I think I’ll have to inform you…

you’re not in Holland. You’re in Taiwan! Yes, you’re reading it right. This astoundingly beautiful flower farm is located in Taichung. Flowers of many varieties can be found here.

It is undeniable that Tulips are the dominant species and are prominently cultivated. In fact, there are red, pink, white and other colors of Tulips that can be found here. So, if you’re fond of these, then you must visit this appealing place.

How to get to Houli Flower farm?

I’m living in Jhunan/Zhunan, so if you’re just nearby, then I’ll share with you some tips on how to easily get to this place.

I recommend grabbing yourself first an “Easycard” or Yoyo card such as this:

Easycard in Taiwan

This card is so handy in case of transportation. It can be used in buses and trains. You can even purchase goods and services using this one, as long as the establishment accepts it. This can be bought for 100 NT and can be loaded up to 10,000 NT at convenience stores such as 7-11, Hi-Life, OK mart, etc.

If you wish to travel by morning then I suggest that you’d rather take the THSR Shuttle Bus.

It departs from Zhunan Science Park by 15:50 and 06:20.

This bus only accepts Yoyo card, unlike in conventional ones that take coins/cash for fare.

The upper line is the Mountain Line and the lower one is the Coastal Line.

 

Next, get off at Houli Station and grab yourself a taxi. You can take the bus, but you have to locate Houli Elementary School first because that is where the bus stop is located.

Here’s a hint, taxis may charge you with extra if you’re going to visit during Chinese New Year.

Alternatively, I just recently discovered that you can get off at Tai’an Train Station too, though I’m not 100% certain if there are available Taxis that can readily fetch you up to Taichung Flower farm.

 

Anyway, try not to worry about food. They offer smorgasbord or an eat-all-you-can buffet inside! Quite suitable for families or for groups, ain’t it?

Or a grill/fry-all-you-can perhaps?

Taiwan Train.

Are you planning to bike all the way to Taichung Flower Farm? No problem. You can actually bring your bike with you inside this “local fast” Train. Just don’t forget to bring your bike bag with you just in case. Taiwan is a sanctuary for cyclists, actually. KOM or King of the Mountain Challenge annually takes place here.
