Botanical garden is a nice place to enjoy nature in Taipei. It’s a good opportunity for young children to explore in a natural way. A great alternative to indoor playrooms.

I thought these gardens were lovely. It is so nice so have a beautiful green area in the city. Lots of walking paths. The best part was the birds. Wonderful place to walk and check out the birds. No admitance fee.

What a magical little garden to escape a dingy grey city in! Admission is free, some gardens are well-tended and some are left overgrown.

We unfortunately missed the lotus blooms but the walks though the gardens more than made up for our initial disappointment. We spent two hours there and saw many interesting plants.

Just wander around. It is tranquil and reflective and a huge bonus in a busy city. Please do not miss the ponds with the enormous water lilies. It is almost unexpected in terms of its size and beauty and we just stood in awe. Excellent...More

I went in here for a wander but was a little disappointed by the real lack of stuff to see. It's a nice walk but could be improved with some proper labeling and tidying up. There was a large section I passed that was closed...More
