It was originally established by the Japanese while they were occupying Taiwan during the early 20th century, so there are many buildings that have Japanese architecture.

To walk around the entirety of the 1.6 km squared campus at the National Taiwan University takes a good few hours so you’ll need your walking boots on, but it has many beautiful buildings and areas of natural beauty, plus there are a number of museums to visit:

  • NTU Agricultural Exhibition Hall
  • NTU Museum of Anthropology
  • NTU Herbarium
  • NTU Heritage Hall of Physics
  • NTU Geo-specimen Cottage
  • NTU Museum of Zoology
  • NTU Insect Museum

They have differing visiting hours but generally open between 10:00 – 16:00 (some close for any hour at midday).

Most of the area is pedestrian only, so you’ll not be bothered by the noise of traffic, and it’s generally a very tranquil area to walk around, with lots of shaded areas and cafes to escape the sun for a while.

The National Taiwan University campus is a huge place that’s ideal for walking or taking in a museum or two.
