Taiwan 8D7N Free & Easy Tour - Zhong She Flower Market (中社观光花市)

Day 2 into our Taiwan Trip. We engaged a driver to take us from Taoyuan to Taichung. If you wish to know the driver's contacts, visit our itinerary link here. Our priority was to visit the places of interest first before checking in to the hotel in Taichung in the evening. Hence, we started travelling out early in the morning after checking out from Audi Garden Business Hotel (Taoyuan).

We arrived at Zhong She Flower Market at 1020am. It took us about 1.5 hour to travel from Taoyuan to 中社观光花市 (Taichung). We thought that the weather will be cooler in the November months but it was exceptionally sunny and hot! Nevertheless, if you are flower lovers, this is one of the place to be.

Depending on your day of visit, the flowers bloom at different months. For example, you can catch Tulips between January to March and Sunflowers between May to October. You will be amazed by the myriads of flowers at the fields.

Zhong She Flower Market has breathtaking gardens with a zesty European flair. Many are surrounded by the theme of love with backdrops suitable for wedding photo shots. We may not be in our pretty gowns or smart suit but love is in the air.

The main attraction is the flower fields. Each plot has different vibrant colours of flowers in full bloom. Visitors love to walk into the center of the field and take gorgeous shots of themselves in the midst of the flower bed.

Love the swings and piano that they place in the middle of the flower field. Giving an extra romantic feel and touch. 

Apart from admiring the flowers, children get to feed fish by the pond as well. You can purchase fish feed on the spot and the fishes can be clearly seen in the waters. With the cloudless blue sky at the backdrop, the clear waters gave a nice mirror image of the beautiful scenery.

We were extremely lucky to meet a friendly guy with an iron mask on. I called him "彩虹达人" as he is in a colourful rainbow suit bringing joy to the visitors with his creative and wacky photo shots.

Its a bird... its a plane... its.....

Pick us up!

We spent about 1.5 hours at Zhong She Flower Market before heading out for lunch. Plan your itinerary and check out the website for more details.
