Taipei Botanical Garden, with an area of about eight hectares, was an important site for studying plants during the Japanese rule. Many different plant species were introduced into the site from Taiwan, Japan, China and Southeast Asia for the purposes of experimentation and research. So far, the buildings and plant species at the site have far exceeded past glory, with a collection of more than 2,000 plant species. According to plant classification system and characteristics, each area of the Botanical Garden is presented under a different theme, and explanatory signs are set up for each exotic flower and rare herb for visitors. These areas include: Lotus Pond, Chinese Zodiac Garden, Succulent Plants Garden, Fern Garden, Poetry and Literature Garden, Ethno-Plants Garden, Arecaceae Garden, etc. With the changing seasons, the plants within the Botanical Garden also change, and each season brings with it a whole new treescape. If visiting in the afternoon, the tourists will be treated to the comfort of dimming light and cooling temperature.

    Island of green in a busy city


    The Botanical Garden dates from the Japanese colonial era (1895-1945). It was used to acclimatize Japanese plants to Taiwan. The Garden is 15 ha (37 acres) and has many varied attractions, incuding the lotus pond. Several heritage buildings are located in the Garden. The garden has over 1,500 varieties of plants. In summer, the Garden always seems to be a few degrees cooler than outside.

    Sculpted nature with relaxation in mind


    The Lotus Garden is nice when in bloom. The columns of tall trees in one of the entrances is stately. You can enter a few of the older buildings at certain times to investigate seedlings and other vegetation collected as well as the history of the first botanists And their demise. Sobering. There’s always something new to see you there. Bromeliads, palms and succulents. A nice place to just collect your thoughts in the city.

    Beautiful gardens have much to discover


    The Botanical Gardens have much to discover, it's easy to spend several hours here wandering along the paths. The giant bamboo grove is cool in summer. You can see many plants that are native to Taiwan.

    Peace and harmony in the middle of Taipei


    Many residents of Taipei simply want some peace and quiet, in a city full of hustle and bustle. The trees are mature and the flowers are emerging with the advent of spring. Some visitors stroll, some jog. The Guest House of Imperial Envoys is worth a look. The docents in the Visitors Centre are helpful. By the way, the best access is by the Bo Ai Road entrance. Take Exit 3 from the Xiao Nan Men station on the Green Line and follow the signs. The Nanhai Road side is completely blocked off by a construction project,

    OK for a quiet stroll, if you just want to fill in time. Well laid out though not much of interest in early February. Glasshouses a disappointment, no entry, definately need some care & attention
