Tucheng Tung Blossom Trail

Free admission

The Basics

While cherry blossoms get much of the glory in Taiwan, the display of tung blossoms in Tucheng is just as spectacular. Near the trail’s halfway point, you’ll find Tung Blossom Park, an open performance space and recreational area where you can stop to admire the blossoms. At night, the space lights up as hundreds of fireflies take flight. While it’s possible to visit the trail independently, consider booking a self-guided tour with round-trip transfer to your Taipei hotel to avoid the hassle of public transportation.
