Visit the Zones of the Collective Botanical Garden

The smaller of the two botanical gardens located in Taipei, the Collective Botanical Garden does however have a much wider range of plants, since it’s mainly located inside, with climate controlled zones featuring flora from around the world.

The zones found inside are

  • Tropical
  • Subtropical
  • Temperate
  • Succulents
  • Alpine

As you walk through the huge greenhouse, you’ll start off in the tropical climate and walk through each of the zones.

Succulents – Desert plants, with over 500 succulent plants including many cacti.

There’s also a beautiful outdoor section devoted to native flora, with flowers, plants and a pond full of lilies.

The Collective Botanical Garden was virtually empty when I looked around, so I was able to wander around at will. With no entry cost, and hundreds of plants to see, it’s certainly worthy of a visit.
