    Maolin Visitor Center

►Address: No. 2, Dajin Neighborhood, Liouguei District, Kaohsiung City
►Tel: 886-7-6801525
►Service hours: 08:30~17:30


Maolin is the least populated district in Kaohsiung. It is inhabited by only three tribes, covering 394 square kilometers of land. Although not many people live here, Maolin has strikingly beautiful mountains and rare meanders; in addition, it includes the Purple Butterfly Valley, which is one of the only two butterfly overwintering sites in the world.


Beside the Dajin Bridge, the entrance to Maolin, is the Maolin Visitor Center that is adapted from an old dormitory previously used for compulsory military service and that is now managed by the Maolin National Scenic Area Administration. The center not only offers general tourist information but also invites visitors to create customized scenic e-postcards through a state-of-the-art interactive tour-guide computer. The postcards may be sent to the visitor’s own email addresses, or printed out on site to be shared with family and friends. There are also explanatory displays of Maolin’s topographical changes after Typhoon Morakot, the three industries of Maolin, and the secrets of purple butterflies that spend the wintertime in this southern region annually. Visitors can learn about all aspects of Maolin here.

    Upon entering, there is a TV commentary on the entire Maolin National Scenic Area, the various indigenous peoples under its jurisdiction, the different characteristics of the tribes, and the annual special activities of the indigenous people, etc.! There are 3D video introductions to watch, as well as commentary boards of purple butterflies to enjoy. Those are the brainchild of many people's research and further research, continuous accumulation of information, and a lot of vertical integration! Sitting inside, there is air-conditioning to blow, there is also an Internet connection, you can go to the toilet, there is also a water dispenser for cold or hot water, you can drink tea slowly, and no one will drive you away. There is no time limit, let you do whatever you want, sit until you are comfortable before leaving! It's really a nice and comfortable place to rest, without having to collect tickets, and there is no minimum consumption! But to go in, remember to wear a mask and take your forehead temperature!

    For places that are very difficult to find, navigation can be set up in Maolin District Office or Fengshan District Farmers ’Association Maolin Office. Maolin Visitor Center serves volunteer volunteers to explain the attractions to us. At present, the 3D Butterfly Audiovisual Museum needs to slow down in May. In order to use it, there are toilets, water dispensers, and various guide maps to use. I hope to visit again during the butterfly watching.
