View of EDA World from the Top of the Ferris Wheel View of EDA World from the Top of the Ferris Wheel Ken Ku

Who knew there could be a small scale Las Vegas right here in Taiwan?  EDA World is tucked away in some mountains of southern Taiwan by Kaoshiung and is a master planned city of sorts.  It has its own K-12 school, university, mega shopping complex, amusement park, and shuttle buses to Kaoshiung as well as residential communities.  Everything is walking distance to each other and connected via a series of skywalks.  A variety of entertainment are available from the open air theatre to enjoying the view on the giant ferris wheel, there's something for everyone at EDA World.  The only thing that differentiates EDA World from Las Vegas is the lack of gambling.

There are two hotels to choose from inside EDA World: Crowne Plaza and EDA World Skylark.  I decided to go with Crowne Plaza this time and was pleased to find their rooms are quite spacious.  We arrived quite late in the evening so first order of business was to find dinner.  There are the usual options in the hotel: Japanese food, Chinese food, Italian, steaks, buffets, etc.  The concierge recommended the Cantonese restaurant and it wasn't bad but rather bland.

After dinner, I went out to explore a bit of the surrounding area as well as the shopping centre that was across the street since it was the only thing still open.  There is a section of the mall that reminds me of the inside of the Venetian in Las Vegas...or maybe it was just the fresco on the ceiling.  I made a mental note to come back again the next day to actually spend some time to thoroughly shop around.

We spent most of the morning in the EDA World Amusement Park riding the coasters.  Good thing it isn't peak season yet because the wait times were minimal and it was already 30ºC!  I don't think I could go at the height of summer and wait an hour for each ride that only lasts a few minutes at the most.  That seems like torture for me.  Maybe that's why the amusement park isn't as big as their shopping centre?

There was one ride that almost every wanted to go on though.  I'm going to call it the Spin-O-Matic (I didn't pay any attention to what they actually called it).  Some one else said it was like being stuck in the spin cycle of your washing machine for 5 minutes.  Not exactly my idea of a thrill.  It basically is a giant arm that spins you in a circle until the centrifugal force makes the seat tilt upside-down.  I didn't go on that particular ride because divulging the contents of my breakfast for the entire world to see isn't that amusing.  Even watching the participants gave me motion sickness.  I will stick to wooden coasters instead.
