The Taipei Botanical Garden (Chinese: 臺北植物園; pinyin: Táiběi Zhíwùyuán) is located in the Nanhai Academy on Nanhai Road in Zhongzheng District, Taipei, Taiwan. The Botanical Garden covers an area of about 15 hectares and includes over 1,500 plant species.
The Taipei Botanical Garden was originally established during Japanese rule in 1921, although the garden itself has been in existence since 1896. It is maintained by the Taiwan Forestry Research Institute. In 1930, there were 1,129 species in the garden, serving largely academic research and natural sciences. However, the garden was deserted during World War II. After the war, the garden was rearranged and new plants were introduced.

Amazing place for plant enthusiasts to visit, and it's a great place for photographers too. It's large enough to make a stop here an afternoon trip. Conveniently located next to two subway stations that are a few minutes away by foot. Would strongly recommend visiting at the end of June/ beginning of July for the lotus blossoms.

This is a large well maintained garden. It is free to get In and tough can walk around as long as you like. They do have public restrooms that are clean. There are many different paths to take that will lead you around the large area,. You could spend hours in here easily.

Best fully outdoor botanical garden I've ever been to. It's huge, there's a wide variety of different types of plants and ecosystems, and the big lotus garden won my heart.
