Yangmingshan National Park, Taipei Reviews

  • This place is captivating. A perfect venue for morning and/or afternoon stroll. Each section is properly labled. There's a small restaurant in the entrance perfect for quick bite while waiting for the bus. Beautiful park, colorful flowers, fountain, tall trees and waterfalls. Staffs and locals are nice and courteous. Make sure to check the bus timings.

  • It's my second visit to this Taipei landmark. Both visits were during weekdays but it was much quieter last time round. The difference was the season. This visit coincided with the end of cherry blossoms and the start of azaleas bloom time. It would be a 5 star attraction if not for how crowded it was even for a weekday.

  • BEAUTIFUL. Mother Nature at its finest. The beauty and serenity of Taiwan's natural scenery is showcased wonderfully in Yangmingshan National Park. The shuttle buses were timely but some sights are worth giving a miss. Certain trekking paths are quite long and tiring, with the final end not really worth the energy expended. Overall, a sight not to be missed if you ever come to Taipei!

  • This is a beautiful place for hikers! The place is very windy and there are lots of animals and insects to see. Good place for photographer to find things to take photos of. The scenery is also beautiful.

  • Easy to get to and very nice park. The bus down the hill is small on days when it is non peaked. The queue may get long and some groups had to wait up till 3-4 buses before they can board. You can easily spend a day here hiking and looking at the Sulphuric nature of the volcanos. The peak tends to get crowded but there are proper benches to rest and plenty of photo opportunities.
