    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Lin Family Garden is Taiwan's best example of Pre-Republican Chinese architecture and gardens. Originally a Fujian merchant's houses, the garden is landscaped with exquisite pavilions, towers, cottages, bridges, artificial mountains, and placid pools, and offers views of distant mountains.

    It is still possible, in modern Taipei, to get a taste of ancient China.
    The Lin Family Garden, a beautiful oasis in the suburb of Panchiao, is Taiwan's finest example of classical Chinese-style landscaping and residential architecture. The garden follows classical Chinese principles: flowers, artificial mountains, rocks, streams, and ponds symbolize nature, while manmade elements (pavilions, towers, bridges) complement the setting. Parts of the Garden were destroyed during the earthquake in 1999.
