As a free of charge botanical garden in downtown, this one is quite good, especially my target is to watch birds. Went there is a rainy morning, but still got quite a few people there doing exercise or just chatting. Saw several bird watchers/photographers too. Didn't find many birds that morning, but still good enough for somewhere so easily accessible.... More

We visited the Garden with low expectations but walked away pretty impressed. We also saw a Kingfisher and other assorted birds besides some fish in the pond.

Just like it's name, it's a botanical garden, if you definitely enjoy if you're a photographer, nature lover or a botanist, they really got so much type of plants, it's just depends on how much you know about plants

I only decided to come here as there is extra time while waiting for my flight departure. This park is easily accessible using their metro systems- 5 min walk from a mrt station. Visited here 5 days after the typhoon and could see some trees fell along some sections in the park causing some sections of the park were closed.... More

This garden was never on my itinerary.However it was a surprise discovery on my way to National Museum of History. The lotus pond here (at the back of the museum) was really good with lotus blossoming in the hot summer, providing a excellent backdrop for the photos together with museum building. The weather was really hot during the summer and... More

We visited these gardens on our last day in Taiwan. They are easy to reach on the Metro, although signage on leaving the closest station would be helpful. The gardens are small compared with those in some other cities but are very pleasant to walk through. There are sections for the various plant and tree types and and the layout... More

Though the lotus are not in bloom during our visit in April, from the size of the lotus pond, we can envisage the delightful scene when it is filled with lotus blooms and leaves. The garden has many walkways and one can easily get lost. We did and found ourselves at the Guest House of Imperial Envoys where we were... More

The gardens provide a nice respite from the city on a hot summer day, but as botanical gardens go they are decent but not exceptional. The one thing in the gardens that we felt was exceptional and worth both an excellent rating and a visit in its own right is the exquisite Qing Dynasty Guest House of Imperial Envoys which... More
