Guan Du Nature Park is an extensive nature reserve nor far from Taipei that hosts many varieties of birds. The extensive wetlands are a natural refuge for birds that are not able to be found elsewhere. It's a relaxing place that will please birdwatchers who wish to escape Taipei's frenetic pace of life. The reserve can be accessed from the Guandu Station on the MRT Red L ine.

We went there on the October morning. As it was a nice relief from the hustle and bustle of Taipei, the general impression was average. Maybe it was not the best season - birds were rare and mostly at long distance. Nevertheless, patience can be rewarded.

Apart from that: there are wooden trails, bird watching pavilions and nature center. The center serves as the information and education center of the park. There are some exhibitions and the upper floor provides place for bird watching.
To get there from Taipei just take the red line, get off at Guandu station - from there you can go on foot (short walk) or take the bus.

It's a very nice place to see something of Taiwan's wonderful nature! It isn't far away from Taipeh, so you can reach it perfectly with the MRT, red line. (then you can choose if you walk for 10 minutes or take bus 23 or 35 to reach the entrance)

And even if it's so close to the city you can't feel this fact, because the protected area is quiete big. If you walk in, the birds are singing everywhere and you can observate them if you spent some time in the bird watching cabine.
So it's a wonderful and relaxing place to feel the nature and to see that there's a protected place for all these beautiful birds.

i was here on a friday and there were no people at all. So it was even more relaxing.

My wife and I visited this nature reserve for half a day in early April 2018. The wetlands are large and full of bird life. The facilities are excellent, with good trails, boardwalks, observation towers, and a superb bird hide. The main visitor center has washrooms, a restaurant and a small store. The staff are very friendly and helpful. This is one of the best lowland, wetland reserves in northern Taiwan. We were fortunate to see the endangered Black-faced Spoonbill, which comes from Asia to winter. While we were there an interesting display of sculpture using elements of nature was scattered through the reserve. I highly recommend this place for birders and photographers.

Very nice scenery to see a different side of taiwan. Also for non-chinese speaker. Shows the wetlands and its inhabitants from an educational level but also a nice park area. A must do in guandu

As a bird watcher, I have great expectation on what I can see there. A bit far from downtown, but still near a metro station, it is a fairly easy accessible place. The park opens only at 9am and we went there only until 10am, so not many birds were seen. The most interesting few were seen near entrance already. The park is smaller than I expected, with most areas being blocked for access. The visitor centre is simple, and there are volunteers there to explain the basic to visitors. The pathway is well managed.
The locals seems to use it exactly like a park, but not a reserve. So it can be a bit noisy later in the day. As a short detour to nature, it is a good place to spend a morning.

The natural park closet Taipei City.
This park is named for major stopover site of migrating birds.

Since there are over 830 species of animals, including birds, reptiles, amphibians, fishes, mammals, bristle worms, snails, crustaceans, and insects, we can watch birds breeding, resting, and mating activities via telescope or guided Tour.

Great place for relaxing and enjoy natural environment.

This is a place for bird-lovers. During the winter time, there are a lot of people rushing in to see Black-faced Spoonbills or other exotic birds. Four free binoculars are available on the second floor and free guide explanation are also available every day. It's nice to take kids to strolling around and observe the great nature itself.
