Have to pay an entrance fees of TWD120/- per adult. Given a TWD20/- discount coupon for purchasing of food or drinks when you are in the Swiss Garden. Very nice place to relax yourself while enjoying the view of flowers and pond filled with ducks. It is a very small place.

After we had lunch in the restaurant next to the garden, we decided to go for a walk in the garden. We expected that it would be a lovely garden, with flowers, grass, and lake, just like in the Switzerland as it said in its name. However, when we entered the garden, it seems like a long-abandoned park. It is... More

This is a small place full of different flowers and a pond. I think the name Swiss Garden is a misnomer because except for the occasional windmill design, there's really nothing Swiss about the place. Nevertheless, since I like flowers, I had a pleasant walk inside. If you have a few minutes to spare, or are in between tours, you... More

Need to pay entrance fee, very nice place to explore. We spent an hour here. At night quite cold, need to wear jacket. There's a souvenir shop outside Small Swiss Garden.

We weren't aware of the bad reviews until later. We just knew it wasn't worth spending time here mainly because it was Fall / Autumn and pretty flowers don't usually appear during this time of year (and we sneaked a peek from the outside the entrance). We were right. We did see a lot of gardeners working on the grounds,... More

We were given complimentary tix from dining at Carton King. Small garden, not many flowers blooming in Oct. Kids had fun feeding the ducks. Other than that, nothing much. Skip if you do not have time.

We stopped by here (on our way to the Cingjing Farm) for a visit as part of our one-day sightseeing tour. Despite the warm and sunny weather, it was quite cooling and refreshing here and it was comfortable and soothing. The car park was full when we arrived and our driver guide let us alighted while he went around to... More

If you intend to eat at carton king, every 300twd spent entitled u to an entrance ticket to lil Swiss garden. (which is a set meal) carton king is worthy the visit cus delicious food served 3 yrs back was better before it became a 7-11 property.

If you're there already, eat at Carton King to get a free pass to Swiss Gardens instead of paying the entrance fee. I can appreciate what they are trying to do here, but it's all rather underwhelming, especially if you're naming it after stuff from Switzerland. It's good if you're there for a relaxing stroll (it's rather small for a... More

There is nothing interesting in this garden. The pond supposedly comes with duckling is very down. The pond water is really dirty filled with algae. Even a government run community garden can be better than this. Totally not worth TWD 120!
