Very relaxing place in the middle of a concrete jungle. Some parts are closed on Sunday/Monday. It's free and there are a lot of places to relax and enjoy the scenery. The pond area was a little dirty with trash and there were a lot...More

Went Taipei for business trip and stayed over weekend, so I go to the Botanical Garden by taxi and had a nice stay there. There is a large lotus pond, during Summer when there’s Lotus flower blossom, it must be very beautiful. There are also...More
