In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, “pretend to go abroad” trips have become a hot topic in Taiwan. On that note, the Ki-Pataw San-Tseng-Chip Park (北投社三層崎公園) located in Beitou District has once again come under the spotlight.
Modeled after the famed Furano flower fields in Hokkaido, Taiwanese who are eager for travel can visit the blooming flower sea on Jan. 27 and imagine themselves in Japan.
Featured on the sloping field are various brightly-colored flowers that create an illusion of a never-ending carpet of blossoms, making it one of the most popular attractions in Taipei.
According to the Public Works Department of the Taipei City Government (台北市工務局), this year will feature a display bigger and grander than before.
In addition, neighboring businesses will work with the government to create a light travel itinerary for Beitou.
Over 90,000 pots of flowers and plants are crossed and arranged in the entire sea of flowers area, forming a natural, huge carpet of flowers that will be on display until the end of February.
Taipei residents can take the MRT to come to Beitou to enjoy the flowers, soak in the hot springs and eat tasty, local delicacies.
