Zhongshe Flower Market, Taichung – Some 165 kilometers south of Taipei is the city of Taichung wherein you can get a taste of the city’s rural lifestyle. Being one of the must-see tourist destinations in the area, the Zhongshe Flower Market is an experience on its own. Showcasing different flora and fauna in the entire property, Zhongshe delighted my senses because of its simple yet attractive vibe.

Zhongshe Flower Market is one of the popular flower markets in Taichung. Located approximately 28 kilometers north of the city center, Zhongshe Flower Market can either be accessed by car, bus, or train.

Featuring a number of plants and other ornamentals, the flower farm is a famous destination for plant lovers and for those who want to have photos perfect for the gram. I am particularly surprised with the area of the farm because it reminds me of the flower farms in my hometown in Benguet. Some of these plants come in different colors, shapes, and sizes – it will tickle your imagination when taking those gram-worthy photos. A number of plants are also up for sale at the entrance of the flower market.
