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

We visited Singapore before Taipei, and therefore it is completely unfair to review The Botanical Garden with the memory of the Botanic Garden in my mind (any Singaporean cabbie worth his salt will point out they DO NOT use the al). While we had a nice stroll and enjoyed seeing families together, there were several ponds that had been drained... More

The botanical garden provides a relaxing walk through varied plants and trees. When I visited in mid-June, a number of plants were still flowering and baby waterfowl were abundant. It's a bit of a surprise to find this refuge in such a busy area. The Museum of natural History is also on the garden grounds and has a large iconic... More

Taipei is a big and busy city. The botanical gardens are a pleasant break from the rush. The gardens are very old with many huge trees and of course a large variety of plant life. Notable varieties are well signed in both Chinese and English. The gardens also include the Guest House of Imperial Envoys, built in 1892 in the... More

As botanical gardens go this is 'relatively' small (but still has a couple of small lakes) and not all that impressive as a refuge for interesting or exotic plants. However, it is clear one of the few open parks/green areas available for a crowded city and locals and visitors alike crowd in here to enjoy it. It does seem to... More

Found my trip to the Botanical Gardens a bit disappointing. Thought there would be more flowers not just bushes and trees on display. After all flowers I thought were part of what I thought of botanicals. Huge park, but don't spend more than an hour there as it is very hot during the day and little access to water. A... More

The Botanical Garden is a cool place to go, relaxing to walk through and de-stress from city life. There is a nice pond that features water lillys during certain times of the year as well as a smaller pond that is stalked with many colorful fish. Talk an hour or so and visit this nice area of Taipei.
