Tian Yuen Temple, Xinbei
(4.1/5 based on 40+ reviews on the web)
Cameras are a must for most visitors to Tian Yuen Temple. Best known for myriads of pink cherry blossom flowers, the temple attracts most visitors in late February/early March when the trees are in full bloom. It gets crowded in season, so arm yourself with patience. Outside of cherry blossom season, you can savor the temple's striking colorful five-story pagoda with figures of Taoist deities on each level. A shuttle bus service takes visitors to the temple, but keep in mind that the return service ends in early evening. Make Tian Yuen Temple part of your personalized Xinbei itinerary using our Xinbei vacation generator.

  • The journey from the station of MRT tamsui took around 30 minutes. The entrance to the temple is located on the mountain and next to a small street (look for the 7 - Eleven – is the only notable reference point). the temple consists of a complex of temples in the path of entry and a tower of 5 floors as well as the cherry trees, I seriously suggest visitors to climb the tower. The view from the top floor on a clear day is amazing (there is also an elevator for those who are unable to climb stairs). While it was a day of the week, tourists from all parts of the island were there to admire the cherry blossoms. There were all kinds of people admiring the place, from elderly people and families with children, as well as a fair share of photographers (amateurs and professionals).

  • 在淡水住了數年都沒去,直到這些年因賞櫻聞名,才和朋友特地前去。平時去,要搭公車才行;賞櫻季節則在淡水捷運站有接駁車往返,很方便。 無論是在步道上、爬上坡,或是登上天元宮俯瞰,整遍櫻花林都十分賞心悅目,怎麼拍照都很美。 
  • 淡水天元宮每逢三月都有不少遊客慕名前來欣賞盛放的櫻花,去年三月原本打算來台欣賞,但奈何原定的假期趕不上櫻花盛開的速度,趕不及欣賞。今年終於有機會欣賞到櫻花盛開的景象,而且前往天元宮的方法非常簡單,因為每逢櫻花盛開的季節,淡水捷運站旁的巴士站便有轉門前往天元宮賞櫻的巴士供遊客乘搭,故完全不用擔心交通問題。除了日本之外,台北亦是一個賞櫻勝地,為喜愛欣賞櫻花的遊客提供多一個選擇。
