Chungshe Flower Garden (中社觀光花市) at Houli Township, Taichung city is our next Taiwan destination after experience the past life of Taiwan at Taiwan Times Village (寶島時代村) at Nantou County. Chungshe Flower Garden (中社觀光花市) is a very big garden with beautiful landscape of flowers to admire. I’m not really into flowers and I might name some of the flowers inaccurately. Please correct me if you noticed any flower is named wrong by me.

Chungshe Flower Garden (中社觀光花市) covers a very big area of six hectares. The landscapes here actually change according to four seasons of winter, spring, summer and autumn. So, no matter what time you visit this garden, there are flowers for you to admire. You can refer to the flowers table in their website’s link. According to the website also, there is a unique technique of refrigeration applied in the garden. This technique can regulate the flowering time and allows 150,000 tulip flowers of different types to be grown. The blooming time for the tulip is from January to March every year. Of course, it is not just tulip flowers, let’s see some of the other flowers photos I took at this tourist attractions of Taiwan.

Chungshe Flower Garden (中社觀光花市) has amazing landscape of flowers.

The first thing we spotted here is this windmill. Not sure if it is a real windmill since there is no strong wind on the day we visited. There are other European style structures here such as this windmill, so it is a nice spot for wedding photography.
