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.

    On walking through the gate I thought I was going to be a bit disappointed. But there are a lot of little segmented gardens, all of which you can walk through. Not too many areas to sit down. There are areas for ferns, palms lilies, which would be nice in summer covering a large pond, and ethnoplants....a term I'd not come across before. Well worth the time getting there. I walked from Chiang Kai she subway, but getting there from Xiaonanmen us much easier.

    Very well organized. Not too much in bloom in the fall but lovely to walk around and visit. It was a bit difficult to find but guess that we went in a back door.

    We enjoyed the peace and quiet walking among the beautiful plants. It was a relaxing stop from our too short visit.

    Won't spend whole day but fun if you're in the 'hood


    Free to enter. You'll spend maybe an hour tops. Paths can get muddy so don't wear your best-est, newest white sneakers. Just around the corner is the "National Taiwan Craft Research & Development Institute Taipei Branch". Gift shop is big and filled with awesome Taiwan made goodies.
