Yangmingshan National Park, Taipei

(4.2/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
Centered around Qixing Mountain, Taiwan’s highest dormant volcano, Yangmingshan National Park, features 13 hot springs and several scenic trails easily accessible from central Taipei by frequent buses. Smoking fumaroles, Taiwan blue magpies, and rhododendrons growing from andesite rocks stand out as the national park's trademark sights. Enjoy a stroll around Dream Lake and visit Grass Mountain Chateau, Chan Kai-shek’s summer residence. You can see a staggering 1,360 species of plants as you wander around the park's rolling grass hills, which were created after the government burnt forests to prevent thieves from stealing rich sulfur deposits. Covering 114.5 sq km (44.2 sq mi), the area serves as a popular weekend and holiday outing spot. Make Yangmingshan National Park part of your personalized Taipei itinerary using our Taipei vacation generator.

  • From the end of March you can see the scenery until late April, about a month, sea potato (color) is in full bloom and color fields spread all over. Because there are several fields from picking yourself in right field. Depending on the field, but 10 100 seems to take admission in source field. To go to the local as there are some ways we went by bus from Beitou MRT stations. Just in the toilet problems.... And meal in the restaurant, and dispense with it might be safer. As an aside, that explore the field during boiled corn was delicious, eat one, also on my way home I bought was delicious. Corn beside a mountain is a nice delicious Greens that Su (cimerootanywatari) was sold at a low price, so cooked it in a room, pleasant memories.
