Taipei Botanical Garden, Taipei

4.0
#6 of 53 in Parks in Taipei
A place of a great historical and ecological value, Taipei Botanical Garden ensures a calm, educational, and relaxing day out amid nature. Ever since the beginning of the 20th century, the garden has served as a scientific center and a place for academic research. Some time later, during World War II, it was severely damaged, but was quickly restored to its former glory. Today, it serves as a beloved walking route for families and couples, offering the chance to admire over 1,500 different plant species distributed across 17 sections, featuring nine ponds throughout.

  • The location close to the subway station to a distant priority xiaonan. National Botanic Gardens offers a very wide variety of plants and scale is very large. Think it would be great if you visit museums and history with the earthlings.

  • A quiet and scenic place filled with plants and trees endemic to Taiwan and a handful of countries. The pond was particularly scenic, with plenty of colorful East Indian lotuses in full bloom. Check the flower calendar on the Botanical Garden’s website for the current list of flowers in bloom. Admission is free.
  • A lush botanical garden full of lovely plants. Great place for a summer stroll, preferably in the morning or late afternoon so not too hot.
  • A large park that is peaceful, teeming with different types of plants and trees, and free! I spent 3-4 hours walking through the park (some parts were closed due to renovation) and I took my time examining the different plants and fish and birds. The garden is segmented to different groups of plants (palms, flowered trees, ferns, succulents, etc) to make viewing easier. I was lucky as there was a man who has set up a telescope aiming directly at these two rare owls! He was also very willing to share. I would not have seen those fowls if it weren't for him. The only gripe I have with this place is the fact all signs of the plants' names use scientific names. Scientific names are not helpful when a regular person is trying to identify a plant. I had to whip out my phone to realize (for example) that Ficus carica is a fig tree...I think giving us the common names and scientific names would be a lot more useful. All in all, a peaceful place that I recommend you go visit if you want some time away from the city!
  • A quiet oasis with tons of greenery and a lotus pond. Makes for a lovely stroll after a visit to the history museum nearby.
  • Beautiful and quiet. Great place to walk through before checking out the history museum.
