Yangmingshan National Park is located just 17 kilometers from the center of Taipei city, making it one of the most popular national parks on the island. Its accessibility from the capital means that both locals and visitors can enjoy the 113 square kilometer expanse it covers. Best times to visit Yangmingshan are Spring for the stunning array of cherry trees in blossom and Autumn for the golden maple trees. Against a picturesque backdrop of a dormant volcano, valleys, lakes, rivers, waterfalls, and mountain ridges, be sure this one makes your list of places to visit in Taiwan.
