It is known with different names — Houli Flower Garden, Zhong She Guan Guang Flower Market, and perhaps most famously, Chungshe Tourist Flower Market (中社觀光花市), this flower farm is planted with a wide array of colorful flowers. Located in Houli District, Taiwan, it covers an area of six hectares with the landscape varying according to season. But whatever the season you happen to arrive, you will never fail to amaze with what you will be seeing with its colorful flowers.

This low-attitude area in the central part of Taiwan is famous for having many flower markets, which not only sells flowers but also holds exhibits to be further appreciated by the public.

Upon entrance, the European-style garden immediately captures attention, complete with a Dutch-style windmill. Because it is springtime, there were no tulips that bloomed: it is the only area in Taiwan where they can be successfully grown. But even with its absence, you can still feel like you’re in Holland. We arrived early so there were just a handful of people. It was not long before tourists started to flock in who really enjoyed the spectacle. In every corner, the place is picture perfect.
