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.

    Not very interesting


    There was not much to see. The place is frequented by locals, mostly for relaxation because it was a very quiet place with lots of trees shading people from the afternoon sun. The place looked like it needed some renovation or better maintenance. Perhaps it's also because there was on-going construction beside it the visit to The Botanical Garden was not that interesting.

    Large collection of Plants and Trees


    + Only a few minutes walk from the MTR + Nice place to spend couples of hours to walk around and know little more about plants and trees

    Very peaceful


    The gardens are easily accessed by walking or MRT, and are very peaceful. There is a large variety of plants and trees, and plenty of places to site and relax. The lily pond is especially nice.

    Nice garden with close view of many birds


    The Taipei Botanical Garden doesn't disappoint as a birding destination. It is also a nice place to walk around and take in all the plants and sounds. Easily accessible from the MRT station Xiaonanmen (G11).

    Out of season!


    We went from Chiang Kai-shek memorial hall to the botanical garden. It was a long and confusing walk, because it’s located in the middle of the neighborhood. Small average garden in the hustle and bustle of the city. November is the dry season in Taipei, so the garden was not so green or lush. It was off-season but at least we were there once and that’s it.
