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.

    Nice but busy


    This is a lovely park. Seems more park like than botanical garden like. Opens at 5:30am. I thought going right at opening would be a quiet way to start the day. Not so. Right at opening the gardens were flooded by locals walking, running or doing Tai Chi. But there was plenty of room for everyone and it was a nice way to start the day.

    No place to cool down!


    In contrary to other parks and tourist attraction in Taipei this botanical garden does not have any place to cool down, no hall, co cafe place, no shop. There is Qing Dynasty Taiwan Provincial Administration Hall but there is no air-condition. Actually it is hoter inside than outside. Although there are some places with shadow, I think for non-Asian visitors this is not enough because actually under these exotic plants there is a high humidity so in a hot day unfortunately this garden is unbearable. Apart this, this place in a peaceful. There are interesting plants and flowers. Also there is marvelous lotus lake. My advise is: if you are not used to a very hot temperature and high humidity do not spend there too much time or don't go during summer months in Taiwan.

    Nice place for a stroll


    My wife found this garden listed a a place to visit on Trip Advisor so we checked it’s locations on Google maps and head out after breakfast. I was a fair distance from our hotel but as there was plenty to see on the way it was not an issue. If like us you come from a city with large well maintained and very colorful Botanical Gardens then you will bit disappointed as these are more for the botanist rather than the tourist. We did enjoy the walk through them as it was a nice change to buildings and shops. If you have spare time and enjoy a nice walk in a fresher and relaxing environment then it will be worth the visit.

    Pleasant stroll


    It's an educational and recreational visit, perfect for a little break from the busy streets. No entrance fee, not too big and located near other good sights.

    Quiet Park in the heart of a city


    Quiet peaceful garden in the middle of Taipei, ideal for a stroll or relaxing whilst looking at the many different plants. Many places to sit with lots of shade. Signs and information boards around the park are both in English and Chinese characters. Easy to get to via the Xiaonanmen mrt station (G11) on the green line and exit via exit 3. Turn left almost immediately down the side road and walk about 1 - 2 minutes to the entrance.
