It is a nice European style botanical garden. The lotus pond was very nice because the lotus flowers were blooming beautifully.

Visited the botanical garden by accident (next to National Museum History of Taipei). A lot of plants with their original latin names. As it was a hot day in Taipei, Botanical garden really gave a good shade with their big trees. A must visit for plants lovers, but just not my cup of tea.

Great botanical gardens with interesting information on Taiwanese nature and ecology dotted all around the park. But the best thing are the volunteers at the interpretative centre who will talk you through traditional Taiwanese culture and history! Great location in West Taipei near popular shopping districts.

The botanical gardens are a lovely peaceful place full of birds and (most local I think) tourists looking at them. We enjoyed exploring with our kids, who ran amok while kindly Taiwanese ladies kept an eye on them.

Botanical Garden is worth visiting and will only take 20 minutes of your time. Various plants are being preserved and it is near to National Museum.

Ok, maybe im spoilt for choice in aus, but these botanical gardens were actually a bit of a let down, you couldnt enter any of the green houses to look at say cacti, the gardens were overrun with grass and weeds and the whole place had a bit of a, not very well maintained feel to it.

We went for a stroll but were not impressed with the plants there. But maybe we just came at a bad time. Admission is free.

Go there in combination with the History Museum/ Longshan/ Ximen Area - perfectly pleasant and with some interesting plants but certainly not worth the trip in itself. Nice early in the morning.

I think it will be nice to visit there in summer when water lilly are blooming. Some people were bird watching at the park.

I work at a botanical gardens in the United States. This place was on my list of must see sites. Since I do not speak Mandarin, it was a pleasant surprise to see the genus and species name also listed in English. Most plants had signs identifying them. The tamarind tree was quite unique. The park is a sanctuary within... More
