観光地では無いので、騒々しい団体客もいません。 地下鉄駅からすぐに行ける都会のオアシスで、台北に行ったときは必ず訪れる場所です。 園内は樹木や花、リス、野鳥が多く見られ、太極拳や写真撮影を楽しむ台北市民が沢山いて癒されます。園内に売店など無いため清潔です。 「公園と地下鉄を見れば、その国の民度がわかる」と自分は思っていますが、その点、台北市民の民度はかなり高いと思います。 Because it is not a sightseeing spot, there are few noisy party travellers. Whenever I have been to Taipei, I visited the urban oasis where is reachable easily because it's located near the subway station. In the garden, a lot of trees and flowers, squirrels, wild birds welcome me, and a lot of Taipei citizens enjoying... More

Ok, so it's not the most well manicured botanical garden in the world, but I felt guilty for not having to pay to visit. There are so many hidden paths and sections to the park that if you are a true botany enthusiast, you really could spend the whole day. The variety of plant life is incredible, at least through...

The botanic gardens here are beautiful but not as amazing as ones you can find in other some other cities. However, the gardens are free and filled with a good variety of plants with a nice pond to relax by. It is near the National Museum of History (well worth a visit).

Went here last weekend while in Taiwan for work , it was a really nice place to spend some time enjoying the variety of plants , sitting and relaxing and enjoying a peaceful spot in the middle of a big city. Would love to come back when things are flowering .

The Botanical Garden is not a great garden on a global scale but it is very lovely and peaceful and can be conveniently combined with visiting CKS Memorial Hall and the National Museum of History. Inside the garden is the historic Bu-Cheng-Shih-Sz Museum. This is the former guest house for imperial visitors. As well as the history of the building,... More

As a free of charge botanical garden in downtown, this one is quite good, especially my target is to watch birds. Went there is a rainy morning, but still got quite a few people there doing exercise or just chatting. Saw several bird watchers/photographers too. Didn't find many birds that morning, but still good enough for somewhere so easily accessible.... More

We visited the Garden with low expectations but walked away pretty impressed. We also saw a Kingfisher and other assorted birds besides some fish in the pond.
