When it comes to seeing cherry blossoms in full bloom, it’s a little-known fact that, Taiwan around March time is a good substitute to the more popular destinations of Korea and Japan. The Key West team will share their experience .Here are the places to see these beautiful flowering trees in Taiwan.
Yangmingshan National Park
This park is usually where the cherry blossoms first become visible. Yangmingshan is one of Taiwan’s finest national parks, and it’s a favored place for hikers and those looking to get out of the city for a breath of fresh air.
Many of the cherry blossom trees here are planted alongside hiking trails and paths.
Alishan National Scenic Area
People take a trip up the mountain railway to witness the sunrise over the sea of clouds here at Alishan and is popular throughout the year. The absolute best time to visit the cherry blossom season is from January to April. The area is flooded with color, and it’s modestly breathtaking.
There are tons of reasons to check out this beautiful little village, especially during the cherry blossom season, the scenic surroundings become even more extraordinary.
The park is small and it’s not quite as busy as some of the other locations as the newly planted cherry blossom trees here draw quite a lot of local residents while they are in bloom.
Wuji Tianyuan Temple
The temple overlooks a stunning garden full of a variety of blooming trees and flowers so it’s best to take a trip here during early cherry blossom season. It is a much more serene experience than the other more tourist-oriented areas like Wulai and Alishan as the blossoms located right by the temple and in a relatively quiet part of Danshu.
Wuling Farm is no different as farms are always popular destinations for a weekend away in Taiwan. The area metamorphose into a veritable sea of pink flowers during the early months of the year.
Sun Moon Lake
Embraced by unparalleled natural beauty, Taiwan’s largest inland body of water is actually a man-made lake. Dotted around Sun Moon Lake itself are cherry blossom trees. The Formosan Aboriginal Cultural Village is the best point to enjoy the spectacular colors.
