The volcano crater is worth a visit. You can walk right to the edge of the volcano crater. Steam can be seen coming out from the ground. Strong smell of sulphur is everywhere. Highly recommended spot to visit at YangMingShan.

Nothing spectacular during this period as the trees are mostly bare. Flowers are non existential and the park is reduced to a normal typical everyday park.

We went to Yangmingshan National Park during a rainy day. Luckily it was just drizzling and not heavy rain. The rain gave the mountain a misty view with mysterious feel. Due to bad weather, we only handpick some spots to visit. Firstly, we went to...More

If you visit on weekdays or very early on weekends, you've got a better chance of missing the crowds. A day trip's possible, but you can find an Airbnb within the park, offering a Scooter for rent. You can reach most of the park by...More

There are walking trails but some trails were closed when we visited. There were a number of temples to the Tu Di Gong (God of The Earth) and pavilions.

Both places are not far to each other and if by taxi/car, it's less than 30mins from Ximenting. Or you can take the subway to Jiantan Station, and take the red-5 bus to Yangmingshan stop. I trust there are day tours there... More

D5 National Palace Museum need at least 1-2hour if you only want to see little bit things inside. Myself would spend half day there, especially the south park of it will open the end of this year, if you will visit Taiwan the end of this year, there will be more and more thing to see. And the Songshan Cultural and Creative Park you need to figured out what you want to see, because there are also many thing going on there.

Yangmingshan, Museum, Beitou, Night market: in what order? (11 Replies)
I read that the Shilin Night Market, Beitou Hot Springs, National Palace Museum, and Yangmingshan National Park are all in the same area. 1. In terms of logistics and timing, and coming from Taipei Main Stn, does it make sense that we visit them in the following order: Park, Museum, Hot Springs, and then Night Market? 2. How are the crowds on a Sunday? Monday isn't an option since we are going to Hualien for a day trip. But Tues is also an option.

It should be museum, YMS, beitou hot spring, night market.
