Zhong She Flower Market 中社花市 In Taichung


Full of flowers, Zhong She Flower Market (中社花市) is a tourist attraction in Taichung, Taiwan. This attraction is an excellent travel spot for many flower lovers, macro and landscape photographers. The entrance fee for this botanical garden is NT $250. Amenities located inside Zhong She Flower Market includes has a barbeque grill restaurant, a florist shop and a DIY corner for family activities.

As there is a relationship between flowers and honey bees, a shop named Bai Hua Mi (百花迷) is located inside this premise. It sells freshly spun honey which is contained in large glass bottles. Free honey sampling is also available upon request. You can request for special packaging so that you can pack these glass bottles of honey in your luggage safely when taking a flight back home.

 

 

A lady demonstrated to us on how to identify real honey from artificial fructose honey. Here are two easy tips: First, when a tablespoon of real honey is mixed with a bottle of plain water, shaking the bottle of the mixture does not create foam, and bubbles will disappear in less than 10 seconds. Second, burning real honey on a wooden skewer stick will only make them melt.

In Zhong She Flower Market, the landscape of flowers is such a lovely sight that many visitors can’t resist themselves from taking photographs together with these flowers. During my visit, there were many photographers taking close up shots of these flowers and landscape photographs of this tourist attraction. Small wooden signboards are also planted on the soil together with these flowers, which briefly introduce the species. Seen from afar, the tulips seem to be the main attraction in this garden because of their brighter colours and it’s cup-shaped petals.

Zhong She Flower Market makes an ideal spot for wedding photography as the sea of flowers create a beautiful and romantic background for loving couples to pose. To better explain myself, I got my little tot to become my model in the midst of the purple lavenders.

      I don’t think so as the flowers were seasonal. You might need to check out their website for the flowers exhibition details.

          Hi Jac, thanks for coming to my blog. Well, I visited Cingjing during early February. Most of my days, we set off as early at 9am. As for Lavender Cottage and Zhong She Hua Shi, both are of different days. If you are planning to hire a driver, you can inform him/her and they will help you to plan and maximize your time.

    Hi can I visit this place in December? Will there be flowers then? I can’t understand the website you linked as it’s in Chinese. Is there an English version?

      Hi there, looking at the weather forecast, the temperature will be from 15 degrees to 25 degrees with some light rain. I think there should be flowers. Hope this helps.
