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.

And the 101... That's it for me if you come only for a day. There is also the National Theater as number 2 if you have extra time, of... More

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.
