Well preserved site with a free guided tour in Chinese. Free entry with water coolers. I cycled there from Taipei because it is quite close to the bikeway. The night market is also nearby

I've visited my uncle in Banqiao for years without knowing this jewel of a garden was only a 10min walk away. I took my 2 and 5 yo there and they had a ball running around in the garden, through the tunnels and around the ponds. It's just an amazing landscape full of interesting nook and crannies for kids to... More

The Lin Family Garden is a good excursion, some distance from the centre. Free access, friendly guides, and good descriptions of the trees and plants in both Chinese and English. If you want to visit the family mansion alongside, then wait another year as it is currently under restoration.

Lin Family Garden is a not to be missed attraction in New Taipei City! Occupying quite a big area, it is wonderful to imagine how beautiful and sumptuous it was in the time of its inauguration! The restauration process that it has been submitted to was very well done, since the structures are finely preserved. The best part is that... More

Lin Family Garden is easily reachable by MRT, getting off at the Banqiao (板橋) stop of the Blue Line . It is a leisurely 10-minute walk from the station. Before exiting the station, be sure to take a closer look at the mosaics in the underground passage. They are beautiful in any case, but for those who can read Chinese,... More

It's a good place to visit if you want to know more about Chinese traditional architecture. When you visit, I would recommend to conduct a sightseeing tour.

and people are out in mass enjoying (and wearing down) this rather pleasant oasis - enough sights and stimulus to make this a worthwhile visit, a few hours tops, but the locals may provide you with some entertainment with wedding photographers, budding art students and kids freaking out at some sporadic wildlife and generally letting loose.

If you are never looked into a traditional Chinese style house then it's a good place to spend some time apart from that nothing special you can expect. It's very close to Banqio Metro/Bus station and just a 10 minutes walk.
