Cherry Blossom Season in Taiwan - 2017 Sakura Series - Taoyuan (桃園) [Travel in Taiwan 170311: Yong Long Farm (永隆農場)]


Location: 復興鄉神木路11鄰192-8號, Fuxing District, Taoyuan City, Taiwan

How to get here: Board Bus 5301 from Fuxing Road near to Taoyuan Station and alight at Yong Long Farm (永隆農場) stop. Walk uphill in Baling Road for 270 meters to reach the cabins with cherry blossom trees.

Special cherry blossom tour buses also run along the Baling Road during weekends with an extension of the service scheduled on March 18 and 19. The free rides start at 8 am and ends at 5 pm with a 30 minutes of interval between the next bus. The service is temporarily suspended between 12 noon to 1:00 pm to allow drivers to eat their lunch. If you happen to hop inside this mini-bus, show the driver the Chinese name of Bright Farm (光明農場
) to inform him of your destination.

Status of flowering: Most of the sakura trees here had already achieved full bloom.

It was not a big place but it was picturesque.

One thing that makes this place beautiful are the fog cherry blossoms.

The petals of the fog cherry blossoms are color white hence the name of the flower.

These are the typical cherry blossoms that I always see in Taiwan.  

The fog cherry, pink sakuras and Luo-Mu Jie

Pink vs White. Which do you choose?


Another sakura battle. lol

The sakuras in Yong Long Farm really looks awesome.

Can you see me? Haha!

This is one is better. lol

Aside from the pink sakuras, there were also Japanese white sakuras that were blooming.


If my memory serves me right, these are yoshino flowers.

Yeah!

Hotels and other kinds of accommodation were built along the slopes in the mountains of Fuxing District.  The place was almost like the scenery in Qingjing.

Yong Long Farm is a charming place to see cherry blossoms.
