WHY WE LIKE IT
The gardens are really lovely–they make a great spot for taking a break from the hustle of the city.
WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE
The gardens are on the smaller side. And English-language tours would be a welcome addition.
GOOD TO KNOW
Two-hour Chinese-language tours are available at 9:00am and 2:00pm and start from the HePing West Road entrance of the Taipei Botanical Garden.
