The weather of this year was a bit funny , same time last year (early arpil 2015) I still manage to see cherry blossoms anywhere in taipei when I visited and this year almost everything is gone, I went online to look for some popular spot to see cherry blossoms, and manage to find the Floriculture Experiment Center which is like 35 minutes away from Taipei city, we took an uber to go there and apparently it is relatively close to Yangmingshan.
While post of those cherry blossoms are gone and the weather wasn’t sunny at all. But the garden was huge, and they have got a good variety of flowers and plants in the garden, so we spent a good 2 hours there walking around , taking pictures and having fun.
My fav photo of the day was taken before we enroute to Silin , I saw a kid with his dad walking along the road and I used my camera to snap it, and it turns out to be my best shot of the day.
And if you are into some sort of portrait shooting? This place maybe a good option too! We saw a few couples doing their pre-wedding shoots there!
Floriculture Experiment Center
No. 32, Lane 175, Section 4, Yangde Blvd, Shilin District, Taipei City, Taiwan 111
Tips: Get a taxi app , it isnt easy to find a taxi when you finish visiting this place. We couldn’t find any uber here that day too.
