Though the Shilin Guandi Park is not a nature’s painting as like the others two previously mentioned. This is one of the finest man-made attractions in Taipei. This park is fully lawn-spread though colorful flowers bloom here and there to make the scene pretty. There is an artificial lake where the fountain drains into. Take a visit to escape the early noon sun or just continue being there till the early evening to see kids playing, couples jogging and the elderly chatting.
The Daan Forest Park is one among the several parks of Taipei which has to be mentioned without any miss, as the sceneries are incredibly awesome. This is the most loved location where locals make their weekend picnics often. Sit near the lake to see eels and fishes swimming, see bee’s strawing honey from the multihued flowers or just lay on the green carpet to relax.
The flora resources are plenty to ink, and so that of fauna’s too, but Taipei Zoo is one to accept as the zoo shelters thousands of wild animals that have been adopted from various parts of the planet. See giant white panda, koala, penguins, giraffes, tigers, lions, elephants, gibbons and other hundred species unchained and kept in their own habitat set-up. Many birds and water living creatures do share the land. This mesmerizing place is a must go zoo.
