Yangming Park is situated on the north side of Taipei, and is about 17 kilometers from the city center. Because the park was covered with grass, it was originally called "Grass Mountain." After the Japanese era, in order to commemorate the Ming Dynasty scholar Wang Yangming, Grass Mountain was renamed Yangmingshan in 1950, and the Yangmingshan Administration was set up to develop the national park.

Yangming Park has an area of 107 hectares and is located mainly on Mt. Datun. With a height of 445 meters, the park is surrounded by Mt. Qixing in the rear, Mt. Shamao on the left, and Mt. Datun on the right. The park also has a great view of the ridges of distant Mt. Guanyin. The climate here is warm and humid, and thanks to relatively cool summer temperatures, the park is a perfect place to escape the heat. The park is the only natural place in Taiwan that possesses dormant volcanos, sulfur fumaroles, and hot springs.

The park is planted with plum, cherry, peach, azalea and camellia blossoms, and consistently attracts throngs of people to view the cherry blossoms every spring. There is also a flower clock that is assembled from various seasonal flowers. Do not forget to take a picture with this flower clock, which is the showpiece of Yangming Park, when you are here.

In Yangming Park, visitors can view the flowers in spring, escape the scorching heat in summer, watch the silvergrass flowers and colorful leaves in the fall, and soak in the hot springs in winter. Yangming Park offers different stunning views and enjoyment throughout the four seasons. Its wonders await your exploration.

    Come Cherry Blossom Time


    The park have many Cherry trees, when it's blooming season, it is very beautiful, well worth the time to come and visit, otherwise no much surprise to be found here, walking around is very relaxing, but just like any park any where, it's locate in Beitou, not far from any hot spring hotel, we hire a taxi for N.T. $500 dollar per hour at Radium Kagaya hotel, if you have 3 or 4 hour to spare, the taxi will take you to the popular sights, just show the drive a guide book with pictures of any sight you want to see, it's up to you decide to stop or not, we also had lunch at Marshal Zen Garden, delicious treat, taxi wait for us and take us back to hotel, total time 4 and half hour

    Nice place to visit in Taipei


    Yangmingshan is great for phototaking and viewing of the scenaries! I explored the Zhuzihu (Bamboo lake) and Xiao You Keng of YangMingShan, and the views are amazing. Yangmingshan is great for phototaking and viewing of the scenaries! I explored the Zhuzihu (Bamboo lake) and Xiao You Keng of YangMingShan, and the views are amazing. zuzhihu easily accessible by shuttle bus number 9 from xinbeitou mrt station. ate the famous chicken and a wild vegetable with fried noodle. was cloudy and chilly when i was there and upon alighting from the shuttle bus, visited one of the eatery for a bowl of piping hot sweet potato dessert

    不用說,陽明山花季每年都吸引很多人去賞櫻 這次我是一下機回酒店放行李就起行 搭公車到達陽明公園時已經是接近5點 時間比預期晚了近個半鐘 很怕快日落 天黑怎賞櫻? 但原來有便民措施!!有LED燈!! 像日本一樣的夜櫻get!! 而且因為是日落時份 公園能捕捉到日落美景 如果是花季 又身處台北市區旅遊的 絕對不要錯過! 美景媲美近郊喔
