Taipei City Adventure

Taipei Botanical Garden & National Museum of History

overcast

Strolling along the Taipei Botanical Garden on the early morning was so refreshing because this garden was filled not only with tall trees but also has such a diverse ecological system where you can find ponds, aquatic plants, flowers, bamboo garden and other interesting nature wonders all came together in this unique garden. The most convenient way to get here would be through the Taipei Metro getting down at the Xiaonanmen station. Taipei Botanical Garden was created during the Japanese colonisation period in Taiwan was first being a nursery known as Taipei Nursery and later being enlarged and renamed as Taipei Botanical Garden and was the first botanical garden in Taiwan. Taipei Botanical Garden was formerly a site an ancient city in which main activities during the historic era centred around here. Apart from the natural plants and ponds that were unique to Taipei Botanical Garden, another major attraction at this garden was the Bu-Cheng-Shih-Sz Museum. This museum was formerly a provincial administration hall when Taiwan was under the rule of China during Qing Dynasty, where Taiwan was a former province of China. Other than functioning as a provincial administration centre, it also served as guest house to government officials during their visit to Taiwan.
