6: Ferris Wheel & Amusement Park @ Dream Mall (Kaohsiung)

If you think Vivo City of Singapore is huge, you should visit Kaohsiung and explore Dream Mall. It’s much much bigger than Vivo City and it’s the biggest mall in Taiwan and East Asia. Excluding 2 basement levels, visitors can expect to explore up to 9 levels of shopping, food and dining. But that’s not all, go up to the last level and you find yourself stepping into a whole new world in the Ferris Wheel and Amusement Park.

There is also a 36-carriage Ferris wheel that is 102.5 meters tall and takes about 15 minutes to finish one rotation. From there, you can appreciate the city and harbor of Kaohsiung.

Can’t get enough of fun? Hop onto the viking and be whisked away! More rides up next 🙂
