    Plum Garden Beitou

    A waste of time unless you are interested in a small exhibition of Teresa Teng, a song artist back to 80s and another historic figure. Most people complete the viewing under 10 minutes.

    A Quintessential villa

    2019-09

    The famous calligrapher Yu Youren used to live here, and the tranquil Japanese style villa has well reflected his aesthetic taste. The local government has done a great job in both renovation and maintenance of the property as well as the trees/plants. When I was there, a special exhibition of the famous singer Teresa Teng (who died tragically in 1995) was being held so no photo was allowed inside the house. It was free admission, but you have to take off your shoes in order to preserve the floor. A lovely place to visit!

    Plum Garden is a lovely small house near Hot Spring Museum. Calligraphies of Mr. Yu Youren, an educator, are displayed. The entrance is free.

    this very nice house takes 5 minutes if you want, and it's free so no reason not to go in, - you have to take off your shoes to do that

    The lady was nice. We had to take off our shoes and put at the designated place. The calligraphy was interesting and had a peeking into the life of the greatest artist. They have really nice souvenirs sold there. The folders and keychains are really nice.
