small merlion statue, two meters high and 3 tons in weight, which is also a favorite photo place for tourists like me.

Merlion Park and Singapore’s other landmark, Marina Bay Sands, are across the bay and near Raffles MRT Station. The transportation is very very convenient in Singapore.

Singapore’s Merlion Park is directly opposite the world-famous Sands Hotel. The wavy Sands Hotel Casino and Shopping Mall. The Sands Hotel’s water dance show is held on the opposite platform. As one of the most complicated buildings in history, many of them have been completed. The world’s highest record adds legend. The hotel’s most topical top floor, the huge sky garden is equal to 3 football fields. I hope that I can soak in the highest infinity pool in the world and look out at the Merlion next time! There are 21 museums in the museum. There are so many museums in Singapore.

The coconut shell is the Museum of Art and Science. It can only be said that Singapore is worth seeing only in architecture. Moving towards the Merlion Park, the left-hand building is the Binhai Art Center, and the appearance of aluminum sunshades is like a durian. This art center cost 600 million Singapore dollars to build. The inside concert hall and theater are built on a world-class scale. There is also a coastal performing arts library and outdoor performance venue. I really want to go inside and see it next time!

On the top is the Singapore Flyer, a ferris wheel with a diameter of 150 meters. It takes half an hour to make a lap, and the shopping mall below is 165 meters. It is the largest ferris wheel in the world! Rare, but a viewing cabin can accommodate 28 people. There is a gimmick. In addition, you can take a ferris wheel to enjoy a big meal. The romantic price is $328.9 SGD (surprised).

Entertainment at Merlion Park

The fishwish park covers an area of 0.25 hectares, the area is not large, but as a Singapore landmark, a batch of tourists are still attracted to this visit. Next to the statue of fish tail, build a look at the public and tourists. If you don’t hurry, sit on the table to blow the sea breeze, enjoy the graceful scenery of the Singapore Bay, is really comfortable. If you arrive in the Tail Lion Park, it is already in the evening. It may wish to stay slightly, to be dark, the opposite Bay Bay Golden Salagia gives a beautiful light, overlooking the charming night of Singapore. If you are lucky, you can catch up with the citizens who hold music performances or organize events in the Fishwish Park, and feel the customs of the “Lion City”. I remember that when I took a photo with the fish tail, I took a photo of the fish tail lion spurting the water column, which is said to get strength and wealth.

Things to do near Merlion Park

Merlion is located in the Marina Bay area, surrounded by a wealth of attractions, such as the Marina Bay Sands Resort across the bay from the Merlion, with the Marina Bay Gardens, high-altitude observation deck, Art Science Museum and Marina Bay Sands, Waiting for famous attractions in Singapore.

The Sands Hotel deserved to cost US $ 5.5 billion to build. The vast interior of the building is also impressive. Combining hotels, shopping malls, casinos and theaters, many international brands can buy soft hands and spend a few days eating, drinking and having fun inside.  Certainly not boring.

Next to the Marina Bay Sands Hotel, there are also the newly completed Red Dot Design Museum, the Double Helix Bridge, and the Marina Walk.

If you go further, you can reach most of the attractions within 8 stops by subway. Places such as Chinatown, Little India, Orchard Road, Singapore National Museum, etc. that you must visit are all within a four kilometer radius of Merlion Park.

國王公園的美麗之地 – 珀斯

國王公園觀賞

你喜歡公園嗎? 你對花園感興趣嗎? 我將向您介紹國王公園的目的地。 國王公園位於澳大利亞珀斯,在那裡您可以欣賞美麗的珀斯市,它是西澳大利亞州最好的旅遊景點之一。 它是最大,最美麗的內城公園。 它擁有豐富的原住民和歐洲歷史,當代文化,並提供創新的設計,展示和服務。 國王公園在科學研究,領先的園藝,保護和公共教育方面享有國際聲譽。

國王公園(Kings Park)是壯觀的西澳大利亞州植物園的所在地,該園種有超過 3,000 種該州獨特的植物。  400 公頃公園中有三分之二被保護為灌木叢,為當地生物多樣性提供了避風港。

在這裡,您可以欣賞到天鵝河和坎寧河的一覽無餘的風景,如上圖所示,城市天際線和東邊的達令山脈。 在國王公園(Kings Park)可以找到布什蘭(Bushland)步道,完美的花園和公園以及各種兒童探索遊樂區。 遊客信息中心,每日免費導遊帶步,國王公園畫廊商店,咖啡館和公共交通工具的各個方面都非常方便。

植物園 Botanic Garden

國王公園和植物園慶祝西澳大利亞州獨特而多樣的植物生活,並且是致力於植物保護的全球植物園網絡的一部分。 珀斯公園(後來的國王公園)的最初構想是一個帶有草坪,遮蔭樹木和花壇的歐式花園。 對氣候差異和低養分土壤的認識改變了這一願景。

1965年10月,佔地17公頃的西澳大利亞州植物園開業。 一個不斷變化的,有生命的研究中心,致力於保護西澳大利亞州的植物,並展示一些澳大利亞最多樣化和最壯觀的植物群。

當您訪問國王公園時,國王公園中有一個非常美麗的植物園。 如果您對學習當地的土著植物感興趣,那麼您應該在植物園中漫步。

在植物園中漫步時,您會看到很多這個花園的標誌,以告訴您有關花園名稱的更多詳細信息,例如左側顯示的圖片,即名為Dwellingup mallee 的花園。 您還會看到最高的樹,也叫鮑伯樹。 這很有趣。

當我參觀公園的植物園時,我發現懸鈴木很有趣。 來自公園的導遊之一,與我們分享 Boab 樹的故事。 從2008年7月起,巨人鮑勃(Giant Boab)的故事從華盛頓州金伯利地區的沃蒙(Warmun)到達珀斯國王公園(Kings Park),超過 3200 公里,贏得了全球媒體的報導。

從未有如此成熟的樹木從陸地上經過如此遠的距離。 這棵標誌性樹估計有 750 年曆史,重 36 噸,高 14 米,寬 8 米(分支跨度)。 是樹幹,直徑 2.5 米。

玻璃橋 😀

在玻璃橋的樹梢上散步,他們將其命名為 Lotterywest Federation Walkway,欣賞天鵝河和珀斯市的無與倫比的美景。

從玻璃橋在公園裡的美麗景色

玻璃橋令人印象深刻的工程和建築壯舉,是與景觀緊密結合的雕塑品質,鏽跡斑斑的鋼塔和強大的巨型吊塔形式與周圍的大樹幹具有親和力。

隨著人行道下面的土地開始掉進一個山谷,我的旅程引領我更高,我得到了一個新的視角,豐富了我對大自然的美麗的欣賞。

從鳥瞰圖中,我發現自己在 Zamia Cycads 和巴爾蓋斯或草樹上令人驚嘆,是因為我突然看到了他們徑向對稱的完美模式。 在森林樹冠上,我是一個有 Marri,Karri,Tingle 和 Jarrah 的開花的人,是 Sheoak 的複雜的小錐體和數十隻鳥類。

剛北北部的北圓形圍繞著福雷斯環形交叉路口,玻璃橋始於地面,但我很快就會掃除,因為我接近頂點 – 一個壯觀的拱形橋樑,最大高度為 16米,玻璃牆,距離森林不間斷的景觀 在最高點,花點時間吸收天鵝和坎寧河流的全景。

我還記得我在橋上跳躍,我的朋友尖叫著,因為這座橋在我跳起來非常搖搖晃晃。 在橋上行走是非常好的經驗。 這座橋是一個走往向 DNA 塔樓的人行道。

整個走道長約 620 米,航空部分為 222 米,包括 52 米橋。 雖然有手動移動設備的人可以在拱門上需要幫助,它可以通過輪椅訪問。

人行道上的藝術品包括當地土著人 Nyoongar 的設計。 橫跨伊麗莎·斯卡普山之後,人行道下降到圓形劇場,在國王公園音樂節期間舉行傳統表演。 這個表演區被稱為 Beedawong-Nyoongar 的意思是慶祝或聚會的地方。

通過玻璃橋步行時,您將通過此車道。 這是一個非常美麗的植物環繞,步行到 DNA 塔樓時您會看到水上花園。

脫氧核糖核酸 (DNA) 塔樓

DNA 塔由脫氧核糖核酸(DNA)雙螺旋分子引用,該雙螺旋分子存在於所有細胞中並控制生命的發展。

它是國王公園(Kings Park)的最高觀賞點,在整個攀登過程中均享有壯觀的景色。 在晴朗的日子裡,您甚至可以看到印度洋。  DNA 塔樓讓您從頂部俯瞰這座美麗的珀斯城市。 從頂部可以看到兩條河流,分別是天鵝河和坎寧河。 走路很累,但值得一去,因為從塔頂可以看到非常美麗的景色。

DNA 塔樓周圍的鋪路和牆體是用來自西澳大利亞州 11 個城鎮和 80 個郡的石頭建造的。 原始設計在塔樓的底部包括一個淺反射池。  2001 年用Karratha 石材鋪路代替了它,以提高遊客的安全性。

DNA 塔樓位於 Broadwalk Vista 的 Forrest Drive 端。 從酒店可輕鬆步行至 May Drive Parkland 和西澳大利亞州植物園 1.5 公里。

除了在國王公園里要做的事情之外,國王公園還有什麼可以探索和考察的呢? 大多數的遊客到訪的國王公園都是去 DNA 塔樓的所在地,可以欣賞到城市的美麗,玻璃橋,植物園,美術館以及學習當地的土著文化。 當地人通常與家人和朋友一起去國王公園燒烤肉,特別是在周末的時刻。 國王公園還可以為這對夫婦舉辦婚禮活動,例如結婚晚宴。 對夫婦來說,在國王公園拍一些很好的照片是一個很好的背景。

歸根結底,國王公園(Kings Park)也非常適合教育方面的。 一些學校和大學總是帶他們的學生去到國王公園進行實地考察,然後才給他們做一些有趣的活動。

如果您去國王公園,我強烈建議您去看看。 它是珀斯澳大利亞的頂級目的地之一。

請繼續關注我的下一個博客 🙂

塔州港歷史遺址一日游 – Port Arthur Historic Site

有打算和興趣要來塔州旅行的朋友們,請覌看也可以關注我喔! 這里和大家分享澳大利亚的一日游之旅以及景点! 😊 歡迎來到旅游的璐罔站喲!


亚瑟港歷史遺址– 世界遗产名胜

今天要和大家介紹一個塔州著名的景點。來到塔州這里呢,就是要去這個景点叫做亚瑟港歷史遺址体验。亚瑟港歷史遗址是個独特的地方,這里有着引人入胜的生动歷史、文化遗址和栩栩如生的故事讓人流連忘返。它具有极高的國际地位,是澳洲 11 座入选联合國教科文认定的世界文化遗产的囚犯時期遗址之一。它也是澳洲最受歡迎的旅游目的地之一。歡迎大家來到亚瑟港参覌了解這里的居民和其生動的歷史。

亚瑟港歷史遺址是澳大利亚列入世界遗产名单的囚犯遗产名胜,也是澳大利亚保存最為完好的囚犯定居地。

這里還是澳大利亚游客最多、最為重要的文化旅游目的地之一,是前來澳大利亚岛州-塔斯馬尼亚的所有游客的必游之地。

這些囚犯是什麼人呢?
在美國独立战争之后,英國再也不能将自己的囚犯送到美國。因此,在1788 年以后,這些囚犯被送到了澳大利亚殖民地。

這些男女囚犯被判犯有各种罪行,這些罪行在今天看來微不足道,大多数是偷窃小東西或牲畜,但他們以前曾至少被定罪過一次,英國對待這些重新犯罪者的政策非常嚴厉。

那些被送到范迪門斯地(塔斯馬尼亚的旧称)的囚犯大都是來自农村地區或者大城市贫民窟的贫穷的年輕人。妇女占五分之一。有一些孩子也和父母一起被送到這里,很少有人回到英國。

歷史簡单介紹

在1830年到1877年,亚瑟港是监禁那些來到英属殖民地范迪門斯地(現在称為塔斯馬尼亚)或新南威尔士之後重新犯罪的囚犯的地方。亚瑟港位置偏远,环境恶劣,插翅難逃,是运送累犯的理想目的地,因此而成為殖民地囚犯处罰系统的一個主要组成部分。這在當時是应對當今所有社會不断面临的犯罪和处罰問題的一大创举。

但亚瑟港远不仅仅是一座监狱,而是一個完整的社區 — 這里不但居住着軍事人員以及在這里工作的自由定居者,而且還是生产多种资源和材料的工業中心,并且有一個运营的农場。在使用将要结束時,這里還住着大量患有慢性精神病和身体疾病的人,這些人被称為 “乞丐” 和 “疯子”。

塔州澳大利亚主要的文化遗产旅游景點

今天,亚瑟港歷史遗迹是澳大利亚游客最多的文化遗产景點之一,获得了多項大奖,其中包括在 2008 年、2009 年和 2010 年荣获《澳大利亚美食旅行家杂志》的澳大利亚最佳文化遗产旅游体验的称號。 這一遗迹散布在美丽的花園、公園和自然丛林之中,含有三十多個歷史名胜建筑和廢墟。有些建筑物在十九世纪末的丛林火灾中被部分摧毁,剩下的遗迹使該地有一种阴森而又肃穆的氛围。

世界遗产

亚瑟港歷史遗迹是列入澳大利亚囚犯遗迹世界遗产名胜的十一处遗迹之一。

美丽的风景和迷人的传説

漫步在遗迹四周,囚犯、士兵、自由定居者及其家人富有感染力的個人经歷将會展現在你的面前。人們以多种方式講述亚瑟港的故事。在你离開之後,它的故事将久久揮之不去。

這個美丽的地方,位于旖旎的港灣边上,四周丛林环抱,遍布花園、庭園和充满魅力的遗址,自囚犯時期以來,似乎没有什麼改变,即使您不被其歷史所吸引,你也會對這里美丽的景致心醉神迷。

每個人的必游之地

亚瑟港是來到澳大利亚的每位游客的必游之地。歷史遗迹位于塔斯曼半岛的塔斯馬尼亚岛州首府霍巴特東南方向大約 100 公里处。這一遗迹风景旖旎,既有充满魅力的遗址,也有富有感染力的传説,讓游客對澳大利亚的歷史和文化获得独特而又難忘的洞察。

他們有什麼旅游行程?

在您適合的日子和時間裡,他們確實有很多旅行選擇。 首先,如果您遇到一些語言障礙問題,請不要擔心。 還會有講普通話的人遊覽,這將使您更容易理解。 即使沒有說普通話的人,也會為您提供翻譯。 他們有介紹性的徒步之旅,指揮官的馬車之旅,海港巡遊,亞瑟港逃生之旅,介紹性之旅,死島之旅,幽靈之旅以及超自然之旅。 我將在下面告訴您更多有關價格和套餐的信息,值得擁有這種良好的經驗。

介紹性徒步之旅基於他們的歷史遺跡,他們將向您介紹有關該地點的故事和遺產的更多信息,這非常有趣。 他們將告訴您有關歷史時間表,囚犯,地標和阿瑟港歷史遺址的研究。

您所購買的門票在連续的两天内有效,两天内您可以尽情参覌遗址區内古迹建筑以及参与景區提供的导游講解和其他活動,購買門票有包括:

  • 出入30多個歷史建筑、遗址及歷史花園等
  • 参与40分鍾的导游講解(可选中文普通話講解)
  • 乘坐25分鍾港灣游輪
  • 参覌亚瑟港展覽馆,在此您可以通過参与互動游戏、覌看陳列品來了解亚瑟港歷史遗址以及在這里生活過的居民

景區内也提供免费摆渡車,為行動不便的人士提供帮助。(摆渡車服务時间:早 10:30 至下午 3:30。夏季服务時间可能延長)

亞瑟港歷史遺址的故事是許多人,地點和時刻的故事。 在其悠久的歷史中,亞瑟港一直是艱辛和懲罰的地方,機會的地方和休閒的地方。 現在,它是澳大利亞最重要的遺產目的地之一,那裡的澳大利亞殖民歷史故事是用石頭和磚頭書寫的。

拜訪他們,與經過這個地方的一些人會面,走遍他們的故事,並了解亞瑟港從令人恐懼的定居點到世界遺產名錄古蹟和世界級旅遊勝地的演變。

關於我這次徒步旅行的經歷,我學到了很多東西,例如老一代人以及很久以前人們的生活方式。 他們如何定罪的方式以及老式的地方都很有趣。 有些人可能會像我一樣覺得歷史很無聊,但是我發現這個歷史站點並不像我想像的那樣糟糕,值得在舊時尚故事中進行更多探索和發現。 您會發現有趣的地方,還將學到很多意想不到的新事物,這好酷呀。

港灣游輪之旅

港灣游輪导游之旅是一個25分鐘的巡遊,僅向您顯示港口周圍的景色,該港口的美麗以及該港口的歷史。 這次旅行包含在您的網站門票中,非常值得。

其他的覌看還有什麼呢?

還有亞瑟港美術館,您將在這裡學習很多年前的故事。 但是,您應該在畫廊見到很多人。 當您從售票處拿到票時,他們會給您類似的東西,在下面顯示的照片中是一張小卡片,與他們會面並了解他們的背景。

在遊客中心獲得旅遊票後,他們將為您提供發言人卡。 當您進入畫廊時,您需要找到發言人卡上的那個人,然後打開它並閱讀有關此人的故事。 就像是一個非常有趣的遊戲,哈哈……就像我得到了托馬斯·倫皮里爾,我找到了他。 他來自德國,出生於1796年。他曾是一般商人,智利軍官的藝術家。 無論如何,這就像您將要知道的一樣。

機票和費用?

當我參觀那裡時,我拿了現場門票,其中包括介紹性徒步旅行和海港巡遊。 我也將回到那裡嘗試另一個遊覽,並且我將分享我的親身經歷,所以請繼續關注。

入門票價格是您從入場費中獲得的收益,有助於阿瑟港歷史遺址的持續保護,解釋和開發。 價格為成人 $40澳元,兒童 $18澳元,家庭 $102澳元(2位成人和最多6個孩子)和優惠票 $32澳元。

休假票–兩年通行證

從購買之日起兩年內,將您的網站入場券擴展為請假票,並多次返回亞瑟港歷史遺址。 您的請假單可再次進入,包括一般站點條目中包含的所有活動。 成人 $20澳元/家庭 $40 澳元(除了景點門票)。

居民和納稅人通行證–“ R&R通行證”

塔斯曼市的居民和納稅人有資格獲得亞瑟港歷史遺址R&R通行證,該通行證可免費為所有成人納稅人或居民以及最多6個孩子(7-17歲)提供門票。  R&R通行證自簽發之日起有效期為3年,可以續簽。

必須在亞瑟港歷史遺址遊客中心親自申請R&R通行證,並需要證明申請人是納稅人或居民。

如何到那呢?  –導航

亞瑟港歷史遺址距離霍巴特有90分鐘的車程,整個旅程為塔斯馬尼亞提供了一些最好的觀光景點。 亞瑟高速公路(Arthur Highway)蜿蜒穿過鬱鬱蔥蔥的農田和森林,迷人的海灘和塔斯曼半島(Tasman Peninsula)著名的風景秀麗的海岸線。 留出足夠的時間沿途停下來,探索諸如 Eaglehawk Neck 的 Tesselated 人行道以及戲劇性的地質特徵(如噴孔,Tasman 拱門和 Devil’s Kitchen)之類的地方。

免費停車 但是,在高峰期,我們的停車場確實會很快填滿。 如果您希望在入口附近固定一個停車位,我們建議您提早到達。 有專門用於旅行車,房車和公共汽車的空間,請在進入現場時尋找標誌。

您可以使用2種選擇。 要么乘坐旅遊巴士,要么租車開車。

當我前往亞瑟港時,我是由 Tassie Tour 運營商前往的。 每天都有一些遊覽巴士在那兒下車,您只能預訂。  Tassie 遊的單程費用為每人 $60澳元。 在我個人的想法,與教練同行總是最好的選擇,這是因為當他們駕車駛下時,他們會在前往亞瑟港的途中掉下一些最好的景點進行探索。

如果您想知道哪個教練是最好的,可以請隨時檢查以下站點。 這對我有很大的幫助,所以這也會對您有幫助喔 🙂

Botanic Garden

Western Australian Botanic Garden

Kings Park and Botanic Garden celebrates the unique and diverse plant life of Western Australia and it is part of the worldwide network of botanic gardens committed to plant conservation. The original vision for Perth Park, later Kings Park, was of a European style garden with lawns, shady trees and flower beds. Recognition of the climatic differences and the low nutrient soil changed this vision.

In October 1965, the 17 hectare Western Australian Botanic Garden was opened; an everchanging, living research centre that focuses on the conservation of Western Australia’s flora and displays some of the State’s most diverse and spectacular plant groups.

When you visit the kings park, there is a very beautiful Botanic Garden in the kings Park. If you are interested in learning the local aboriginal plants then you should walking around the botanic garden.

While walking around the botanic garden, you will see quite lot of this garden sign to tell you more details about the name of the garden such as the picture shown on the left side which is name garden called Dwellingup mallee. You will see the tallest tree which is called Boab tree as well. It is very interesting.

When I visited the botanic garden in the park, I find the boab tree is very interesting. One of the tour guide from the park, share us about the Boab tree. The story of the Giant Boab is called ‘Gija Jumulu’ captured world-wide media coverage during July 2008 as it journeyed over 3,200 kilometres, from Warmun in WA’s Kimberley region, to Kings Park in Perth.

Never before had a mature tree of this nature been transported across such a distance on the land. The iconic tree is estimated to be 750 years old, weighs 36 tonnes and stretches 14 metres high and eight metres wide (branch span). It is trunk measures 2.5 metres in diameter.

Glass bridge 😀

Take a walk in the treetops on the Glass Bridge which they name called Lotterywest Federation Walkway and enjoy unsurpassed views of the Swan River and Perth City.

Beautiful view from the glass bridge in the park

An impressive feat of engineering and architecture, the Glass Bridge is strong sculptural quality bonds with its landscape, with the rusted steel and powerful forms of the colossal pylons having an affinity with the large tree trunks surrounding them.

My perfect background 😂

As the land beneath the walkway starts to drop away into a valley and my journey leads me higher, I get a new perspective which enriches my appreciation of nature’s beauty.

From a bird’s eye view, I find myself marvelling a new at zamia cycads and balgas or grass trees, it is because I suddenly see the perfect pattern of their radial symmetry. Up in the forest canopy, I was at the one with the blossoms of marri, karri, tingle and jarrah, the intricate little cones of sheoak and dozens of native birds.

Just north of the Two Rivers Lookout near the Forrest roundabout, the Glass Bridge begins at ground level but I am soon swept aloft as I approach the apex – a spectacular arched bridge with a maximum height of 16 metres and glass walls which allow uninterrupted views to the forest floor. At the highest point, do take a moment to absorb the panorama of the Swan and Canning Rivers.

I still remember that i did jumping on the bridge and my friend was screaming because the bridge is very shaky as i was jumping. It is very good experience with walking on the bridge. The bridge is a walkway to get to the DNA towers.

The whole walkway is about 620 metres long, with the aerial section being 222 metres including the 52 metre bridge. It is accessible by wheelchair, although people with manual mobility devices may need assistance on the arch.

Artworks within the walkway include designs by the Nyoongar, the local Indigenous people. After spanning Mount Eliza Scarp the walkway descends to an amphitheatre where traditional performances are held during the Kings Park Festival. This performance area is named called Beedawong – the Nyoongar word for a celebration or meeting place.

While walking pass through the glass bridge, you will walk pass this lane. It is a very beautiful plant surround there and you will see the water garden when you walk upto the DNA Towers.

DNA TOWERS

The beautiful of the DNA Towers

The DNA Tower is reffered from the deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) double-helix molecule, which is found in all cells and control the development of life.

It is the highest viewing point in Kings Park with spectacular views throughout the climb. On a clear day you may even be able to see the Indian Ocean. DNA Towers is for you to have a view this beautiful City of Perth from the top. You could see the both rivers which is Swan and Canning rivers from the top. It is quite tiring to walk up but it is worth to do it because it is very  beautiful view from the top of this towers.

The paving and wall surrounding the DNA Tower was constructed using stones from 11 towns and 80 shires within the Western Australia. The original design included a shallow reflecting pond at the base of the tower. It was replaced with Karratha stone paving in 2001 to enhance visitor safety.

The DNA Tower is located at the Forrest Drive end of the Broadwalk Vista. It is an easy 1.5 km walk from May Drive Parkland and the Western Australian Botanic Garden.

How beautiful is this viewing from the Kings Park

Apart from these things to do, what else is there to explore and discover in Kings Park? Most of the tourist visiting kings park for the DNA Towers, viewing the beautiful of the city, glass bridge, the botanic garden, Art Gallery as well as learning the local aboriginal cultures. Local people usually going to the Kings Park for BBQ with their family and friends, especially on the weekend. Kings park is also able to host for the couple to have a wedding activities such as wedding dinner. It is a very good background for the couples to have some nice photoshoot in the Kings Park.

Ultimately, Kings Park is very good for the education as well. Some school and the university always taking their student for a field trip to Kings Park to discover before giving them some activities to do which is pretty fun.

I do highly recommeded to go for a view if you are travelling to the Kings Park. It is one of the top destination in Perth Australia.

Cijin Island is a very small island in Kaohsiung Taiwan. Kaohsiung is belong to the Southern area in Taiwan. It is just 15 minutes ferry ride outside the famous Kaohsiung Harbour to the Cijin Island. Although it is a very small Island, this island has become a favorited destination for those people whoever had visiting the city. The island is famous not just only for historical and cultural sites, but also for the fresh seafood around the night market. It really is perfect for any type of travelers; no matter if you are visiting for a hiking trip, sightseeing, cycling, photography etc. Cijin Island has something special for everyone.

Cijin Island is one of those destinations that always has visitors and it is the best tourists attractions in Taiwan, it is because there is so much trip to do in the island. Those who love a good hike usually make their way to the famous Cijin Lighthouse that is located on top of the hills. The hike is not difficult and it is easy to navigate around the trails, so it is very suitable for many people. Cycling around the island is also a preferred activity in Cijin Island; some of the best places that can be explored include the Cijin Windpower Park and the Cijin Seashore Park. Exploring an island is not completely without a dip in the water, and because the water in Cijin is quite warm, many love to relax while soaking their feet or taking a swim by the beach. Lastly, it is also important to try some seafood in the port area of Cijin since it is known to be very fresh.

Which Month and what season of the year will be the best for visit

There is four seasons in Taiwan. They are Winter, Autumn, Spring and Summer. Taiwan season is totally opposite with Australia seasons. For example, When Australia is on Winter, Taiwan is on the Summer season. Many people are wondering that which season would be the best visit Cijin Island. In my personal experience, the best time to visit Cijin Island would be between September and February of the years. That would be when the summer about to end. It is because Summer is the season of raining which is not able to explore much on the island while raining so it is very best to visit between September and February which was Autumn, Winter and Spring season. I am not recommended to visit between June and August as the weather is too heat with raining. You may wondering that why Winter would be good to visit. Well, Kaohsiung won’t be freezing during the winter. It is totally different with Taipei City.

Please note that during the summer seasons, the ocean wave is pretty strong due to the weather

Introduction of the Cijin Lighthouse

In 1883, British engineers built the Cijin Lighthouse, which was used for the military during their conflicts with France. The lighthouse went through several reconstructions during the Japanese colonisation, and it is now open to the public. The Cijin Fort is also a historical site in the island that must be on the itinerary. The fort was originally built in 1720 and has witnessed quite a lot during its time. Since it was destroyed in the war, the fort was reconstructed in 1991 and is now one of the most famous attractions in Cijin Island that offers a magnificent 360 view.

Basically James Laidlaw Maxwell Senior Chinese name called 馬雅各 and he was born on 18 March 1836 in Scotland. March 1921 was the first Presbyterian Missionary to Formosa (Qing-era Taiwan). He served with the English Presbyterian Mission.

Maxwell studied medicine at the University of Edinburgh and completed his degree in year 1858 with a graduation thesis of The Chemistry and Physiology of the Spleen. He worked in London at Brompton Hospital and at the Birmingham General Hospital. He was an elder in the Broad Street Presbyterian Church before being sent to Taiwan by the Presbyterian Church of England (now within the United Reformed Church) in 1864. He donated a small printing press to the church which was later used to print the Taiwan Church News.

On 16 June 1865, at the urging of missionaries H.L. Mackenzie and Carstairs Douglas, he established the first Presbyterian church in Taiwan, this date now celebrated by the Presbyterian Church in Taiwan as its anniversary. First of his mission centred in the then-capital Taiwan Fu (now Tainan city); in 1868 he moved near Cijin and now part of Kaohsiung where his work place, both medical and missionary, became more welcomed. In early 1872 he advised Canadian Presbyterian missionary pioneer George Leslie Mackay to start his work in northern Taiwan, near Tamsui.

He married with Mary Anne Goodall who died on January 1918 of Handsworth on 7 April 1868 in HongKong. They had two sons, John Preston and James Laidlaw Jnr, both of whom later also became medical missionaries. He retired in London in 1885 where he formed and became the first secretary of the Medical Missionary Association. He and his sons oversaw the construction of Sin-Lau Hospital in Tainan, the first western-style hospital in Taiwan. The younger J. L.
