Small but very good.
Jan 2020 • Solo
It is not extensive but it is a genuine botanic garden, featuring only the plants of Taiwan. A path meanders around the perimeter, through zones which display the flora of the different botanical zones of the island.
The centerpiece of the garden is the tropical greenhouse (20 NTD admission), a striking building housing its own waterfall and lush foliage. Its basement has a cafe and large fish tanks, one containing piranha.

Small Garden
Dec 2018 • Couples
The botanical gardens was really only a small garden that you could walk around in less than one hour, with very few selection of trees, no flowers or atriums and no fauna at all. Quite disappointing overall.

A gorgeous and enchanting garden!

It's well-maintained with lots of varieties of tropical plants, a fantastic waterfall, a small store downstairs, an aquarium that is stocked with magnificent fish, and all for NT$ 20! It's a definite must for anyone visiting Taichung, or for locals to take a break.

Great for the price

20 TWD is worth 30 minutes of peace, or an hour if you're really into plants and want to closely examine everything. The rain falling from the ceiling is a clever design. I wish there were more insects, amphibians, and birds, though. Apart from the plants it's strangely sterile.

Very nice. A tropical rainforest greenhouse
Apr 2017 • Solo
Well worth a visit. I been here before a few years ago. Very unique. Don't see many green house rainforests in the downtown area of any city. The greenhouse is the main attraction. Has a waterfall and it is raining from the roof inside the greenhouse. Very relaxing. Also a coffee shop and gift shop at the base of the greenhouse. Ticket to get into the greenhouse is TWD20 per person. It is well worth a visit. The gardens around the greenhouse are free to walk around

Close to the Natural Science Museum and good for families
Feb 2017 • Family
Highly recommend this attraction, very close to the main Taichung hotels (you may want a taxi for the short run on hot and humid days) very close to the National Museum so good to take the family to both - can be busy on public holidays but still worth seeing.

Nice little botanic garden
Dec 2016 • Couples
It is not a huge botanic garden comparable to London or other European cities, but still a good place to visit especially, if you also plan visit the national museum around the corner.

The entrance fee to the big glass house dome is cheap and it it is worthwhile to visit.
They also have a lift to go up to the top of the dome, but is was closed for renovation when we visited.

The surrounding park is for free and also nice for a little walk.

Behind the garden is a nice road with trees and several nice modern coffee shops.

Beautiful and inexpensive oasis
Apr 2016 • Friends
This gem is so pretty. Flowers and plants in the city abound. It is very steamy in the summer though. You can see informative talk about the giant fish too. Very affordable.

Garden in Glass

Although small in size and nothing much can be done here, but it's quite refreshing place to visit. Just a walking distance from National Musuem of Natural Science.

It's a Jungle In There
Aug 2016 • Family
The botanical garden building is a jungle on the inside. The place is a giant greenhouse with many interesting plants. It is pretty hot, so you will want to bring some water. Tickets are cheap and can be purchased right outside the door. The area around the building is also lush with greenery and is worth a look as well.
