PeacefulThis is a good place to sit and read a book after you have looked around. I was there in the morning and didn't see any large tour groups. Cost 80 Yuan admission. They offered senior discounts for Taiwan residents, but not for foreigners.
Tranquillity in midst of a bursting cityI was really surprised how the gardens changed my mindset in so short time. In the middle of this noisy and vivid city there is an oasis of peace with an atmosphere usually only nature provides. The gardens may seem a little bit kitschy at some parts but never in a negative sense. The buildings are not in best shape, but I would say that, that adds to their charm. Only bad thing I can say is that I couldn't got to the first or 2nd floor of the buildings to enjoy the view, which is described in the prospect. To visit the mansion one needs to join a guided tour. They start every 2 hours. I didn't do that and just enjoyed the gardens for 2,5 hours. Don't forget to bring a notebook and collect all the stamps from the garden!
Nice but kind of getting oldThis is a glimpse of what a rich person's mansion/gardens might look like in the early 1900s. It's interesting, but everything is aged/old and not well kept up. It would have been gorgeous in it's heyday, or if they kept it up to show off the opulent state it once had. Also a lot of mosquitoes around because of the water. It costs 80NT for foreigners without a Taipei ID.

Very niceBeautiful place, and very easy to find. When we went, there was not admission fee, but I think it depends on the day and hour you go. It is very spacious, but there are a lot of stairs - not disabled friendly. If you are interested in trying on traditional clothing, you can rent an outfit while there as well. Children through adult sizes.
Amazing GardenVery peaceful little garden in the heart of Banqiao. It's worth getting up early to attend in advance of the crowds of Chinese tours that come through. My girlfriend and I we're there practically alone at 9:00 and you really get a sense of peace and tranquility. The gardens are perfectly maintained, and there are endless amounts of nooks to wander through.
