At Lin Family Garden, walk through the Chinese-style garden and learn the story of Taiwan’s richest family of rice and tea producers. The garden dates back to 1847 when the family built a house for storing rent crop, with a courtyard and several pavilions. Today, the garden features variously shaped pavilions and mansions, patios and corridors, artificial hills, arched bridges, and several ponds. After some exploration, take a break under the shade of old banyan trees on the bank of the largest pond. For an all-encompassing view of the gardens, climb the open-air platform of the central building--once used by owners to supervise the field workers.
