The Lin Family Garden - located in Panchiao a suburb of Taipei
It is still possible, in modern Taipei, to get a taste of ancient China. Lin Family Garden, a beautiful oasis in the suburb of Panchiao, is Taiwan's finest example of classical Chinese-style landscaping and residential architecture, and is reminiscent of a serene village from a bygone era. The nearly three-acre garden follows classical Chinese principles: flowers, artificial mountains, rocks, streams, and ponds symbolize nature, while manmade elements -- cottages, pavilions, towers, and bridges -- complement the setting.
